Saga and myth of the Märklin brand

Go on a time travel through 160 years of fascinating company development - from a small factory for tin toys to a worldwide known producer of high-quality metal toys.

The Stuttgart metropolitan area will be enriched by a new tourist attraction. On a total area of around 3,000 square metres, a modern exhibition with an impressive model railway layout is being created. In autumn 2020, the Märklineum is to open directly at the headquarters of the Märklin company in Göppingen.

Products from the entire company history will be presented on 2,000 square meters of exhibition space. The history of Märklin is presented in a clear and understandable way using modern communication concepts. The 400 square meter model railroad layout can be viewed on two levels and will take on even more form when it opens. A self-service bistro and the Märklin Store, which has already opened, complete the Märklineum's range of products. Due to the current Corona Pandemic, the opening will be postponed from June to fall 2020.

Coach operators and tour operators can already make reservations today. All bookable offers have been communicated on and a registration form is available for download.

In addition to the company's own offers, partners from the catering, hotel and other excursion destinations can also be found. It is easy for bus operators to put together a trip to the "Märklin Region" lasting several days.

Currently, a large part of the showcases are already in place, and wood and glazier work is being carried out. Piece by piece the showcases are being filled with the exhibition objects. The model builders work diligently and with great attention to detail on the model railway layout every day.

Info: For already booked rides, which are planned before the opening, individual programs are developed on request.
