Before the 2009 election kicked off in Germany, Hamburg’s miniature railway museum - Miniatur Wonderland - gave the country's main political players the opportunity to create their very own model of a perfect Germany to show off the visions they had for their country’s future. Each party was given one square meter of space to create their own scale models of utopia. The exhibition was first held four years ago as an attempt to familiarize voters with political concepts ahead of the 2009 general election. Now as another election approaches in 2013, Miniatur Wonderland invited the six major political parties once again to create new utopias.

Working closely with model makers from Miniatur Wonderland, the six political parties  - Christian Democrats (CDU), Christian Social Union (CSU), Social Democrats (SPD), the Green Party, Free Democrats (FDP) and Left Party - created six pretty models that mirrored their own specific policies. The models will be shown in a special exhibition within the museum in Hamburg from Sept. 10 through to election day on Sept. 22. A total of 4,000 hours were invested into the project.
