2008 St. Pölten

I managed to take a few holidays during Easter 2008, which I used to visit the "Wuderwelt Modellbau" in St. Pölten (Austria). Tom and Verena kindly offered me to arrive two days in advance, allowing me to see a few sights in Vienna before continuing my journey to St. Pölten.

Exhibition Photos - Lego

The Lego exhibition was a part of a much bigger exhibition about model making, the biggest show of this kind in Austria. There was a total of 19,200 visitors, while exhibits covered about 8000 m². The 8 x 5 m big model of the train station of Frankfurt by Rainer as well as the Capitol built by Dominik were the absolute highlights.

Exhibition Photos - Model Making

Aside from Lego, other models, sellers, demonstrations, etc. were presented, as can be seen in the following pictures.

Wiener Schnitzel

Verena and Tom kindly organized a lunch at the famous Vienna Schnitzelhouse Figlmüller. They had incredibly big as well as incredibly delicious Schnitzel. Luckily we had made a reservation, for outside was a huge queue of waiting people.

AFOL Evening

The AFOL-evening, too, was a complete success. After dinner we had a "Dirty Brickster" and an auction. Afterwards every guest got a bag with about 100 bricks and we immediately started building.

Sightseeing in Vienna

I was able to visit Vienna as a tourist for two days. I managed to see many sights, including the St. Stephen's Cathedral and the Prater in this truly beautiful city.


Since Tom had never built a piggybank, this had to be taken care of on the eve of the exhibition. We had a great time constructing it and got a rocket-punk-pig as a result.
