Quantcast

See Europe with tours from on-base agencies

At Technik Museum Speyer, an hour south of Frankfurt, discover technology from the underwater world to space. Go inside a submarine, see a jumbo jet and a space shuttle, and see and hear the world's largest organ. Classic cars, motorcycles, fire engines, massive steam locomotives, mechanical instruments, rarities and fashions also await. Wiesbaden Outdoor Recreation plans a tour April 9.
