From horse to horsepower – the beginnings of motorised urban transport around 1900

This video is only available in German. The transition from the 19th to the 20th century ushered in a mobility revolution. In addition to petrol cars, electric cars were already on the road at this time. And a mobile filling station for petrol cars, like the Dapolin tanker in the Verkehrszentrum, still needed two draught horses. The Daimler Riemenwagen of 1895 or the Baker Electric Roadster "Victoria" of 1908 exemplify the beginnings of individual transport. Since then, it has been impossible to imagine metropolitan traffic without the tram, a public means of mass transport.
