The railway is an important factor for technology development in Europe – initially started in England, it quickly took a step forward on the continent too, with Henschel, an important inventor and manufacturer for the first locomotive and the Transrapid, who had settled in Kassel.Many of these objects can be seen in the technology museum in an old Henschel hall, so that in this workshop the history of the railway can be traced back over two centuries.
After a tour of the tour and lectures, it will be worked out how this development went in the individual countries of the group of participants.
