Time Out says

Is that a siren in the air? Oh no, a building is on fire! Here come the fire trucks… a tragedy in Miniatur Wunderland unfolds. In this exhibit, which draws 1.3 million visitors a year, a tiny world is spread out over 1,350 square feet. For more than 16 years, the minds behind Miniatur Wunderland have been building an international journey that goes from America to Germany, Scandinavia, Austria, and now Italy (which opened in 2016). The exhibit is home to the world’s largest model train display (50,000 feet) as well as 385,000 LEDs which glow when the world switches from day to night—this happens every 15 minutes. Don’t miss the journey through history on the entrance floor; while the audio headsets are only in German, English subtitles are visible on the screens inside displays. Tickets are reasonably priced, and there are discounts for children, those with disabilities and senior citizens. Book them in advance through the online reservation system to skip the wait.
