Full description
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.

    Enchanting!

    Be sure to look very closely at the displays ... you don't want to miss the fella pulling a penguin in a sled in Switzerland, or the real chocolate sample produced for you in the teeny Lintz Chocolate Factory!! The creators of these displays must have had such fun - adding all the creative, fun little touches :)

    Wow! This place was really amazing! My experience was great!

    The work in this is amazing, It is a nice place to visit with children for instance. There truly is something for everyone here, kids and adults alike will find something to like. It's much more than miniature trains It's a miniature world with train stations, highways, concerts and the world's smallest commercial airport. If you would like to go during the day make a reservation to avoid waiting in line. I recommend going in the evening because it's less crowded and you can really enjoy it more. I loved it.
