The Historic Depot St. Peter...


... more than a century of history:

Opened in 1888, the Depot St. Peter was home for the cars of the newly opened "red line" operating from Lorenzkirche to Dutzendteich. The initial car barn and stables were replaced by a new and larger building in 1904. Heavily damaged during World War II, the present-day structure was completed in two steps after the war. Dormant since 1974, the Depot was reopened 1985 as the Historic Depot St. Peter. Since that year it has been home to one of the largest collections of historic equipment in Germany: Streetcars and Busses.

From the first horse-drawn car dating back to 1881 to the beginnings of electric operation in 1896 and all the way to the just recently retired cars built in the 70s, the history of Nurembergs' streetcar is almost completely presented by original equipment. Many of our historic cars are still in operating condition and are regularily used for tours on the streetcar network.

Our exhibits take you all the way from the beginnings of streetcar operation to modern-day technology . Follow the cars on one of the largest model streetcar layouts or just relax in the "Straßaboh-Café". The Freunde der Nuernberg-Fuerther Strassenbahn e.V. in cooperation with the Verkehrs-Aktiengesellschaft Nuernberg invite you to a journey through the history of public transportation in Nuremberg.
