Miniature "Wonderland" - is a wonderful example of how the hobby has grown into a profitable occupation. It was enough to spend 500 000 person-hours of work. A group of enthusiasts working to create a parallel reality since 2000, and today we see the results of their activities.
Twin brothers Frederick and Gerrit Braun wanted to surprise and impress people - and they succeeded fully. They built the longest railway in Europe. In miniature. The project started in 2000.
And in 2001 was born the first quarters of an amazing wonderland - Miniatur Wunderland.
To create this miracle took about 8 million euros. And yet - 700 kg of artificial grass, 4,000 tons of steel and 558,000 hours of painstaking work.
To date, "Wonderland" is divided into seven thematic parts, covering an area of more than 1 sq. M. m .: Switzerland Knuffingen, Austria, Harz, Hamburg, America, Scandinavia.
In this world, as in the present, there are concerts, celebrations take place accidents, strikes, and there are fires to put out that fire trucks come from all over the country's toy.
All objects - trains and cars - move like real.
