Miniatur Wunderland: A creative and technical masterpiece in miniature format

Since 2001, this family-friendly attraction in the heart of Hamburg has been captivating young and old alike.
The largest model railroad layout in the world today consists of 9 themed areas. Guests can take a look at scenes and landscapes in Hamburg, but also in other areas of Central-Germany, Austria, USA, Scandinavia, Switzerland or in a funfair. In addition, the fictitious town of Knuffingen with its airport is also a highlight due to innovative model building technology. The interactively designed exhibition has various buttons that trigger certain functions, such as some music, moving windmills, lights or movements. The dioramas also have a day/night cycle with different scenarios.

Guided tours for families and children groups through the Miniatur Wunderland

There are also tours behind the scenes, the maximum group size is 6 people. The Miniatur Wunderland staff explains the construction of the models and the technology that allows, for example, the cars to drive and the planes to take off. A special tour for children between 7 and 12 years old is also offered. Children can be picked up at the control room at the end of the tour.

The tours last one hour each and provide deep insight into the operations of Miniatur Wunderland. These should be reserved well in advance due to the limitation of group size.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long should I plan to spend at Miniatur Wunderland?

Most visitors spend about three hours exploring Miniatur Wunderland, but it depends on your level of interest. Some people spend almost a full day inside the attraction spotting all the details and marveling at the intricate design and mechanical and technological innovations. Read more.

Is Miniatur Wunderland accessible for disabled visitors?

In general, the exhibits are accessible to disabled visitors. However, in practice, the crowds mean that it isn’t easy for visitors in wheelchairs or who can be overwhelmed by large numbers of people to visit. Miniatur Wunderland asks visitors without disabilities to leave the attraction at 6 pm on Monday evenings so that there are two hours where visitors in wheelchairs and with other special requirements can easily visit the exhibition. There is a wheelchair lift which may not accommodate extra-long or extra-wide wheelchairs, and the maximum weight carried is 300 kg, which may cause problems for heavier electric wheelchairs. If you want to visit outside of Wheelchair Mondays, then it’s advised that you email Miniatur Wunderland so that someone can be on-hand to help operate the lift. If you have any other questions about accessibility then contact Miniatur Wunderland for more information. Read more.

Is there anything to eat on site?

There’s a restaurant inside the attraction, plus a bistro in the waiting area where you can try small snacks including Currywurst! The restaurant also has a play area for children and offers special children’s portions. All the food and drink on-site is reasonably priced. You can also bring your own food and drink, and the management is happy for you to bring a picnic and eat it in the restaurant without buying anything. Read more.

Are there guided tours?

There are guided tours that take you behind the scenes of the models. Tours are only available for up to 6 people at a time, so you’re sure to have an exclusive experience. The guides will tell you all about the process of building a model, including some of the technology developed to make cars run smoothly and airplanes fly. There’s also a special guided tour only for visitors aged 7 to 12. All tours take an hour, and are well worth the extra cost! They should also be reserved well in advance, as places on the small group tours sell out early. Read more.

Are the exhibitions interactive?

Some of them are! Watch out for buttons around the exhibition which trigger special features including playing a song, moving windmills, turning on lights, or starting small scenes. The exhibits also have a day and night cycle and the scenes change quite dramatically, so make sure to see each of the displays both in the daytime and the nighttime. Read more.
