Special museum for firefighting technology

Building / plot situation

The exhibition was located in the halls of the mechanical workshop of the former briquette factory in Haidemühl until the village was relocated due to mining.
After the demolition of the site, the move to two new halls in the Welzow industrial estate has taken place. Visits to the new location are possible by appointment.


The Welzow Fire Brigade Park houses one of the largest fire brigade history collections in Germany and is therefore the ideal destination for technology enthusiasts. In addition to a total of 42 fire engines, 20 motorised fire engines, 12 trailer vehicles, various firefighting accessories, shoulder boards, badges of honour and equipment, all kinds of unique equipment can be admired here, including even a firefighting tank. In the Welzow Fire Brigade Museum you can go on a journey through the history of the fire brigade. The oldest piece in the collection, a hand-operated fire engine from the 1920s, dates back to the time when firefighters rushed to the scene of an incident by bicycle or on foot. In addition, there are numerous rarities and special vehicles from GDR state-owned enterprises that are unique in Germany and which have been and will be restored in detail over many hours.
