Metamorphosis of a listed ring shaped building for locomotive into a garage for vintage cars.
Since 16. September 2006 more than 100 vintage cars are parked on 19.000 m². Here they are restored and maintained, can be visited and bought. Private owners of vintage cars have the possibility to rent a glass garage to protect and as well show their valuable cars which can be taken out for a ride if the weather is fine. The Bistro of the Meilenwerk offers space for business meetings.
Hall: 140 m diameter Origin: Reichsbahn-archetype project of 1930-31.
