Miniatur Wunderland - 1

Miniatur Wunderland – a unique place in the world where in one room you can see several European countries in miniature. Live and stunningly detailed exposition hides a whole arsenal of technology. In 2000, the brothers Frederick and Gerrit Browns undertook a major project – the construction in Hamburg, of the world’s largest toy railroad. Nine years later Miniatur Wunderland is not just a railway but a whole world in miniature, covering an area of 1150 square meters. It includes more than 10 thousand locomotives and wagons, 700 trains, almost 1 thousand semaphores, 4 thousand vehicles, 160 thousand unique figures of people, as well as several ships.
