Hugo Junkers was a genius there seems to be no doubt but he was also a good human being who fell out with the Nazis and had his factory confiscated.

Hugo Junkers set out to make internal combustion engines more efficient and ended up inventing the first cheap and efficient gas water heater. Because he knew that few mothers would welcome a gas flame in the bathroom, he arranged for his heaters... More

There is also English translations on most of the exhibits. The entry is only 4 euros, if you would like to take photos it's an extra euro. If you are... More
