Velomuseum Rehetobel

The collection housed by this museum comprises over 200 old bicycles. The exhibits range from the invention of the bicycle to the 20th century and are dominated by cycles with a regional connection.

The penny farthings, tricycles and children's bicycles, along with other wheeled curiosities, illustrate the historical development of this popular form of transport. Photographs, posters and insignia, along with accessories such as cycling clothing and equipment, supplement the exhibition.
