Behind the Scenes – 60 minutes

The guided tour begins at the control station (“Leitstand”). After a welcome by our guide, you will proceed directly to the USA section of our layout. Here, your guide will give you a brief introduction with interesting details about the Wunderland, before the tour starts. You will enter the backstage area of the USA section, where you will find one of our largest staging yards.

As in other sections as well, you will gain an insight on wiring, decoders, computers etc. here. Afterwards the tour stops over in Knuffingen, the most famous city in Wunderland. You will learn details and functionalities of our “intelligent” cars, the Carsystem, and we'll explain how the charging station works.

To round off the tour, we will enter the backstage area of Knuffingen Airport. We will walk along the backside of the runway to the area of the aircraft-lift, which links the runway level of the layout with the three lower staging and airplane exchange levels.

After 60 minutes, the tour will end at Castle Neuschwanstein.
