When you walk up the steps of the former front entrance of Märklin’s time-honoured headquarters in Göppingen you begin a journey through time. Every door reveals a fascinating view of the individual production stages required to make the legendary metal toys. Unlike other major brand names, Märklin intentionally chose to retain its entire production in Europe. The coveted collectors’ items are manufactured in Györ, Hungary and at the headquarters in the Stuttgarter Straße. Despite the feeling of nostalgia and childhood memories, daily business always remains a matter of finding innovative solutions and streamlining production costs. Because even legends still need to remain competitive. To this day, Märklin remains the market leader for sheet-metal toys.
