"Nobody does it better" - that's what we demand of our models nowadays, both in terms of quality and attention to detail.
What started on a small scale in 1958 has now been elevated to the art of perfection, as demonstrated in the 170 models on display of the most beautiful buildings from all five continents.
At the heart of our enterprise are the people working in our own model workshop. All of them expert model makers, they construct new models and are also responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of existing ones Even though comparatively little maintenance is required for models made out of original materials, it's not difficult to imagine that the moving models demand somewhat more attention, particularly when you think that a railway engine in our park covers more than 5000 km in one season.
MINIMUNDUS has already become an Austrian "institution" - more than 15 million visitors have already enjoyed looking at our models. But the winds of change do not stop at MINIMUNDUS's door: new models are always being added, or old ones are replaced by new, thematic landscaping is being developed and a wealth of new ideas will be introduced in the near future.
The models are, however, only one aspect of MINIMUNDUS's success story: visitors also take pleasure in the well-kept grounds of the 26,000 m² site, particularly in the special landscaping and floral displays. Six green-fingered gardeners are kept more than busy taking care of them during the season. We are increasingly interested in presenting the models in an environment which "transports" visitors - in spirit at least - to the natural surroundings of the original building: parts of MINIMUNDUS have been turned into desert landscapes or tropical rain forest.
