Little Big City Berlin tells the story of Germany’s capital city from the Middle Ages to modern day, using intricate replica models at a scale of 1:24. The miniature world is set up on two floors of the landmark TV tower building by Merlin Entertainments (the company behind Madame Tussauds and Legoland). From medieval farmsteads to the imperial age and the rise and fall of the Third Reich and the Berlin Wall, Little Big City Berlin presents big epochs in small scale.
The model city is interactive, with plenty of moving, turning, and flying pieces. Captivating special effects and beautifully crafted 3D interactive miniature sets bring the visitor closer to the city’s history than ever before. Creating Little Big City Berlin was a three-year process, with each building requiring 15-20 hours just to paint. More than 5,000 residents 'live' in Little Big City Berlin, adults and children in figurines ranging from 2 to 3 inches (5cm to 8cm) tall.
To reach Little Big City Berlin by public transit, take the S-Bahn or the U-Bahn to Alexanderplatzstation, which is only a couple minutes' walk from the attraction. Bus numbers 100, 200, M48, or TXL, and tram lines M4, M5, or M6 all stop at Spandauer Str. /Marienkirche station.
