The "Miniatur Wunderland" exhibition, located in Hamburg, Germany, is the world's largest model railway.

If you've never seen it before, it's one of the cutest, most detailed miniature models you'll ever see in your life.

To bring new perspective to the massive model railway, Google in 2016 built a miniature version of its Street View car to capture footage within the Miniatur Wunderland with an array of tiny mounted cameras. You can actually see all the various worlds within the Miniatur Wunderland on Google Street View.

The results are stunning. Take a look:

Google worked with mapping software company Ubilabs to capture the sprawling model world. Google

The tiny Street View car couldn't actually film anything, which is why Google and Ubilabs built a fleet of mini camera-mounted devices to cruise the streets ... Google

... and railways of Miniatur Wunderland. Keep in mind, this model railway features over 8 miles of track. Google
