Under the motto #digitalsommerprignitz, an initiative of the town of Wittenberge in cooperation with the Wirtschaftsförderung Land Brandenburg GmbH under the patronage of the Minister President of the State of Brandenburg invited guests to visit Wittenberge station on August 10, 2019, the historic station building of which was recently acquired by the Wittenberge municipal housing association. The aim was to inspire employees working predominantly digitally, for the "town in the countryside", so that they can move to the town of Wittenberge and the region, to work and play in the worldwide network from there. The station building is to be an anchor point for this in the future. After restoration, municipal authorities will move in here to support the digital settlement.
Today, however, there was another opportunity to admire the "old splendour". The dining hall on the ground floor, which some of our guests may still remember as a Mitropa restaurant, could be visited. Since a track from our museum area leads almost to the door of the station, we took the opportunity to draw attention to the Historic Locomotive Shed and offered the visitors cab rides on one of our diesel locomotives.
