Miniatur Wunderland” in Hamburg, Germany boasts of 13,000 kilometers of track and more than 200,000 tiny citizens, featuring tiny replicas of German provinces, famous places in the U.S. and even a fully-functioning airport, which itself is the largest miniature airport in the world.

To capture the nooks and crannies in Miniatur Wunderland, Google mounted tiny cameras on top of tiny vehicles that were driven through the roads and over the train tracks, “weaving through the Wunderland’s little worlds to capture their hidden treasures,” wrote Sven Tresp, Street View Program Manager, in the official announcement.
