At the beginning of June 2006, MAN Diesel opened the DieselHouse – an international attraction in Copenhagen. DieselHouse is built around a giant B&W diesel engine dating from 1932, which qualified as the world’s biggest diesel engine for more than 30 years.

In state-of-the-art display cases, technological progress is coupled with the history of Copenhagen´s power supplies and the development of the B&W shipyard and engineering works over a period of 150 years. The exhibition also focuses on the transportation of goods across the seas and the application of diesel technology around the world.

Opening hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday to Friday. Admission is free.
