Visit at Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg

The other day I was with a friend and his little son on a little road trip to visit the Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg, Germany. Miniatur Wunderland is the largest model railroad in the world and it is for sure very big. I am not sure who was most excited about the visit, but I think we all was having a good time there 🙂 We was there for hours and there was just so much to watch. At the moment Wunderland has 8 sections, but they are expanding for the next years to come. Each section represents its own location e.g. America, Hamburg, Scandinavia, Switzerland, a big Airport and Austria.  I took a lot of pictures there and would like to share some of them here on my blog.

    Hi Thomas,

    This is really fantastic. Is there an entrance fee to see this work of art? Is it open only on business days? I look forward to your response.

      Hi Kevin
      It must have been a massive work to put all that together, but also kind of fun. I am sure that you will not be disappointed when you visit. Remember to bring your camera.
