ABC's of Hamburg

Miniatur wunderland

15.4.16

A Museum I recommend you to go to when visiting Hamburg is "Miniature Wonderland." It is basically a huge exhibition showing miniature copies of the USA, different parts of Germany, and Europe including the Alps, Scandinavia, and a new section of Italy which is almost ready! 
When I celebrated my first birthday in Germany we were going to go to the zoo, but since it was winter many of the animals weren't going to be outside, so we opted for visiting Miniature wonderland instead. We showed up and it turned out you have to book tickets ahead of time to visit during a certain time frame. so we ended up waiting there until it was finally time to let us go inside.

The first thing we saw when we came inside was a timeline showing us the history of this place, from it's first moments to today. 
The next exhibition is Germany's history; you can also see a timeline of Berlin before-during-after WWII. 
We went to Miniatur Wunderland for a second time this past February when Pablo's brother was visiting for a weekend. While the same exhibitions are still there, they've added new ones! They had a display of Helene Fischer in the making, where we can help them fill up the stadium by purchasing a mini version of yourself!
Miniatur Wunderland is a magnet for model train enthusiasts and people of all ages, it is more than likely going to be crowded no matter when you visit. Good thing they have extended hours during summer!
After you're there for a while you will notice the lights starting to dim, what's going on!? oh wow, it's night time! They have it set up pretty cool, you get to see all of the areas in daytime and nighttime! 

There is also an airport in miniature form with planes taking off and landing.
After spending the last two hours touring the place and taking many pictures, we started to get hungry, so we stopped by their restaurant and bought ourselves a currywurst with fries.
