Faszination Modellbau Friedrichshafen

Welcome to Europe's most popular and most beautiful model making fair! The exhibitors, clubs and associations from all over Europe love the special atmosphere of their fair, the FASZINATION MODELLBAU FRIEDRICHSHAFEN in the border triangle. And they show the public in the large, light-flooded exhibition halls, in the foyer and on the indoor grounds as well as on the popular outdoor area with exhibition lake and direct access to the airfield everything that makes the model builder's heart beat faster. Whether on land, on water or in the air, every year the community comes up with new spectacular demonstrations and shows for every single modelling discipline.

Unfortunately, due to the corona pandemic, no events could be held for a long time. We are all the more pleased that our trade fair Faszination Modellbau Friedrichshafen will definitely take place again from 5th - 7th November 2021. In addition, our trade fair will be held with the live steam hall meeting and, for the first time, the LEGO fan exhibition (in Hall A7).

Visitors can only get their tickets in advance and online via the ticket shop. There are no cash registers open. Only visitors who comply with the 3G rule (vaccinated, recovered, tested) are allowed access to the fair. This will be checked before the entrance to the fair! In addition, there is currently a general mask requirement in the exhibition halls and in the outdoor area if the minimum distance of 1.5 m cannot be maintained.

Further details on admission and online tickets can be found at Tickets & Arrival!

Our participating exhibitors are pleased to be able to present the model making hobbyists again and the hobbyists can again find out more about their hobby.

The mega highlight is the flight show "Stars of the Year": it is the most renowned event for model aircraft pilots with the excellent flight shows of the world, European and German champions. While the indoor air show impresses with innovation and fun, the truck courses convince with their brilliant, detailed functional models in action.
