A fast-paced tour of Germany’s Miniatur Wunderland model train exhibit

Take a fast-paced tour of nine tiny theme worlds and the incredible toy trains running on over 15 kilometers (9.3 miles) of tracks through them. This is Hamburg, Germany’s Miniatur Wunderland, which, as of 2011, is the largest model train exhibit in the world.

As of April 2017, 1,000 model trains have traveled over 10 million kilometers (6,213,712 miles) at Miniatur Wunderland—that’s around 250 times around the world. And the construction continues.
