This is incredible! You do not even need to like trains to appreciate the work that went in to building this and the detail ids phenomonal. This is EXCELLENT for small kids. They have some world cities and well-known places reproduced with incredible detail. The Hamburg airport with planes taking off and landing, fires, car accident, cruise ship going to... More

Plan to spend an entire day here if you can manage it. Try to arrive early in the day (may be helpful to pre-book tickets) to miss the worst of the crowds, preferably on a weekday. This attraction is not at all limited to model railway enthusiasts. My husband had been here three times before but there is always something... More

My young children, 7 and 3, very much enjoyed seeing this, the largest model train exhibit in the world. However, while my wife and I coudl have stayed and enjoyed the models for a couple more hours, my 3 year old in particular was bored in an hour in a half.

When we visited last year, I was not expecting much. I am not a fan of model trains, planes, or boats. However, this was fantastic! The amount of detail in the model cities is incredible, from the Lindt chocolate factory that actually dispenses real chocolate, to the insane airport completely with take-offs and landings (ooh look, there are people in...

Nice attraction in Hamburg. If you think twice because you don't want to spend money, better realise it's not easy to see one of those exhibitions somewhere else. Nice for kids, but adults Have a better understanding of all the details, creativity and work involved. You should go there. you can book online or check wether they previewto be a... More

Looking at the 1 star reviews for this attraction I can see how you might get annoyed. It is a bit weird how you are immediately put into a room with 20 or so others and spoken to in just German (this is a key attraction so surely someone could also speak english?). They basically tell you (it was a... More

Don't come when you are in a rush from your sightseeing schedule, cos you really want to take your time to enjoy everything. It's huge, it's impressive, it's a joyful ride from section to another. The design, the thoughts behind it, the incredible details! (My husband and I childishly challenged each other, how many 'couples in action' we could find!... More

I have waited a long time to visit this attraction, read about it watched DVDs looked at photographs, but nothing compares with the real thing. It is an immensely popular attraction so it can get crowded, but even as a short person I found no difficulty in viewing the content with ease. We spent approximately 6 hours there, and that...

If you are looking for something special on a visit, go to Miniatur Wunderland. Churches, bridges and others things can be visited in other cities too, but this is only in Hamburg. I've been there four times and everytime I saw new details.

It was difficult to leave the Miniatur Wunderland as there was so much to see, and so much we wanted to see again. The building of this attraction is an incredible achievement, worth going to Hamburg for.
