Miniatur Wunderland, Hamburg – 1

A start of a series of posts by EsngBlog looking at the world famous Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg


As hinted a few blogs ago, I’ll be taking a back seat over the next couple of weeks whilst I am away.  I’ll be posting (mainly) train photos taken by Allan in Switzerland, and pictures taken in Hamburg on his birthday visit to Miniatur Wunderland.  Its website describes it as:

The largest model railway in the world, and one of the most successful permanent exhibitions in Northern Germany.

The Miniatur Wunderland has been constantly growing since the year 2001. Having started with two layout areas, Harz and Southern Germany, the Wunderland has openend the seventh area, Switzerland, in November 2007. More layout areas have already been planned until the year 2014.

We have pursued the principle of open workshops since the beginning, which means that you can actually see our modellers and technicians working in the Wunderland and observe how landscapes emerge.

As your questions and comments are mostly answered…
