Mini Europe

by Berckmans Peter June. 24, 2017 781 views

Today went to MiniEurope in Brussels, it is a collection of buildings from across Europe. It opened in 1989 and is still going strong, but it is getting old and a litlebit wornout. Most of all I like the details they put in some of their models and on that I put the focus. The artists who make these must be so patience and are really craftsmen. Hope you like the photos.

Nice pictures!  At first glance, I didn't realize that these were small models.  It was only after I looked at them more carefully and read your post that I grasped what was actually in the photos.  I traveled to Brussels last summer but didn't get to see this attraction; thanks for sharing!

I wish I could take this pics for real but then  I need a hot air balloon or something for some of the shots. Mmmm..... Maybe. Thank you for the comments 😂

Love your perspectives on these models! Such amazing details you were able to highlight so well!

Thank you Jay for your kind comments. #8 I put in with the purpose of scale. The details on some of these are amazing, I have read that for the model in #6 ,24000 hours were needed. I hope the place will get a litlebit new wind under its wings. Always a pleasure to share.
