Take a refrigerator magnet to that frame. If it sticks, as I suspect it will, it isn't titanium.

"TITAN" appears to be a brand name of "ultralight steel". Stahl = steel in German. No titanium there. Cool bike, though!

Whew. I saw this post yesterday and thought to myself, "I am not sure that bike is Ti, but I don't wanna be the first to say so in case I'm wrong."

You can do a search for " Steinweg fahrrad " [ fahrrad=bicycle] to see if you can find something, It will probably be in German but you might find something to translate.
