Werner Balsterholdt passed this YouTube video on for us to enjoy. Thanks Werner !
Miniatur Wunderland is the world’s largest model railway and a unique model world in its richness
of details and precision.
It was rated Germany’s most popular tourist attraction in a vote hosted
by the German National Tourism Board and is located at the Elbe in a
historic warehouse, close to Elbphilharmonie.
The official video is only showing parts of a model world you have to
see with your own eyes.
On a huge area of more than 16,145 sq.ft. and in nine
different sections, there are more than 1,000 trains and 250
automatically controlled cars moving. More than 40 aircraft take off and
land about 250 times a day at Knuffingen Airport, the world’s largest
model airport. In Scandinavia, in a basin with 7900+ gallons of real
water, ships are covering their routes.
An outstanding model building masterpiece and an amazing experience for
all ages that no words or films can properly describe.
