Minimundus Klagenfurt

Minimundus is a park of miniature buildings in Klagenfurt, Austria. These miniatures are 1:25 miniaturized versions of famous buildings and tourist attractions in Austria and around the world. With more than 150 miniature architectural models, you can feel like you have traveled the world at the end of your visit to Minimundus.

Located 700 meters away from Wörthersee, one of the largest and most vibrant lakes in the region, Minimundus was opened in 1958. When it was opened, the park was named Minieurop and there were only 20 model buildings at that time. The name of the park was changed to Minimundus, which I guess is a name for children, when a British representative provided financial support to the park, which provides aid to children. In the following years, a separate park was opened in Brussels with a name similar to its old name, Mini Europe. As a result, miniature parks are very popular. Minimundus is one of the most popular attractions in Klagenfurt. Of course, you don’t need to go all the way there to see a miniature park. Istanbul Miniatürk is one of the miniature parks with the same quality.
