Sinsheim or Speyer?

We plan on visiting one of the Technik Museums TODAY! Which one do you prefer: Sinsheim or Speyer?

Thanks in advance!

Sinsheim is the main location of the museum and the indoor exhibition space is roughly double the size of Speyer. I would however base the decision rather on what you're most interested in.

.

If it comes to sights beyond the Technikmuseums - Speyer has by far more on offer.

Everybody I know who's been to Sinsheim says it is worth it, but like Abalada implied, Speyer is by far the prettier town.

The Dom and Pfalz Museum in Speyer are great sites, if you are interested in those sorts of attractions.

The museums will be closing shortly, therefore no need to mention other things close to Sinsheim to see although the museum probably could take you the whole day.

Where did you decide to go and how did you like it?

We spent the afternoon at the Speyer Technik Museum and we all loved it, especially my young sons. They loved the Lufthansa 747, my youngest son loved walking on the wings and his brother enjoyed the large slide down from the aircraft platform. The amusements in the front of the museum were unique also, and they both loved those, too!

We walked around Speyer after the museum closed. We visited the Dome and enjoyed a delicious evening meal at one of the restaurants. I would love to go back as we did not have enough time to enjoy the city.

Thank You all for your help.
