There are several museums in Europe with a large collection of WWII vehicles. One of these museums is located in Sinsheim, Germany and called the “Auto and Technology Museum”. As the name already suggests, there is more to see than just WWII items.
The museum houses many fast cars like Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maybach and even a Vector. Interesting thing about Maybach is that during the war years it produced the engines for the panzer IV and the King Tiger. Today it is a brand on its own.
The Technology musuem in Sinsheim has a massive collection of WWII material, with several dioramas, like a setting from the Deutsches Afrika Korps (DAK). The objects are packed together in the halls, with vehicles everywhere, various airplanes above your head and even a halftrack up against the wall, beside a panther tank fished up from a bog.
They also have a Junkers JU 87 “Stuka” wreck fished from the water. A very rare object indeed, only 2 complete Junkers JU 87’s survive today.
A Focke Wulf FW 190, a Heinkel Bomber HE 111, a BF 109, and a Junker JU 88 are on display next to other aircraft in the large hall.
A German Panzer train from the war period is also fitted in. It’s a great spectacle to see all these objects gathered together.
The museum has multiple German ww2 tanks, including Panzer III, Panzer IV, Panther, Jagdpanther, Marder, Hetzer (after war Swiss type) and a few more. If you think you’ve seen everything in the hall, just walk outside, behind the hall is long row of American ww2 vehicles.
On the roof of the museum halls you can enter a Junkers Ju 52 transport aircraft a.k.a. “Iron Annie”. Next to it are a Concorde and the Tupolev TU-144 (Russian variant of the Concorde). They are not ww2 material, but they are just cool.

This museum is highly recommended and easily accessible from the A6 highway. Make it a full day on your planning, because it’s really extensive.
It doesn’t get boring because of the different themes, and there is a lot to learn here. They also have a friendly restaurant if you need to rest your feet and have a bite to eat.
