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


  • At the "Märklin Museum" you can find the "Fundgrube".

    Go inside and turn right. There should be 2 doors "IN" & "OUT" to the "Fundgrube".

    I'be only been there during the "Märklintage" but it should be there all year round.

    You can find items from all of Märklin's lines there : Märklin - TRIX - LGB.

    What to expect ?

    The items found in the "Fundgrube" are never annonced, and the staff never knows what or when new items arrive.

    The items can be left-overs from e.g. a "Museum-Wagen"-set ( typically the lorry ) or surplus cars from a starter-set.

    Items with minor flaws can be found. ( I've never been able to find the actual flaw ).

    Items with damaged boxes can also be found.

    Prices - discount ?

    From what I've heard from others - and my own opinion - the prices are not as great as they used to be.

    The discount is %-wise not something that you would not get in a good model railroad store.

    But there could be single items that are good bargains.

    Examples from "Märklintage" - 2015

    In the tent outside the Märklin Museum I found the following items for sale - at what Märklin adverticed as bargain prices.

    Seems like the general discount was 30 % off official recommended price.
