The Miniatur Wunderland Hamburg

iniatur Wunderland - Hamburg Landing Stages
The Miniatur Wunderland Hamburg - the world's largest model railway- was created with extreme attention to detail in more than 10 years on a floorspace of 13993 sq ft.

The Miniatur Wunderland is spread over two floors and is divided into sections, such as Austria, Hamburg and the coast, America, Scandinavia, Switzerland and Knuffingen Airport. The end of the extension is not in sight, as new sections, such as Italy, France and Benelux are already being planned.

An impressive control center with 46 computers controls 930 trains on 42,650 ft of track in H0 scale and up to 1000 moving vehicles. Besides the many details certainly the technical know-how and the enormous effort in the realization have to be mentioned. A technical highlight is the Car system that allows the cars to choose their own route in compliance with the traffic rules and the defined destination.

Apart from the stunning scenery, a day and night rhythm was installed. 300.000 lamps have to be controlled to switch every 15 minutes between day and night.

Up to now, more than 10 million visitors were impressed by the Miniatur Wunderland.
