I can only agree with the rave reviews. Seeing the promotional video only gives you a taste for what the visit is really like, which is jaw dropping. Beware, the place is full of children aged 40, 50, 60 and up :-)

This place is worth a visit at Hamburg. It is amazing how they could create several miniature areas with cars, planes, people , furniture etc all accurately scaled. It would have even been better were it not so crowded making it at times difficult to get a close view at the time you want it. You can literally spend an... More

Decided to go due to a recommendation from a german colleague, born in Hamburg. Decided to go and spend a couple of hours. Location is very good, accessible via metro and walking. Initial impression is not too nice, since it's located in a refurbished barrack, first rooms visited are not very nice; but everything changes when visitor reaches top floors,... More

I went here on advice from a local, half expecting a naff lego style exhibition. It was extremely impressive, I really was not expecting anything quite like it. I won't spoil it all here but its a must for families or people open to their inner child.

The exhibition is great, you can easily spend 3-4 hours in there if you want to take in all the details. Top tip: Book beforehand, i was there on a saturday and had to wait 35 minutes to get inside. Although the waiting room does provide free soft drinks and WiFi. It was still really crowded in there, so crowded... More

If you like small miniature trains, or want to see the Alps in miniature this is the place to be. However in my opinion the airport with simulated take-off and landings of the plane models is just amazing, even the "arrival / departure" screen shows exactly when an plane arrives / leaves through the "sky wall" and for sure it...

This is the 3rd time I have visited the Hamburg's Miniatur Wunderland and on every occasion I am amazed with the additions over time. Along with other Australians (some 18000) who have visited this wonderful site finds pleasure in Model Railroading at it's best. Their onsite International airport is simply amazing and the mechanics around the construction of the airport... More

Let me preface this by saying that my husband, a model railroader, has wanted to visit this place for 5 years. We finally made the trek from the US and I was really worried because when you build something up in your mind, there's a huge risk of it not living up to your expectations. This place not only lived... More

This is really an amazing place, if you like miniature scenes. There are so many different displays, each so well crafted. They each have a button to push to see something put into motion. It could easily take a couple of hours to see it - much more if you really want to see every display in action. Don't miss... More
