The Matterhorn

With 5.982 mm of height, the Matterhorn literally is the biggest highlight of the Switzerland section.

Roughly a ton of plaster is needed to build the Matterhorn alone. Underneath the layer of plaster is a stable skeleton made from plywood and strength welded steel which also adds up to a few tons of weight.

The Matterhorn literally is the biggest highlight of Switzerland and forms the center of this section. The 5.982 mm high mountain is made from oodles of steel and about a ton of plaster. It comprises an accessible mining tunnel, in which - amongst others - the underground station Porta Alpina is located.

The summit of Wunderland's Matterhorn can be reached by cog railway, unlike the original. If you take a closer look, you might be able to see the lights of a hiking group up on the mountain ridge when darkness falls...
