Ostalgia Convention

In 2024, the Technik Museum Sinsheim invites you to the traditional Ostalgietreffen. On Sunday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., museum visitors and interested parties can experience live that Eastern European vehicle construction had more to offer than just Ladas and Trabis.

At the now cult Ostalgie Treffen, the museum organizers welcome all means of transport built in the former Eastern Bloc countries until 1991. The tinny crackling of the satellites can be heard all day long. In between, countless colorful Simson and MZ machines whiz around. Interested parties learn that the Barkas was mostly used as a service vehicle by the police or fire brigade. And every now and then there is also this rarity to discover: the saporoshez, colloquially. "Fiatovich", a small car manufactured in the Ukrainian city of Zaporizhia. Heavy trucks, but also rare specimens such as the Skoda 110 R, the Tatra 603 or the Jugo 45 provide Eastern European flair in the Kraichgau.

Information for visitors:
The Ostalgie meeting takes place on Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the outdoor area of the Technik Museum Sinsheim. Admission to the outdoor area is free! Note on visitor parking
