Miniature Park - Saxon Switzerland in Miniature, Dorf Wehlen
Impressions of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains ...This delightful park, covering an area of 8,000 square meters (86,111 square feet), lies at the foot of a former stone quarry and serves the purpose of an open-air museum. The miniature landscape of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains recreates the most famous rock and landscape formations in original Elbe sandstone. It is the only one of its kind in Europe. Self-propelled historic vehicles
(land, water and air craft) complete the scenery. Historic buildings have been reproduced in miniature, with great attention to detail. They give insight into the settlement and craftsmanship of people in the Saxon Switzerland in former times. The impressive landscaping throughout the park, along with the largest bonsai forest in Germany, makes it a unique miniature landscape. A 900-meter (0.56-mile) ride on the first German miniature mountain railway from the park entrance to a 10-meter raised vantage point is a must for all visitors. In addition to a diesel locomotive, a replica of the 7¼" gauge Saxon IV K steam locomotive in 1/4 scale is used. The railway can carry 16 passengers and might remind you of the Schwarzbach Valley Railway (Schwarzbachtalbahn). The miniature park features many other fun activities for the entire family, including the demonstration workshop, the creative workshop or the pond with remote-controlled model ships. Moreover, there is a gold washing plant and a cinema showing films about the Saxon-Bohemian Switzerland. The broad paths of the park are comfortably accessible for accompanied wheelchair users.
