PS.Speicher is an exhibition at an old granary in Einbeck, a picturesque town of timber-framed architecture in Lower Saxony. Here, more than 6,500m2 of exhibition space present around 300 historic bicycles, motorcycles and automobiles.
Left idle for many years, the lovingly restored building complex of the former granary is now a listed structure which recently opened its doors to new life. The former silos, once used to store the grain supplies of the Einbeck Granary Co-operative, now house rare contemporary exhibits of personal motorised mobility. The building no longer stores the fodder to power horses but instead examples of historic horsepower. ‘PS.Speicher’, therefore, literally means ‘horsepower store’. The well-preserved building recaptures the atmosphere of bygone days. A separately accessible exhibition on the historic granary addresses the architecture, the turbulent history of the building, and the workings of the partly well-kept historic storage and filling facility.
