The goal of the Baumgartner Gallery is the safeguard of private collections of model railroads and other types of models. The exhibit also wants to promote the hobby of model railroads as an intelligent pastime for both young and old.
The Baumgartner Gallery exhibits something like 8'000 railway models, dioramas, layouts as well as ship and motor car models.
On several layouts trains run under solar power. A large section of the exhibition is dedicated to tin plate model railways. Postal stamp and historical title collectors are also catered for.
Model railway manufacturers such as Märklin, Hag, LGB and Lemaco present their novelties.
The visitor’s integration is also promoted thanks to the possibility of using the routes of all the gauges with ones own rolling stock material that is compatible with the existing system.
The GB accepts ancient toys either on loan or as a donation to be exhibited to the public.
A shop is at your disposal.
