"Märklintage" : Events : Stauferpark
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 Treff usually consists of 5 main events and a 6th possible event :
3. StauferparkAt the site of the former "Cooke Barracks" of the US-Army a new "sub-urbia" of Göppingen has been built.
( Please visit CookeBarracks.com. Quite a lot of interesting history and stories. )
For the "Märklintage" an old hangar is used as exhibition hall, where Märklin and other manufacturers have there stalls and display their layouts.
The hangar originally looked like this :
2 - 3 connecting event tents are put up to accomodate the IMA part of the "Märklintage".
In the tents you'll find several layouts on display, and stalls from various dealers and manufacturers.
Between the hangar and the tents is a large outdoor area that is turned into a playground for children. You can also buy beer, sausages etc. here.
Please check out the official plan / map for the "Stauferpark".
At the "Stauferpark" there is also a GLS-"station" where you can send, what you bought, back to your home.
