It’s hard to describe Miniatur Wunderland without visiting it. While it’s a giant train exhibition, it really is so much more than that! It’s officially the largest model railway in the world – and it’s still expanding! On my first trip to Miniatur Wunderland, I budgeted 2 hours and ended up not leaving until closing time (close to 4 hours later). Even after 4 hours, I could have continued exploring the entire model railway.
If you’re worried that Miniatur Wunderland is too childish, fear not – I was shocked at how excited I got about seeing all the different worlds and pushing the various buttons (spoiler: in Switzerland, there’s a button for a chocolate factory that actually delivers a piece of Lindt chocolate!). As Miniatur Wunderland is quite large, it is a bit overwhelming on your first visit. Here are some tips for visiting Miniatur Wunderland and the best way to plan your visit there!
