...steam engine enthusiasts
The Meiningen Steam Locomotive Works is a must for every steam engine fan. It is the only railway repair shop in Western Europe that still has the knowledge and technology to repair and maintain historical steam engines. On a guided tour through the works you will be able to visit attractions such as the locomotive hall with its locomotives and waggons, the heating house and the boiler shop. It is well worth to pay Meiningen a visit for the Steam Locomotive Days on the first weekend in September. The annual festival is a highlight for the whole family and attracts thousands of steam locomotive enthusiasts from all over Europe. At this time of the year it is hard to find accomodation in town, so it is recommended to book well ahead!
