Sure, you can always bring your class B motorhome or RV to Disneyland or Disney World. But if Mickey Mouse and Pirates of the Caribbean isn’t your thing, and you happen to be a road trip enthusiast, Hymer-Land might be more up your alley.
Located in Bad Waldseed, Germany, the Erwin Hymer Museum is also known as “the Museum of Holiday’s.” The Hyper Museum is over 6,000 square meters (nearly 65,000 square feet) and has more than 80 historic caravans and motorhomes on display. Visitors get to know the historic and cultural background of the mobile home vacation. The interactive museum also takes you through the technology, development, production and design of all recreational vehicles. Patrons have the opportunity to touch, explore, join in and learn through this state-of-the-art facility.
The two-story museum hall is 19 meters (62 feet) high, 60 meters (65 yards) long. It contains a cafeteria, dining hall and conference operation. Some of the featured exhibits showcase almost entirely original models that date back to the 1950’s, when Hymer motors came into business. Here, the Dethleffs Residential Car, the first German designed and built caravan from 1931, is featured.
The museum first opened its doors in October of 2011. The total construction costs for the museum has been estimated by the Erwin Hymer foundation to have been 17 million euros. The architecture is really quite breathtaking. Renowned architect Joachim Liebel constructed the facility with very futuristic and contemporary style.
