Miniatur Wunderland

In Hamburg this summer we visited the famous Miniatur Wunderland. It is the world's largest model railway with hundreds of thousands of figures, thousands of moving trains, planes, boats, and automobiles.

Computer controlled lighting turns the Wunderland to night every 15 minutes. There is a lot of attention to detail and many comical items to be found as well as many buttons for visitors to start actions in different scenes.

A short clip of some of the models in action
