"Märklintage" : Food - Toilets
Yeah - all this train-stuff is very nice, but what about a schnitzel and a beer during the "Märklintage" ?
Food and drinkBeing in Germany - there will be plenty of opportunities to eat and drink.
The "Stauferpark" is the main place to eat and drink, with the "Märklin Erlebniswelt" a close second.
You can also get some food and drink at "Leonhard Weiss".
At the Göppingen train station there are no special arrangements, but the famous scottish restaurant, McDonalds, can be found in the station building.
At "WERK 1" the canteen for employees should be open, and there might be a tent selling sausages / beer in the yard.
Just next to the station you have downtown-Göppingen, with plenty of restaurants, sausages, bread etc.
What kind of food is sold ?
Sausages - "brat-wurst" - is a given. Some sandwiches - perhaps pizza slices.
What kind of beverages is sold ?
One kind of beer - typically the local one.
Plenty of soft-drinks. If possible do try a German specialty : sparkling apple-juice ( 50 % apple juice - 50 % sparkling mineral water ) = "Apfelschorle".
ToiletsPlenty of toilets at the "Stauferpark" - but also plenty of people - so there might be a waiting line.
Normal facilities at the "Märklin Erlebniswelt" and at "Leonhard Weiss".
Göppingen train station is a bit trickier, but for a fee you can use the toilet at McDonalds. There are temporary toilets at the station, but they are not that easy to find.
Normal facilities at "WERK 1", but it can be difficult to leave the group during a guided tour. Toilets at various places around the tour and in the canteen for employees.
