NOCH Brand Shopping Experience

The NOCH Modelling World is more than just a NOCH factory outlet: In our shop we carry a large part of the NOCH programme. If you have a specific wish and perhaps a longer arrival journey, please call us before your arrival, then we can inform you whether the desired item is available at our store on the day of your visit.

We are also happy to fulfil special requests. If you would like to have a closer look at the product before buying a pre-formed layout and would like to convince yourself of the workmanship and quality of the landscape, please feel free to contact us by phone or e-mail before your visit. We will then try to arrange for you to see the prefabricated landscape on site. As we are the manufacturer of the thermoformed model layouts, we will of course also be happy to show them to you if you would prefer to order them from your local dealer rather than from us in Wangen. Delivery directly to your home is guaranteed in both cases.

In addition to the regular NOCH range, you will find a constantly changing selection of special offers, discontinued items, remaining stock as well as outlet and sale offers at the NOCH Modelling World in Wangen.

Selection & Variety

You will also find a selection of KATOAthearn and Rokuhan . Many brands and products are always in stock and available for you. Here, too, we will be happy to give you information in advance by telephone as to whether your desired article is available.

Join In, Have Fun & Take Home Great Memories

Happy Birthday! Celebrate with us

We offer the organisation of children's birthday parties on individual request. If your child likes to do creative handicrafts and would like to celebrate his or her birthday with friends in a very special way, we are looking forward to your request!

At the NOCH Modelling World we offer birthday parties for 6 to a maximum of 8 children in the form of a supervised "craft party". The necessary craft materials are provided by NOCH and the birthday child can choose which model to make. After the creative party, all children can take their own small diorama home with them and also receive a "modeller certificate". There is also a NOCH voucher for the birthday child.

The entire modelling party lasts approx. 4 hours and costs 20,- Euro per child. Please note that children must be at least 7 years old. The craft party will be supervised by a NOCH employee. However, at least one adult with parental authority must be present for the duration of the creative party.

Drinks are provided and included in the price.

You are welcome to bring snacks, cakes or sweets.
