Rene Hoffmeister

Based in Germany

Since receiving his first LEGO® set at age five, hardly a day has gone by without Rene Hoffmeister building with LEGO bricks at least for a few minutes. He has built LEGO models for companies like Deutsche Telekom, Merlin Entertainment, Bosch, Deutsche Bahn, and HCI Capital, and even more models are in the works.

In 1999, Rene founded the largest German-speaking LEGO fan website in the world. Today, the portal receives thousands of visitors each day, and is a great starting point for those interested in the hobby of LEGO building.

In 2002, he started 1000steine-land in his native Berlin. The event, which over the past 5 years has been attended by more than 10,000 LEGO fans, is an annual exhibition of models by European LEGO builders.

This year, some of Rene’s models are to be displayed in Russia and China as part of a traveling exhibition. His models have also been displayed in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Poland, Greece and the Netherlands.
