Knuffingen Airport

Knuffingen Airport, expanding over an area of 150 m² and featuring realistic air traffic, surely is the most fascinating section of Wunderland from a technical point of view. Making this dream of our technicians come true took us almost six years and cost 4,000,000 Euros.

Embedded between Knuffingen and Switzerland, Wunderland's eighth extension arose: a passenger airport. After almost six years of construction, it was inaugurated on May 4th 2011. The development of the airport started back in June 2005. In 2008, we completed the planning stage and worked out the final construction plan. On August 22, 2008, the plan was laid on the base frame of the new section, therewith officially initiating the construction phase right in front of our visitors' eyes.

The impressive airport is a highlight of Wunderland, not only for aviation and technology freaks. 45 different aircrafts, from A380 to Cessna, run self-dependently at the airport. Upon arriving at the gates, they are steered back by push-back vehicles and taxi to the runway by themselves. There, they accelerate and take off. Each aircraft is equipped with original lights and the turbines emit a realistic sound, at least during take-off. (Otherwise, the noise would be almost unbearable.)
