The World’s Largest Model Railway Added Google Maps and Street View Using Tiny Camera Mounted on Tiny Vehicles

Google announced that it has added the world’s largest model railway, Miniatur Wunderland located in Hamburg, Germany, to Google Maps and Street View, allowing users to virtually explore the miniature world. Google used tiny cameras attached to tiny vehicles to to image the minute city.

For those looking to relive their childhood dreams of being a conductor of their own railway and playing with dollhouses, we have a Street View surprise for you: Hamburg’s famed Miniatur Wunderland, the world’s largest model railway, has come to Google Maps. Boasting 13,000 meters of track and more than 200,000 tiny citizens, the museum includes tiny replicas of a variety of German provinces, famous places in America and even a fully-functioning airport!

We previously covered Miniatur Wunderland in 2009, but back then it would have been impossible to delve into the stunning detail available.
