A model railway world ...
Bruno Baumgartner has made one of his dreams come true by creating his Baumgartner gallery, a friendly meeting place for model railway lovers and collectors. The gallery serves as an establishment permitting the presentation of private collections to the public.

In addition, various partners, such as Lemaco, Hag, Märklin/Trix and LGB have placed an important part of their production on show. Apart from fine
scale and tinplate models, an impressive number of layouts and dioramas are there to be admired. A real scoop is the fact that all trains running on the layouts are driven by solar power!

Visiting railway modellers have the possibility of running their own models on the layouts and thus enjoy their dynamics in a totally different setting. Those who wish to bring their own models along are requested to announce their intention
by phone prior to their visit.

Other activities, such as new and second hand markets, auctions, special exhibitions as well as a free monthly contest add to the already considerable interest the gallery provides.

Last but not least, the Baumgartner gallery is actively engaged in the preservation of historical railway rolling stock and equipment.
