We know that one of the passions of the Germans are toy trains and miniature recreation of places where these trains can move. This passion of the twin brothers, Frederik and Gerrit Braun, led to the recreation of miniature German towns and cities so extensive that it had to be housed in a former warehouse in the city of Hamburg, which was turned into a museum. This adventure began in 2001 with the recreation of the German cities of Harz and Knuffingen and also the Austrian Alps. In 2002 a miniature recreation of the city of Hamburg was added and in 2003 a small section titled America, with a recreation of the American city of Las Vegas. In 2005 they opened a new section representing Scandinavia, where the snow, forests and landscapes typical of the European peninsula were recreated. Finally, in 2007 a spectacular section recreating Switzerland with its typical houses in the mountains, tunnels, ski centers and other tourist attractions, were added. Upcoming attractions include an airport and regions of France and Italy. Besides trains, mountains, cities, houses, cars, planes and ships, visitors can also see a great operating system to perfection the different sections, and all because of advanced technology and a team of people.
