We made a trip to Hamburg and visited the exhibition of Miniatur Wunderland. This is the largest model reailworld in the world. Covering a florplan of more than 10.000 sqm and with a total model plan of more than 2.300 sqm – this is absolutely encredible.

Before you get in to the actual model plans they showcase some constructions where you can get a close look at all the details. Miniatur WunderlandAllready here you get the impresions of very serius model craftmanship.
