Austria

Austria and its Alps are, besides Middle Germany and Knuffingen, one of the first three theme worlds of the Wunderland. On 60 m², the beautiful panorama of the Austrian Alps and all its details can be admired.

In a hollow underneath the Kitzstein lies the idyllic mountain village St. Niklas. The snow covered fir trees, buildings and streets create a holiday feeling.

The Alps in Austria may be not as tall as those in Switzerland, but they are much older. This section is one of the original sections of the Miniatur Wunderland and back in the year 2000, it presented a big challenge to the Wunderland team. On one hand, it was important to the Braun brothers (both coming from the flat land of northern Germany), that the “Hamburg Alps” had to be an authentic experience for people who really lived in the Alps, as well. On the other hand, they were meant to be educational for all the “fish head” people from the north.

Innumerable tons of plaster were applied in innumerable hours of work, sculpted with a chisel and later painted. To create authentic mountain life, many typical landmarks were added. In the Wunderland Alps, all four seasons mix and mingle. This is why there are winter athletes, climbers, hikers and wonderfully green mountain pastures right beside each other.
