Small but beautiful - in the Jünkerath Railway Museum you will find many interesting exhibits from over 150 years of railroad history!

In 2008, the “Small Railway Museum Jünkerath” was launched at Römerwall in Jünkerath. At that time, the last railwayman had long since retired from Jünkerath station. Not a single one of the once more than 800 railroad workers' jobs in Jünkerath had remained.

What remained, however, were many things that once made up the work of railwaymen in the Eifel and Moselle region. Uniforms, lamps, telephones, stamps, signs, ticket clippers, tools and other equipment. There were also service regulations, timetables, rosters, course books, tickets and many other documents. The Jünkerath railroad enthusiasts have collected, processed, maintained and exhibited all of this in a museum over many years.

After the old museum was completely flooded during the flood disaster on July 14/15, 2021, they looked for a new location and found what they were looking for at Mühlengasse 3a in Jünkerath-Glaadt. A new museum was built on the first floor of a former mill and opened on June 2, 2024.

The 95 m² exhibition area documents the region's railroad history. In the lovingly designed exhibition, interested visitors can admire many objects from the “good old days” of the railroad. Even a complete ticket counter has been recreated by the railroad enthusiasts from Jünkerath.

But the Jünkerath Railway Museum is more than just a museum. It is also an archive, as it houses the largest collection of historical railroad plans in the Eifel region. Building plans, bridge plans, track plans of long-dismantled lines, certificates and other important original documents are stored in the narrow drawers of the steel cabinets in the exhibition room.

More detailed information about the museum and the objects on display can be found on the Internet at https://www.eisenbahnmuseum-juenkerath.de/museum.

The museum is open from the beginning of April to the end of September on Saturdays from 2 - 4 pm. Special opening hours are also available for larger groups by appointment. Admission is free, a donation is requested.
