We all know how amazing Google Street View is. You can explore the streets of our worlds from your PC with a full spherical view. Google didn’t stopped with streets, the also give you an inside look of an A380 plane, a tour of Machu Picchu, a dive at the Great Barrier Reef, and the inside of fictional places like the TARDIS from the TV show “Doctor Who”.

Google’s amazing collection of Street Views can be found here.

The newest coup brings you into a world within our world – The Miniatur Wunderland Hamburg. This is the world largest model railway and it is located in the warehouse district of Hamburg, Germany.

The Wunderland hosts more than 13 KM of railroad and 900 trains with thousands of waggons travel several hundred kilometers every day. Google worked with the German map specialist Ubilabs to capture everything the exhibit has to offer with a new and much smaller camera. The camera got attached to trains and cars to capture remarkable scenes.

The Miniatur Wunderland is still growing and plans to add scenes of France and England to it’s already existing sections of Germany, Austria, Swiss, Scandinavia, Amerika and the fictional town “Knuffingen”.

This “mini” attractions gets around one million visitors per year, so if you are visiting Hamburg, consider to stop by and explore this amazing world. Watch the video below to see some of the highlights. See the passion and effort, which got put into this project in every little detail. More than 200.000 citizens live in this mini world and a day there lasts about 15 minutes.

As an active Google Local Guide I use Google Maps a lot and like what it offers to its users.
