The fire catastrophe - copy
After the far-reaching challenges of 2020, which was so marked by the Covid-19 pandemic, we all hoped that the new year 2021 would bring a fresh start or a return to life as usual.
Unfortunately, this wish did not last long: on the night of Sunday, 17th January 2021, to Monday, 18th January 2021, a fierce fire broke out in the main section of the Motorcycle Museum, destroying the entire upper floor with all the exhibits displayed therein.
A complete collection of motorbike history, which had been tracked down and acquired all over the world for over two decades with passion and finally presented in the museum in the best possible condition, melted into ashes and wreckage before our eyes.
Along with our own collectors' items, unfortunately many exhibits that donors - museums and private individuals alike - had willingly made available to us were also lost. A sad, irretrievable loss!
