160 Years of Märklin

We cheerfully celebrate our customers with a wonderful video that shows the diversity of Märklin model trains. Model railway for every taste: from small to large, from simple "carpet railway" to realistic equipment. From hobbyists with attention to detail to relaxing office compensation. From the dreamy moment to the cheerful breakfast round from young to old - Märklin connects generations. And that for 160 years.


Birthday present

Märklin 160 Years Lok

For the 160th anniversary of the company, we have commissioned a Werbelok at DB. Since 1 July 2019, the 101 064 drives in a neat Verklebung by Germany. The motif of the Werbelok represents a journey through 160 years of fascinating company development, from a small tin toy factory to a world-renowned producer of high-quality metal toys.

Märklin has been connecting generations for 160 years. This message spreads the locomotive now for the next 12 months across the republic and draws attention to the fascinating history of the company, which can be admired from May 2020 in the new Märklineum in Göppingen together with a large model railway layout.

Märklin Magazin – well-informed

The most important information about model innovations, inspiring layout reports, digital features, building and tuning tips and prototype stories – Märklin Magazin, which has been issued since 1965, offers it all. The “Märklin Friend” section is popular, and contains a portrait revealing what model railroading can inspire in life, and what pleasure it brings. The magazine is a fixed part of the club services and a club mainstay – and will of course continue to be so.
