More than the miniature world

Port of Rotterdam in miniature

Inspired by the Port of Rotterdam, one of the largest ports in world, we have built the largest port in miniature of Europe! Almost all types of terminals that are to be found in the Port of Rotterdam are built to scale in our miniature Port.

Coast & polder

Off course a typically Dutch coastal- and polderlandscape is a integral part of our miniature world. Here you see a busy Dutch beach, vast polders and Kinderdijk in miniature.

Just like in real life the watermanagement theme is a big part of ordinaty life in our miniature polder. You'll find numerous dikes, channels, canals, windmills, pumping station and locks

Dutch suburbia

The suburbs of Rotterdam, like for instance Schiedam, Vlaardingen, Capelle aan de IJssel, Hoogvliet en Spijkenisse all have been an inspiration for this extraordinarily busy bit of the miniature world.

In our suburbs the so called "Havenspoorlijn" (port railwayline) from our miniature Port merge with the main railwaytrack to our Rotterdam Central Station in miniature. In this town you also find a RET metroline and just outside of town is the High Speed Train (HSL).
