Own world record broken: Now we are an even greater model railway in the world

Today, at 11.25 a.m. it finally happened: we broke our own world record! So far 12 kilometers are now 15.4 kilometers.

In a big ceremony with members of the press and visitors, Gerrit and Frederik have placed the last piece of track between Italy and Switzerland. This was overseen by Marco Frigatti, head judge of Guinness, who afterwards awarded the two brothers with the certificate for the world record.

The occasion for this event was the introduction of the new Guinness Book of World Records 2016, in which a beautiful double page has been dedicated to the Miniatur Wunderland. You can order copies, personally signed by Frederik and Gerrit, from today on in our online shop.

For Frederik and Gerrit a childhood dream has come true today. “Gerrit and I have already dreamt about being in the Guinness Book of World Records since we were children. That we are now being presented worldwide on a double page is an incredibly great feeling and I am very proud”, says Frederik Braun. Gerrit adds: “In the history of the Wunderland we have already broken one or the other record. It is so much fun to approach any challenge in a playful manner and then to create something that nobody else has achieved before. We shall tackle one or the other further challenge in the coming years.”

In any case it is clear: We will continue! After opening Italy next year, Monaco, England, France and further parts of the world shall follow. Enough time for us to establish many more world records.
