wife booked this for our son, and thought OK, going to be some model railway going around, but was i surprised, this is huge. It was busy, being a Sunday afternoon, but so much to look at. The time and effort of the team here is amazing, the detail with every little model man or woman, the dead body in... More

It's hard to imagine anyone not enjoying this experience. The number of people is managed but earlier may be quieter. Interesting, entertaining and informative (the history displays are fascinating). Recommended.

Look this is one of those places where you love it or hate it. I loved it. I thought it was cool and a lot of fun. I've never seen anything like it. It's art and there is art in miniature form there. There is a bit of stuff dedicated to the holocaust which is an interesting take on that... More

It is so well done with details of everything in miniature form. The alpine countries are displayed PLUS part of Italy and USA and the Scandinavian countries. Fun stuff to see: The CONCORDE. LOok out for sone naughty hidden tips and at the entrance there is like a tip card to look out for hidden clues.

This was very cool place. So cool I ran my camera batteries down. I spent several hours here and could have stayed longer.

Wonderful attraction for all, young and old. We made a reservation online weeks ahead of our planned visit, which worked out great, as we didn't have to wait in line to enter. We spent 3 hours at the museum -- just about enough time for us (our son is 9 years old). The museum keeps expanding. They are working on... More

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
