Minatur Wunderland in Hamburg!

The Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg is one very interesting place. It is nominally a very very large train set with some very detailed models, but in reality it's much more.

Of particular interest to airplane people would be the Knuffingen Airport display, which I understand it loosely based on Hamburg airport. Of course the aircraft move, but also many of the vehicles, aircraft tugs, terminal gates and more! very, very flash!

What follows are a few of the pictures and video I took while visiting. Keep in mind that this is only a small part of the whole model setup, which will keep you occupied for several hours [possibly the best 13 euro you'll spend in Hamburg! :-)].

See the Air Chathams aircraft???

Holding for departure

Arrivals and departures board.... note the top one

Yes, they both "flew" in and taxied to their stands!

Moving by itself!

You might have to go and visit! It's a fantastic place to visit and these picture just don't do it justice.
