“visit the alps!”
Charlemagne's Kingdom, an Alpine Model Railroad Museum in the Georgia Mountains, features HO Scale German Model Railroads, in a 50 foot exhitbit that depicts the various terrain and architecture of Germany. As an example of Alpine art it is a unique combination of imagination and craftsmanship, the product of the original owners of Willi and Judi Lindhorst. Charlemagne refers principally to the German lands which were ruled by the Frankish King in the 700s. This exhibit is really a marvelous Alpine Model Railroad depicting a modern Germany from "The North sea to the Alps." It is truly a work of art and is the result of Willi's love of his homeland, its people, trains, architecture, industry, customs and culture. (Not only that, but Willi can trace himself as a lineal descendant of Charlemagne!)
What does a railway have to do with Charlemagne? His kingdom included far more than Germany, and I don't think there were any trains in his day. And while it may resemble the Alps, it looks nothing like northern Germany. No mountains there. If you want to be authentic, stick to Bavaria and forget about Charlemagne.
