Maps Street View. For those looking to relive their childhood dreams of being a conductor of their own railway and playing with dollhouses. we have a Street View surprise for you:. Hamburg’s famed Miniatur Wunderland. the world’s largest model railway. has come to Google Maps. Boasting 13,000 meters of track and more than 200,000 tiny citizens. the museum includes tiny replicas of a variety of German provinces. famous places in America and even a fully-functioning airport!.


Maps Street View cameras have floated on gondolas in Venice. ridden on camels in theLiwa Desert. and soared on snowmobiles on Canadian slopes. But to capture the nooks and crannies in Miniatur Wunderland. we worked with our partner at Ubilabs to build an entirely new—and much smaller—device. Tiny cameras were mounted on tiny vehicles that were able to drive the roads and over the train tracks. weaving through the Wunderland’s little worlds to capture their hidden treasures.

Touring the marvels of Wunderland, you must first begin in its oldest section: Knuffingen. A fictional town situated squarely between the Alps and Harz. Become one of this tiny city’s 10,000 inhabitants: . Stop by the city’s rusticfarmer’s market, witness the local fire department spring into action when a building catches fire. And even see a plane lift off from Knuffingen’s airport.

See the bright lights in Las Vegas in Miniatur Wunderland                   Then it’s a (very) short hop over to the U.S. Where you can zoom through the valleys of the Grand Canyon, gambol down the strip in Las Vegas. Posted by Sven Tresp, Street View Program Manager
