The Museum für historische Maybach-Fahrzeuge in Neumarkt in the Upper Palatinate is home to a unique exhibition of the most famous and luxurious cars of the 1920s and 1930s. On 2500 square meters of exhibition space, guests of the museum get an insight into the history and products of Karl and Wilhelm Maybach, the founders of the Maybach-Motorenhaus.
Of the 1800 Maybach models built between 1921 and 1941, 160 still exist today. Almost 20 of them can be seen in this museum, but not all of them in the same condition. Here you will find the sawed-up Scheunenfundmaybach and also the Concours classic. The exhibits also include historical engines, transmissions and axles as well as display boards, models and short films. The museum revives the old splendour of the luxury cars of the golden 20s and tells of former prominent first owners and their fates. A small special exhibition shows bicycles and motorcycles of the express works.
Also the museum itself is an eye-catcher and serves not only as a museum. Conferences, congresses, gala evenings and weddings can be held in the Maybach Museum.
