Once a year, in early summer, Westphalia becomes an attractive meeting point for miniaturists from all over Europe. That is when at the A2 Forum at Rheda-Wiedenbrück everything revolves around doll's houses and miniatures on a scale of 1:12 and smaller. As worldwide well-respected sales show, 1zu12 - Die Messe shows a representative profile of everything the international miniatures market has to offer - for hobbyists as well as for demanding collectors. With a range of goods that reaches from simple construction kits up to exquisite miniatures, 1zu12 - Die Messe is one of a kind in Europe. Its high quality standards and cosy atmosphere are highly praised by visitors as well as exhibitors. Each year, more than 200 professional craftspeople, artists, specialist dealers and hobbyists are looking forward to presenting their current assortment of goods to an interested public. For the current fair, new top-class exhibitors guarantee diversion and suspense, but of course there are also many old friends who are looking forward to meeting once again.
As a special highlight, some of the exhibitors are preparing a so-called Special for the fair. Those are particularly nice miniatures or scenes as well as intricately decorated scenarios which are presented for the first time during the 1zu12-fair. These special showpieces give new ideas to the visitors and raise the fair over the level of a simple sales show.
At some tables, you can also watch the artists at work - or participate in a professionally guided workshop on Friday before the show to gain valuable knowledge in miniature crafting. Also look at the page Workshops.
Children up to the age of 12 accompanied by an adult do not have to pay.
On both days of the fair, a bus shuttle will be driving from the A2 Forum to the station at Rheda and back.
