motorcycle touring holiday Germany Europe classic Ducati Bimota Superbike experience
The vast halls of the 'decomissioned' textile factory where the Schlumpf brothers had stored their collection, are partly left as they were found back in 1977 when striking workers revolted after the Schlumpf brothers had started to break up the company.
One of three Bugatti Type 41 Royales in the collection; the Coupe Napoleon, a replica of the Esders Roadster and this with English Park Ward bodywork.
Only 6 Royales were originally built all with different bodywork on the 4.3m wheelbase chassis powered by a 12.8 litre straight 8 engine.
The impressive 5 litre 450MM coupe painted in the national racing colours of Annam (now a part of Vietnam) where it belonged to the Emperor Bao Dai.
Glorious 1937 Mercedes Benz W125 producing nearly 650 horse power and 1939 W154 Grand Prix cars driven by Rudolf Caracciola and Helmut Lang.
The replica Esders Royale which wasn't fitted with headlights because Mr Esders never drove at night.
The museum seems to have so many Type 57s, a couple have been left in various stages of construction so that all details of the engineering can be seen.
