The Miniatur Wonderland in Hamburg is one of the most popular places among tourists and this is also approved by many tourism associates in Germany.

Exhibiting the longest railway miniature inside, the Land is also well known nowadays for building a Wall which surrounds the United States in it.

The Wall, representing Donald Trump’s executive order suspending refugee admissions and banning travel to the US from seven Muslim-majority countries and also the border projected to be built between the USA and Mexico has drawn much attention from the visitors when it popped up last Friday at the Wonderland.

Miniatur Wunderland erected the wall complete with barbed wire this week, separating the U.S. display from the rest of the world.

“Let the World be great again” is ironically hand-written on the particular Wall and remined the election time propaganda of Trump “Make America Great Again”.

Miniatur Wonderland Co-founder Gerrit Braun said that the idea for the wall arose after their staff discussed whether “current developments.” Should be displayed.

Braun said the wall wasn’t meant to represent U.S. President Donald Trump’s promised concrete barrier along the border with Mexico. Instead, it was intended to encourage visitors to think about what happens “when we build ideological walls around our countries.”
