Wall goes up around Amer­ica at minia­ture world in Ger­many

Cape Breton Post - - WORLD -

BER­LIN — A wall has ap­peared around the United States — at a pop­u­lar minia­ture world at­trac­tion in the Ger­man city of Ham­burg. Op­er­a­tors of the Miniatur Wun­der­land erected the wall com­plete with barbed wire this week, sep­a­rat­ing the U.S. dis­play from the rest of the world. The site is one of Ham­burg’s most pop­u­lar tourist at­trac­tions, fea­tur­ing a vast in­door model rail­way stretch­ing across two floors. Co-founder Ger­rit Braun said Thurs­day the idea for the wall arose af­ter staff dis­cussed whether the U.S. dis­play needed chang­ing to re­flect “cur­rent de­vel­op­ments.”
