Miniatur Wunderland OFFICIAL VIDEO – world’s largest model railway | railroad

August 14, 2019

The centre of Hamburg’s Speicherstadt district, a Unesco World Heritage Site, has been home to the Miniatur Wunderland since 2001 In 17 years and more than 800,000 hours of work… …on 1500 square metres a miniature world of superlatives was created that cost over 21 million euros to build. The most popular tourist attraction in Germany… …holder of the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest model railway. The Wunderland has been visited by more than 17 million globetrotters of all ages. A mind-blowing experience for all playful adventurers immersing themselves into a giant miniature world consisting of nine sections. The round-the-world trip at a scale of 1:87 starts in Italy, continues through Switzerland to Germany, Austria and Scandinavia and takes you all the way to America, and it keeps getting bigger. More than 1000 trains with more than 10,000 coaches cover several hundred kilometers every day. In the northern Baltic Sea, ships float on real water in a 30,000-litre water basin with simulated tides. The road traffic in America, at the airport, in Scandinavia and in Wunderland’s famous little town of Knuffingen is computer controlled. More than 250 moving cars react to each other in an intelligent simulation. The spectacular large-scale fire-fighting operations of the car system with up to 30 fire-fighting vehicles offer lots of action. According to the Guinness World Record, Knuffingen Airport is the largest miniature airport in the world featuring sophisticated technology down to the last detail. The complex flight simulation uses software to control more than 40 aircraft taking off and landing every minute. To date, more than 265,000 people live in the Wunderland. All facets of life are portrayed with loving attention to detail. Funeral speech or joyous celebration. The saintly and the not so saintly. Very lively people – and those no longer so lively… Some love to play with fire, and others make sure nothing gets burnt. The unlucky fellow or the lucky devil. The muscleman or the beanpole. Nudists, exhibitionists or tourists. Some reach for the stars and others are not of this world. Eat or be eaten. Lazybones or dreamer. Some go on a long trip, and others feel most comfortable at home. Blue light and red light. Superhero or strong girls. Knight of the Round Table or knights from another galaxy. Fairy tale characters, mythical creatures, cartoon figures or famous movie heroes. Some have their noses in books, others are given the runaround. On a journey from the highest mountain of six metres… across dreamy roads through the Grand Canyon… snow-covered landscapes… and idyllic villages, to secret underground bases, the miniature landscape is created with loving attention to detail. A day in Miniatur Wunderland is 15 minutes long. When night falls, everything is illuminated in dazzling light. Throughout the Wunderland, secret stories are brought to life. The 220 entertaining actions can be activated at the touch of a button along the edge For the sweet-toothed and chocoholics at the chocolate factory. Jumping dolphins. Rocking gondolas. Duelling gunslingers. Or when new life is created. The 350 Wunderlanders work day-in-day-out on new ideas, gimmicks and gadgetry. The world has so many stories to tell. The new sections Monaco and Provence in France will follow by 2020. Subsequently… South America. What comes next is written in the stars. But we will continue to build…

    We visited in August, the behind the scenes tour was great ( book ahead – they have them in English as well as German ).
    I stayed from 6pm until 1am when they closed and still did not see everything – thankfully nearly an hour of video and 500 photos!
    As a keen model railroader this place is unbelievable, but even my wife stayed 4 hours as the various scenes were so interesting.
    GO IF YOU CAN!!!!!!!!!!

    I love you guys and all your miniatures and videos and staff etc… but i have a minor issue with this video…for future videos like this please hire someone who speaks fluent English to work on the English script and voiceover. The errors & mis-pronounciations detracts attention from the awesome video/models.

    Gut, das Ergebnis für das englisch sprechende Publikum sollte nicht akzeptiert werden. Aber den Film finden wir klasse. Waren schon mehrfach dort und sind wiederum überrascht, von Szenen, die sich Werbefilm finden. Jedenfalls werden wir wiederkommen. Viele Grüße aus Süddeutschland an das tolle Team.

    Wow!!!! Everything possible is animated ! Is there anything on Britain perhaps our new HS2 route and other things ? Btw how do you keep the track all clean and exhibits ? It's scary how dusty and dirty they get with the track on my garage house layout , and that wiring underneath the display is FAR TOOOO complicated to workout to change a bulb from the last 17 years tech 😁

  • Reply Neil Willoughby November 21, 2018 at 12:15 am

    I was there in mid October with my wife. We had traveled around Europe before coming to Miniatur Wonderland and it was great to see the places we had been to, presented on the layout. Will there be a area for the southern hemisphere? IE: New Zealand or Australia. As we are from New Zealand Miniatur Wunderland was on our bucket list and has now been checked off. I have have to find an excuse to travel another 24 plus hours to come back again. Most impressive.

    Dieser wunderbare Film leidet sehr unter dem Sprecher. Bitte nochmal Geld in die Hand nehmen und mit einem anderen Sprecher aufnehmen, damit der Trailer dem echten MiWuLa gerecht wird.

  • Reply Da T November 22, 2018 at 4:18 pm

    Nicht wundern, wenn der Trailer nicht die Resonanz bringt, die man sich erhofft. Schaut es euch nochmal an, das ist wirklich eher mittelprächtig geworden.

    I understand when someone thinks of America as a rocky sandy and just not very green. There is actually a large diversity. Parts of the United States had the same climate as Germany, Switzerland, Austria and so on.
