DDR Museum opens motorbike exhibition

At Rochstraße 14c, between Hackescher Markt and Alexanderplatz stations, you will find the thematic exhibition »DDR Museum: Motorrad«, the new exhibition of the DDR Museum. Spread over 800 square metres on two floors, more than 130 restored motorbikes, mopeds, sidecars and scooters await you – almost all models from 40 years of DDR two-wheeler production. In addition, many other objects on the subject of mobility will take you on a journey back in time to the DDR's history of technology and design.  

The motorbike exhibition in the historic viaduct arches provides an exclusive insight into the collection of the DDR Museum, which is not open to the public. In addition to the well-known motorbikes of the two largest manufacturers, MZ from Zschopau and Simson from Suhl, models of smaller manufacturers as well as work motorbikes of the NVA (National People's Army), the Volkspolizei (People's Police) and the fire brigade, racing and off-road motorbikes and self-built motorbikes are exhibited. In addition, visitors can marvel at special two-wheelers such as the »DUO 4/1« vehicle for the disabled, which was exclusively allocated via the DDR insurance company, or an MZ motorbike from the escort of the Ministry of the Interior of the DDR, of which only 30 existed.
