This pictorial map was commissioned by Deutsche Bundesbahn, the national German railroad. This detailed poster by Leo Faller shows the stops of the German Railway, highlighting the locations where German fairytales and fables take place.
Deutsche Bundesbahn was formed as the state railway of the Federal Republic of Germany in 1949. Headquartered in Frankfurt, the DB (Deutsche Bundesbahn) had a monopoly on rail transport throughout West Germany. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Deutsche Bundesbahn merged with Eastern German railroads to become the true National Railroad of Germany.
Leo Faller (1902-1969) was a German artist known for maps, landscapes and portraits. Faller created many pictorial maps for the Deutsche Bundesbahn.
