Celebrate the 200th Anniversary of the Bicycle in SouthWest Germany

SouthWest Germany will host an array of fun events to commemorate the innovation and invention of Karl Drais: the Bicycle. At the Technoseum, a special exhibition aims to show the technical development of the bicycle since Karl Drais’ first ride on his wooden Laufmaschine to the present cycling culture and the future role of the bicycle in cities. Karlsruhe, the birthplace of Karl von Drais, will celebrate the anniversary of his greatest invention on May 27-28 with the bicycle festival, “Ganz schön Drais,” hosting diverse exhibitions all about the bicycle. In Mannheim on June 10-11 will be “The Monnem Bike – The Festival,” hosting parades through the streets while bicycle performers will be given the opportunity to show off their skills to audiences. On September 16, “Monnem Bike – The Show” will create a multi-visual journey combining the theater, music and light to show the global triumph of the bicycle.
