When you see this marvel, you will be shocked to think it was not even started until December 2000 by twin brothers with a huge ambition, Frederik and Gerrit Braun. At first there were just three parts: Knuffingen, Central Hamburg and Austria, which opened in August 2001 the following year. By 2012 the Wunderland had grown huge and was Hamburg’s number one tourist attraction. It was now adding a series of diorama representing social conditions and life in various periods of German history. But, to many it is just a huge model railway and by huge we mean the largest of its kind in the world.

The railway consists of over 15,500 m (50,525 ft) of track in H0 scale on over 1,500m2 of floor space with 1,300 trains consisting of over 10,000 carriages. Plus over 100,000 moving vehicles, half a million miniature lights, 130,000 trees, and 400,000 miniature humans. The areas include Harz, the fictitious city of Knuffingen which was one of the first areas, and now including Venice, Italy the Alps and Austria, Hamburg with a replica of the airport and planes that take off, America, Scandinavia, and Switzerland. In plans and construction are France, England, Africa and Australia. The twins think very big.External Link – this is the official web site of Miniature Wonderland – come back and visit us at Doris VisitsPowered by GetYourGuide. Become a partner.
