About Miniatur Wunderland

Miniatur Wunderland is the world‘s largest model railway and Hamburg‘s tourist attraction no. 1. More than 18 million visitors from all over the world have already visited this superlative miniature world. Spreading over 1,499 square meters, a unique and outstanding exhibition arose in 923,000 working hours and it keeps on growing.

Next to sophisticated technologies, Wunderland is known for its captivating richness of detail: 263,000 figures lovingly set in scene, moving cars and ships – even airplanes are taking off and landing at Knuffingen Airport every minute. The Miniatur Wunderland is a breathtaking microcosm unmatched anywhere in this world.

Since 2001 the miniature cosmos has been built tirelessly. So far, you can travel through Central Germany, Switzerland and Austria, stroll through the fictitious city of Knuffingen and observe air traffic at the Knuffingen Airport hub, you can walk from miniature Hamburg to America and Scandinavia by foot, and it is also not far to Italy with the lagoon city of Venice.

With the bridge over the canal, for the first time a country of the southern hemisphere is to be opened up on the Wunderland world map: We’re heading to South America! Until the new section is opened in 2021, visitors can also look forward to further new worlds, such as a miniature fun fair of superlatives, the Principality of Monaco and idyllic Provence. These sections are to be completed by 2019 and 2020.
