Wunderland!! 


Miniatur Wunderland, Hamburg The world’s largest Model railway is a tourist attraction, and the highlight for me in my trip to Germany.

Can you imagine a tiny real world, from cities around the world, giving the same feeling of the actual cities.

Last vegas,Night effect would give you the feeling of standing on “the strip” and watching the lighting .

The flight taking off,With the sound effect of the engine and the movement of the airplane going on the runaway ready to take off, would only give you the sense and feeling as if you were there at the airport witnessing the action,These airplanes models had the branding of lufthansa,airberlin ,Emirates and many more airlines on them.The most amazing experience of witnessing the real world around the globe in a tiny space.
