Oh, to be the powerhouse of Europe! The Greeks are digging out drachmas from behind the sofa. The Irish are crying in their Guinness. And the Germans? They've just spent €3.5 million building the world's largest miniature airport.
Based on Hamburg's Fuhlsbüttel International airport, Knuffingen Airport forms the centrepiece of Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg, Germany. The 494-square feet display includes 40 planes, 40,000 lights, 15,000 figurines, 500 cars, 10,000 trees, 50 trains, 1000 wagons, 100 signals, 200 switches and 300 buildings.
Approaches by RyanAir to use the airport as their European base to minimise costs have reportedly been rebuffed.
