Let's jump right inMiniatur Wunderland was the only reason for our traveling all the way to Hamburg and we had arranged to spend all day there if necessary. Our entry tickets were for 0830-0930 but we arrived at 0805 and were let in straight away. It was not busy at this time and we made our way straight to the top floor starting in USA and Scandinavia and working our way through Hamburg, Middle Germany, Knuffingem and Knuffingen Airport with a short break for a drink.
Dolphins swimming in the harborI had arranged for a behind the scenes tour in English for 1340 and by 1300 it became evident that we weren't going to be able to finish the top floor before the tour. We had a quick bite then took the tour. After this we finished Austria and Switzerland then descended to the 3rd floor for Switzderlnd, Italy and Venice.
After this we revisited Switzerland, had a cup of coffee and called it a day. We left around 1730.
The behind the scenes tour was given by Bernardette who spoke good English but who also knew the operation. She has worked there for may years and has participated in many projects. Putting people in passenger cars involves cutting off lots of legs and we joked about what you do with the legs.
