A mere five years after the end of horrendous WWII came the advent of the Wild Fifties. Lucky was the person who could call a reasonably functional bicycle its own after the war. Funds were not sufficient to buy and maintain a car until small cars gradually began to appear. The permanent exhibition 50 Years of Goggomobil & Co. shows more than a dozen of these vehicles and provides a view into Goggo & Co, and the post war period of Germany.
