I am a bit of a model railway enthusiast and I have been to a number of large train layouts around the world and this is quite a good one. It is modelled on the local area which makes it very interesting. There were plenty...More

We read good reviews of this museum and were not disappointed. Model trains mimics the real world. Many details of terrains of Black Forest and cultural events. Well worth the visit of a couple of hours. Right across from the Hausach train station. Easy access....More

This is the best model railway I have seen. It focuses on realism and landscaping details as well as the trains. It is not expensive (6 Euros) and is not crowded so the people do not get in the way of the trains

Just wanted to add my agreement to all the positive reviews of this place. One of the biggest model railways I've seen - not as big as Wunderland in Hamburg but certainly a good second place. And it's hardly advertised, so if you don't know...More

So many details to see I had to go round twice to make sure I didn't miss anything. The lights dim every 15 mins or so to show the scenes at night, which is lovely. I recommend everyone to visit, not just model train fans.

Simply the best I've seen, and I've been to a few! The extensive layout, based on the actual Schwarzwaldbahn line adjacent, is located beside the station where on Summer Sundays you may also ride the line behind a preserved DB express steam loco. We did!...More

This is a fantastic model railway, there is lots to see and the scenes are very detailed. The whole room alternates from day to night with lighting to emphasise the changes. Not only the trains but also the road vehicles move through the scenery. There...More

It is a nice modeltrain track to see. A lot of effort has been put in and it is very interesting to see how it is all controlled by the computer. The trains have a long track to run and the scenery is nice. And...More

In the quiet town of Hausach a little tourist gem is hidden. The Schwarzwald ModellBahn Hausach is a 400 sqare meter big model railway depicting the railway between Offenburg and Villingen. Doing so this is the biggest model railway in Europe to depict an existing...More
