The world's largest model railway layout, Miniatur Wunderland consists of 12,000 m (39,000 ft) of tracks built in HO scale (1:87). This awe-inspiring exhibit is divided into seven sections with over nearly 900 trains, 11,000 carriages, 300,000 lights, 215,000 trees, and 200,000 human figurines. The layout includes huge panoramas of the Alps, the American West, Switzerland, Hamburg, and the fictitious city of Knuffingen. The latter features its own airport, with planes capable of taxiing and even flying. Originally started in 2000 by brothers Gerrit and Frederik Braun, this project is continuously expanding. It's expected to reach its final construction phase in 2020. Save time by booking your tickets online. Call the site in advance to arrange a behind-the-scenes tour.

  • I really enjoyed visiting this place and seeing the model locations and trains. . The details where amazing and fascinating. Had a really good time.. This is my boyfriends thing but this got my interested in this art form and even in the toilet they have miniature scenes in the walk.. would recommend this place for a visit
  • Amazing place to wonder. Never thought of such a complex operations of a small world. The interesting thing is the whole control room is visible to public where they can see how the trains and other vehicles are operated around the world. The airport and autonomous vehicles on airport are super amazing to watch. I wonder how much effort and iterations it would have taken to make that airport operations flawless.
