The invention and further development of prime movers or engines was the basic prerequisite for the development of technically based mobility. The very first usable power engines were steam engines followed by internal combustion engines.

Well, the Dampffreunde Friedrichshafen are enthusiastic supporters of technical functional model building and the historical power engines are the models for their thoroughly functional models: steam engines, first generation internal combustion engines, but also the lesser known Stirling and vacuum engines
are in the repertoire of these recreational mechanics. But they also build steamships,

Tractors and many other things, of course, all fully functional. The Dampffreunde Friedrichshafen are looking forward to many interested visitors at their booth to admire their self-made mechanical works of art. The stand of the Dampffreunde Friedrichshafen is located in hall A2.
