Miniatur Wunderland largest model railway / railroad in the world - VIDEO

The image video of Miniature Wunderland Hamburg , the largest model railway in the world and one of the most successful permanent exhibitions in Germany.

I am in awe, and now have to visit Germany just in search to see this exhibition!
One of the many reasons I love miniatures and you will love them to once you have seen this!!!

It's simply unbelievable. The Miniature Wunderland model railroad in Hamburg , Germany is the largest in the world, covering 16,146 square feet of space with more than 10,000 train cars running around its 6.8 miles of HO scale track. Now, the makers of this huge layout have created a video that gives you a jaw-dropping look at the vast scope of this intricate work of art.Its construction started in 2000, and is still underway, with a tiny airport due for completion by the end of this year. This is just the beginning — there are plans to double the layout by 2014. We especially like the Las Vegas portion, complete with dazzling LEDs lighting up the night.Watch the new video above to get the full impact of this remarkable achievement, which has taken in excess of 500,000 working hours to build. There's good reason why this is Germany 's most popular attraction, already visited by more than 5 million flabbergasted tourists

Hope you Enjoyed!!!!

  1. I haven't seen this video before, just shows how amazing the Minatur Wunderland railway actually is. 6.8 miles of track is truly amazing. I recently wrote an article about the railway too...

    Thanks for the information!
