Visitor information

The Strassenbahnmuseum is closed until spring, 2009, when it will reopen at a former streetcar depot in Bad Canstatt that was being renovated when the photos in this article were taken.

Watch this page at the museum's German-language Web site for a future announcement of the new museum's opening and hours of operation.

Tram excursions

On the last Saturday of each month, Stuttgarter Historische Strassenbahnen (the organization that runs the tram museum) operates vintage trams on two meter-gauge lines. Trips begin at the Strassenbahndepot Bad Canstatt or Ruhbank (Fernsehturm, a.k.a. Stuttgart's TV tower) and last 35 to 40 minutes. For excursion times and prices, visit the SHB's "Old Timer Lines" page or download an information sheet with timetable in Adobe PDF format.
