A great experience for the whole family ...
Would you like to see a part of the Ore Mountains from a completely different perspective? Then visit our model railway park, where the upper Ore Mountains near the town of Annaberg–Buchholz are depicted. On Europe's largest Gauge 1 track system (in 1:32 scale) operate some 30 steam and diesel locomotives on 770 m² (8,288 square feet) of exhibition area. The layout even features a day/night simulation. And when you are in the mood for a lunch or coffee break, visit our snack bar. The indoor world of model railways is open all year round and is accessible by wheelchair. In addition, a kid's corner and baby-care room are provided.
The model railway is located in the district of Schönfeld in the municipality of Thermalbad Wiesenbad in the Ore Mountains north of Annaberg-Buchholz.
