Hands-on activities for the Fascination Model Railway Mannheim

Faszination Modellbahn International Fair for Model Railways, Specials & Accessories Bild Mitmach Aktion Mannheim 16zu9 scaled uai

At Faszination Modellbahn Mannheim, you can not only see and buy, but also actively participate in the model railroad hobby.

You can find out what is on offer – suitable for young people and adults – here:

PIKO Spielwaren GmbH, Booth no. 1132
The play area invites children of all ages to linger and play with the PIKO garden railroad and H0 model railroads. Our clamp block cars in both track sizes provide creative driving fun and offer the ideal introduction to the fascinating world of model railroads. Children can also buy an H0 or garden railroad carriage at the PIKO stand and paint it individually.

Model Railway Junior College Europe from the BDEF, stand no. 1190
At Junior-College Europa, children and young people are introduced to model railroads at sensibly sequenced stations by building and playing independently. Under the guidance of experienced model builders from the model railroad club at the Thoma-Mann-Gymnasium in Stutensee, they make their own small diorama and learn everything they need to know to creatively design their own layout – all at eye level: by young people for young people. Meanwhile, parents can take a relaxed stroll through the halls. Afterwards, everyone can take their diorama home with them.

At the LEGO table with the track circle for the clamp building block cars, everyone can give free rein to their creativity and build the craziest vehicles or put together exciting tracks on the wooden train and play on them extensively.

Viessmann-kibri and Vollmer Bastelgarten, stand no. 1214
In the Viessmann – Vollmer – kibri handicraft garden, visitors will be given practical professional tips for working with vehicle and building kits as well as items from the Vollmer stone art series. Electronics enthusiasts can obtain valuable information from us. We look forward to welcoming you to our craft garden.

Gebr. märklin & Cie GmbH, Stand no. 1330
At märklin, children and young people can play with the “my world” product line for children aged 3 and over and with the “Start Up” product line for children aged 7 and over and get to know the märklin world!

Eisenbahnfreunde Mannheim, stand no. 1534
The non-profit association Eisenbahnfreunde Mannheim e.V. has set itself the task of bringing children and young people closer to the subject of railroads as a preventative measure.

We will be exhibiting at the Faszination Modellbahn Mannheim trade fair and have some great offers in store. We are building a Fischertechnik module in combination with a garden railroad, a nostalgic miniature carousel from 1956, glitter tattoos for the children and a craft activity. To mark this special occasion, every child who visits our stand will receive a free children’s ticket for the largest reptile zoo in Germany, the Reptilium Landau.

MEC Waiblingen, stand no. 1662
Members of MEC Waiblingen e.V. will be happy to give you helpful tips on designing and making models, landscapes, buildings and wagonloads for your model railroad. We are also happy to answer any questions you may have about digital control and drive technology for model railroads. There is also a craft corner with plastic kits and landscape design.
