“Wachau” is the name of the Danube valley between Melk (respectively Emmersdorf on the Northern riverside) and my hometown Krems in Austria. In 1909, a railway between Emmersdorf and Krems was opened, the Wachaubahn.

The IGM Modellbahn Wachau, a club of modeltrain enthusiasts, has built a model of the Wachaubahn in scale H0 (1/87). The big diorama shows various famous sights of Wachau: vineyards, churches, restaurants, the Danube University and of course railway stations. The modeltrain is constantly enlarged – more and more models of famous buildings are built.

Four times a year, the club allows the public to see the modeltrain, that is located in Grunddorf, about 10 km east of Krems.

The next opening dates are:

  • December 15 & 16, 2018
  • March 23 & 24, 2019
  • June 29 & 30, 2019

The entrance is free!
