Hans-Peter Porsche TraumWerk: A Dream World for Railway and Toy Fans
Since its opening in June 2015, the Hans-Peter Porsche TraumWerk has delighted its guests with a model railway of around 400 square meters in size, legendary vintage cars and a huge collection of rare toys. The TraumWerk resides in the upper Bavarian municipalities Anger/Aufham in the region Berchtesgadener Land. Here Hans-Peter Porsche, grandson of the legendary company founder Prof. Dr. H. c. Ferdinand Porsche, turned his long-cherished dream into reality with the TraumWerk museum. On a 55,000 square meters site conveniently located close to the motorway A8 not far from Salzburg, visitors experience a world-class collection. The museum is characterized by a modern, contemporary architecture that provides a beautiful setting for the treasures inside. Its core stylistic element is the building’s design in the form of a horizontally laid figure-eight reminiscent of the typical form of model railways and race circuits.
World-class tin toy collection
Featuring such rarities as a Gauge 1 Marklin Krokodil and an array of Marklin ocean liners, the Hans-Peter Porsche collection ranks one of the best in the world. The museum captures some of the finest pieces from Marklin and other European tin toy manufactures. In viewing the pieces one can easily catch a glimpse of the quality and craftsmanship of such old toys.
A world in miniature – the Marklin layout
If a world-class toy collection isn’t enough, surely a seemingly never-ending miniature layout will fulfill any railway fan’s remaining desires. Detailed work from master modelers and special effects make the experience complete from miniature people to audio sounds to fill the surrounding landscapes.
