At first glance it may seem unbelievable
that some individual models cost more
than € 500,000 to build.
Have a look with us behind the scenes at how the models are created: First, contact is made with those responsible or the consulate to get hold of the relevant documents for the building. It usually takes a few months to get the right plans in various scales, which are then converted by us to a scale of 1:25.
The whole world on a scale of 1:25
The centrepieces at Minimundus are the models which are created down to the smallest detail on a scale of 1:25, and mostly using original materials such as sandstone, lava basalt or marble, in the Minimundus model workshops. Every detail is incorporated: window shutters, decorations, street lamps, etc.
Model building is carried out by our 6 Minimundus model builders in the on-site workshops, by higher technical colleges or by professional model builders around the world.
All models are built on a scale of 1:25 (exceptions are Hochosterwitz Castle, which was already built in 1959, and the passenger ship Queen Mary, which would have otherwise had a length of 12.40 m), and so the size of the models can easily be compared to one another.
