We saw advertising for it, wasn't sure what it was by the name. We were walking around Helen and saw it-it's behind a toy store and by the Windmill Hotel. It was closed and also a FOR Sale sign is up .

I have been to Helen several times and always made it my priority to see Charlemagne's Kingdom. It was a magical place and I always saw different things each time. It was always well taken care of and well loved by its owners. I introduced it to my family members on several occasions and they felt the same. The owners... More

Very disappointed. It was closed and had a for sale sign out front. Nothing on web site either about them being closed. Was looking forward to seeing.

Very disappointing. There was a trash bag that had burst open in front of one of the doors, and bits and pieces of trash littering the ramp up to the doors. We had really been looking forward to visiting this neat place, but it appears that it is not being maintained, at all.

But I'm sorry to say that was not the case when we visited yesterday. We were looking for inside entertainment for our grandchildren on a cool rainy Saturday. I had read about Charlemagne's Kingdom so we decided to give it a try. The detail in the topography, the authentic German architecture, the mountains and hand painted figurines is a beautiful...

Went with my husband and brother because my brother is fascinated with this stuff. I walked out in tears because not only was it an incredible experience, but the man who built this all has recently lost his wife, and has the place up for sale. I truly wish that we had the time and money to keep this going... More

Stopped in here for a short visit on a SAT. Beautiful model train exhibit, but no trains were running. Cost was a mere $4. I do not see how this place will stay open for business.
