Hamburg Miniature Wonderland - Part 8 - Hamburg

This section of the Hamburg Miniature Wonderland models landmarks from the Wonderland's home city, Hamburg itself.

First there is a model of the impressive Hambury Hauptbahnhof


This is the home ground for Hamburg's football team.


If you take the U-Bahn to get to the Miniature Wonderland, this is the station where you get off.


This is probably the most colourful of the ferry boats which ply their trade up and down the Elbe. This is the landing at Landungsbruken close to St. Pauli Elbe tunnel.


The entrance to one of the many canals


A much compressed model of the warehouse section of the harbour in which the Miniature Wonderland is housed.


And here it is with a queue of customers waiting for it to open


St. Michaels Cathedral. The tower is open to the public. There is a lift if you don't fancy the stairs. The view from the top is very good, you can see the aircraft repair building at the airport.


A bicycle road race crosses the harbour bridge


Another view across Hamburg Hbf


I didn't realise when I took the photo above that the Wonderland had had another visitor earlier in the summer. He had been following a 1913 edition of Bradshaw's guide and the Wonderland made a model of him to commerate his visit. When I saw the subsequent TV programme I took a closer look at this photo and found that I had captured him in his flourescent yellow/green jacket clutching his red covered Bradshaw:


The modelling of the girder work in the Hbf is quite detailed


The night sequence had fallen again as I took another photo of the harbour bridge


And so we come to the end of the Hamburg section. Next is Scandinavia the fjord scene complete with giant water tanks and ships that pass in the night.
