    Google Earth POI's (Points Of Interest) kmz file.

  • The following are my own experiences from previous years. It might be quite different at the next "Märklintage".

    Please also read the programs and flyers from the previous years.

    The "Märklintage" usually consists of 5 main events and a 6th possible event :
    1. The train station in Göppingen
    2. The "Märklin Museum" - ( Erlebniswelt )
    3. The "Stauferpark" exhibition ground
    4. The "Leonhard Weiss" company
    5. "EWS Arena"
    6. Märklin "Werk 1"
    The shuttle bus stops at all these events except at the "Werk 1".

    5. EWS Arena

    The "EWS Arena", formerly known as the "Hohenstaufenhalle", was a new venue at the "Märklintage" in 2015.

    Since "EWS Weigele GmbH" is main sponsor, the arena might change its name again in the future.

    The "EWS Arena" was devoted to LGB - i.e. the larger scale model railroad.

    There were several layouts on display - outside and indoor.

    Indoor there was a special "fundgrube" with LGB-items sold at a discount.

    The "EWS-Arena" also has a huge parking-lot.

    There are toilets inside the "EWS-Arena" and a stall with sausages / drinks.

    At the "EWS-Arena" there is also a GLS-station where you can send, what you bought, back to your home.
