Priority Entrance: Miniatur Wunderland inc. Booking Fee

1. Priority Entrance: Miniatur Wunderland inc. Booking Fee

The Miniatur Wunderland has been constantly growing since the year 2001. Having started with two layout areas, Harz and Southern Germany, the Wunderland has opened the seventh area, Switzerland, in November 2007. More layout areas were opened in 2014. The Miniatur Wunderland is without doubt a wonder, not only because of its landscape and surface area, but also due to the technology that underpins the exhibit.  Gerrit Braun and the model-making team have pushed the limits of model construction, with a large part of the exhibit custom-designed and built. It was not possible to use only ‘off-the-shelf’ parts and electronics, primarily because such components are not meant for continuous operation. Additionally, there is a lack of a large parts-base to support the scale of 1:87.  Thus, for example, most of the 150 push-button action sequences are custom-created, as are the Car and Ship Navigation systems.   There are also open-to-view workshops and construction areas in Miniatur Wunderland. This means that you can actually see modelers and technicians work on new parts, observe how landscapes emerge and better understand how much effort is put into these outstanding exhibits.

The ride was great! We had great weather and the crew was very nice and left no stone unturned to prepare a nice afternoon / evening for us. Wine and cheese were delicious and the comments on the individual sights in the harbor were informative and yet relaxed and funny. Gladly again at any time! Many thanks to the entire Maritime Circle Line team.
