Bicentennial of the Bicycle

From the Germania high-wheeler to the Audi Sport Racing Bike

The bicycle’s 200th birthday is fast approaching and Audi Forum Neckarsulm, once the world's largest maker of two-wheelers, will be taking part in the celebrations with a special exhibition on history of bicycles through the end of October. The exhibition will show some of the bicycles produced in Neckarsulm by NSU Motorenwerke AG from 1886 to the early 1960s. Current models will also be on display, indicative of the continued importance to this day as fitness equipment, a handy means of transport across town or across a company campus. Free admission.

  • High-wheeler Germania, 1886
  • Safety two-wheeler "Pfeil", 1888
  • NSU men's bicycle "Pfeil 25", 1929
