Plan it early as it is much better when there is not too crowdy. Do not be in hurry downstairs where there are "history boxes" with video and listening stories. The place is still being expanded (they started to build miniature Rome now). Great and inexpensive food downstairs. The best in hamburg - a must for kids and teens. Great... More

It starts of interesting, but it is just lots of little buildings. Impressive at the start but By the end I was a bit bored of seeing little buildings. They are not copies of real places, which would be impressive, they are just little buildings with little people inspired by real places. The children there seemed to love it, so... More

I am not sure how many reviews you need to read to decide if Miniatur Wunderland is for you, but I would say, quit reading and just go! This place is a must for young and old alike! You will be there for hours as there are so many details in the miniatures that you are always discovering something new..... More

I walked into this thinking "right, okay" but what a display! Lights transition between night and day, there are buttons to press to see different things happen and make sure to look quickly, because there are several gems! The signs are in German, of course, so it's nice to have a basic understanding to know what you're looking for -... More

Well, I knew in advance that this would intrest me and my kids. My wife though she will go for a shopping tour instead, but came along anyway. And she was not disappointed...really nice. A full day was easy to fill. If you don't book in advance -count with a long waiting time. And parking can be a problem. We... More

This place is great, if you are in hamburg, you HAVE to go. If you don't have kids, I recommend you to go at night, it is cheaper and less crowded. They have a system, where they allow certain amount of people per hour, so it's best if u go, buy your ticket and go back later. Depending on the... More

A must in Hamburg for young and old. We spend hours and still haven't seen everything. We will be back when Italy is finished and on display.

He wasn't quiet sure what to expect but left pretty impressed! We managed it due to early arrival to walk threw within just a few hours but if you take your children... More

Miniatur Wunderland is an exceptional exhibit. Many tourists visit Hamburg just to see this exhibit. Across several halls the creators have replicated worldwide places in miniatur form that are also interactive. It will take a few hours to really take in this exhibit. After the exhibit take a stroll around Hafencity. The area Am Sandtorkai is especially interesting for it's... More

Imaginative and wonderful experience even for those who aren't miniature trains fans. Particularly enjoy the day and night scenery. Plan your time of visit carefully as it can be crowded. Paid cloakroom.
