Apparently, Hamburg is where the idea of Hamburgers originated-THANK YOU Hamburg!
The city reminded us a lot of Copenhagen, similar architecture and weather. When we got to the city it was lunch time and I like to play around with the GPS to see what kind of restaurants come up when I search-"American." Surprisingly, there was a place called "Tex's Bar B Q" -my response, "yeah, right!"
Driving around town, we happened to pass the place and were a bit curious. It looked like a decent kid-friendly place and so, expectations lowered, we walked inside.
WOW! We didn't realize how much we were missing American Food until we skimmed the menu.
Fajitas, Burritos, Chicken Nuggets, Fries, Bar B Q (translation-ribs)...my o my...
We then took the kids to Miniaturwunderland. I really can't not even begin to describe this place. We took lots of pictures, but a place you would really have to visit to comprehend the MASSIVENESS and detail. It is the largest model railway in the WORLD? As if we hadn't seen enough model trains, etc in Strasburg, PA! Let me just say, Strasburg has NOTHING on MW! The kids enjoyed it at first, then Abby said, "No more trains, no more trains!" Carter cried when we left-what can I say the boy loves his trains.

|This was really cool, it had a real Pixar movie playing at the minature drive-in.|
|Hard to see here, but this was a little fairy village that Abby liked|
|The control center. They even had cameras mounted on some of the engines and you could see the view on these screens.|
|Carter smiling at the "America" Section.|
|There were many places like this in the floor, stairs,etc where you could see the trains recycling.|
