Ambarawa in the old Dutch Colonial Government era was a military city, so that King Willem I wanted to build a railway station to enable the government to transport its troops to Semarang. In May 21, 1873 the Ambarawa railway station was built on a 127,500 sq land.

The glory days of Ambarawa Station which was well known as Willem I station ended with the termination of the Ambarawa-Kedungjati(-Semarang) railway service. With the closure of Ambarawa Railway Station, it then established as a Railway Museum, collecting 21 locomotives which served in the fight for Indonesia’s independence, particularly in transporting the national army. You can also book a train or take the lorry trip for cheaper alternative.
