In Hamburg, Germany there is the largest model railway in the world. It’s called the Miniature Wonderland and occupies an entire floor in a former warehouse in the district of Speicherstad. Sophisticated giant size yard is surrounded by quite realistic-looking city of Hamburg and other places of interest not only from Germany but from around the world.
You can see thousands of small people, Scouts on the streets. weddings or people on strike. Within minutes you walk through Finland, Hamburg, Germany, The Alps and Austria, Switzerland, Scandinavia or America. All Miniature Wonderland is divided into six sections (southern Germany, Hamburg, America, Switzerland, Scandinavia and the airport). In addition, France and Italy sections are in preparation and you can watch the modelers and technicians at work. Day and night is changing there in 20 minute intervals.
The whole world of Miniature Wonderland does not include only trains, but there are also computer-controlled running cars or a sailing ship. But the Miniature Wonderland is not just about transport but also about people. You can find here humans in almost every real situation, from work to entertainment.
