Modelbane Europa

Visit one of Europe’s largest model railways!

Visit Modelbane Europa and experience one of Europe’s largest model railways with more than 400 square meters of layout and more than 100 working trains. The trains run in a German inspired landscape with deep valleys and high mountains, rivers, dark tunnels and impressive bridges. There is life in the streets of the towns with people, trams, busses and ships in the harbour. Also on the railway line there is a brisk traffic. The lines meet in the main railway station with 11 platforms. The trains show more than 100 years of railway history with both steam locomotives and modern high-velocity trains.

You can also experience the East Jutland railway line in mini size, where the guests themselves can make the trains run by pressing various buttons. There is sound and light, which provides an authentic atmosphere, when the trains stand still in the railway station in Hadsten and Lerbjerg. The makers of the model railway have paid great attention to the details of the buildings and the surroundings, which are based on the archive material of DSB.

For the children it is possible to run the trains themselves in the small railway lines in the café or try to build houses or trains for the play line. There is also a cosy café with coffee, tea, ice cream, candy and the specialty of the house, sleeper cake. You can also get tempted by the selection of model trains.
