I visited Miniatur Wunderland, the world's largest model train layout, and then spent some time exploring downtown Hamburg before taking off for Berlin.
Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany, and has the country's largest seaport. It is also home to Miniatur Wunderland, the world's largest model train layout, an impressive site I highly recommend.
Miniatur Wunderland is the world's largest model train layout. Open some 17 hours a day, it is a very popular tourist attraction. With what they have done with it, it is no surprise; if you are within striking distance of Hamburg, visit Miniatur Wunderland.
Half way between Hamburg and Berlin is Wittenberge. The area is full of large wind farms.
This is what the world looks like riding the Germany's high speed ICE between Hamburg and Berlin.
One of the most storied cities I've visited, Berlin is the capital of the reunited Germany with many reminders of the Second World War and the Cold War everpresent in the city, a must-visit for any European traveler
