Brace yourself for perhaps the cutest views ever to appear on Street View. Google has scaled down its hardware to capture Hamburg’s Miniatur Wunderland—the world’s largest model railway.

There’s certainly a lot to explore: a fictional town situated between the Alps and Harz; a recreation of Hamburg itself, complete with soccer matches and Oktoberfest celebrations; even a condensed take on the US, including the Grand Canyon and a Las Vegas strip. Go take a look.
It’s all captured from the point-of-view of vehicles traveling through it, so the scenes look disturbingly real, like this:
