    What to see ?

    The "Märklintage" is, IMHO, THE event to visit. There is so much to see, and so many people to meet.

    The "Märklintage" usually consists of now 5 main events and a 6th possible event :
    1. The train station in Göppingen
    2. The "Märklin Museum" - previously the "Märklin Erlebniswelt"
    3. The "Stauferpark" exhibition grounds
    4. "Leonhard Weiss" company
    5. In 2015 a 5th was added : "EWS Arena" with LGB
    6. Märklin "Werk 1". A visit / tour of the "Werk 1" is now becoming a regular event for Märklin Insider Members
    FREE shuttle buses will visit all the locations in this order :
    • Göppingen train station (Bahnhof)
    • The "Märklin Museum"
    • "Leonhard Weiss" company grounds
    • The "Stauferpark"
    • "EWS Arena"
    • Göppingen train station (Bahnhof)

    Additional stops are made at the various spezial "Märklintage" car-park-areas.

    The busses ONLY run in the direction stated.

    A full tour will usually take 30-45 minutes depending on traffic.

    It is generally NOT advisable to use your own car to drive around to the locations; parking is MURDER and traffic is heavy.

    Arrive in the morning, park your car at a parking lot and use the busses for the rest of the day !

    There is also a shuttle train between the station and "Leonhard Weiss" - the railbus VT 98 + VS 98 runs at irregular intervals; approx. once every 30 minutes.

    See also the programs from the previous years.
