Goodbye, CCH

The CCH is being stripped down and renovated right after the event ends, so I decided to take a few pictures and capture the feeling on the last night of 33c3.

For those of you who have been there: I hope you enjoy the memories.

For those who haven’t: Yes, it’s really that tacky. But in a good way ;)

See you in a bit.

I tried to make sure everyone is blurred enough for the pictures to work with the photography/consent policies. Should you find yourself in a picture you’re not comfortable with please let me know.

After visiting Hamburg several times, I finally managed to actually go and explore the city for a bit. Considering that I had missed several chances to see Miniaturwunderland already, that’s where we decided to go first.

*tschu tschu*

Anyways. I had not really planned to take any pictures, but I happened to have my Olympus OM-D with an 60mm lens with me. So I started randomly snapping some photos when we were waiting for people to move out of the way, as this seemed to be just the right setup. And now everyone wants pictures, so here you go.

2015, I posted full-size Las Vegas for new years, this year it’s the tiny clone …

The museum actually has a day/night cycle. For every cycle, you get something like 20 minutes of day, and then there are 5 minutes of night. They even come with dusk and dawn in several different colours. I didn’t change the order of the pictures much from how they appear at the museum, so you can see that we spent a bunch of mini-days in there :P

Fun fact: I have already visited almost all the life sized versions of mini-US but none of the places shown in tiny Switzerland.

It’s a really nice little museum, but if you haven’t been there, be warned. You need to reserve a ticket/time slot online in advance unless you want to wait forever to get in. It’s also absurdly crowded. We got in around 18:30 and left at 23:00, and that was pretty much okay (Yeah. Take your time for this one). For the first hour or so it was impossible to move or get anywhere, and only when it got too late for all the children the place cleared out somewhat. In case you don’t like crowds, better go there laaaate.

Flashing lights everywhere, even on tiny police people riding tiny police bikes.

Hamburg at night.

I don’t know why, but I really like this picture.

Fire …

And a tiny circus. They also added an impressive number of christmas trees.

It is quite amazing how many different landscapes there are, and all the little details are lovely. We even stumbled upon a tiny CCCamp (At least we thought we did – Fairy Dust was nowhere to be found. But it was a festival and they had all the computers on the camping grounds).

I love how all the snow is not quite white, just like in the full-sized version.

And the same train station at night.

More tunnels.

Snow-wise, this version of Austria does so much better than the one I’m sitting in right now …

There are way too many pictures in this post, sorry for that. But you want to see Italy too, right?

I don’t think this is Italy yet.

Still not Italy.

Construction site.

This is Italy, I think.

And this is the cutest little train station in the whole museum.
