1:87 scale replica

The Miniatur-Elbtal model railway exhibition (open at weekends and on selected holidays) is located at the exit of Königstein in the direction of Bad Schandau, next to the Elbe-Freizeitland amusement park. It is a replica of the Upper Elbe Valley between Bad Schandau and Obervogelgesang in Saxon Switzerland (as of 1970), representing the railway route through the spectacular rocky landscape with its characteristic river bends on a scale of 1:87. The model trains run on 16.5 mm (0.65 in) gauge tracks (nominal size H0). In the time around 1970, trains were pulled by steam and diesel locomotives as the double-track railway line through the Elbe Valley had not yet been electrified.
The exhibition is also great for kids, who can control a model train on the beautiful large layout themselves, with the remaining part of the railway being controlled by our association's members.
As the exhibition is located in a hall, it is the perfect place to visit throughout the year.
