          ...and each one of them worth the time to visit...

          ...just been there two days ago. I've been on a guided tour behind the
          layout and the guide told about the future plans. They did start the
          construction of the next section themed Italy. Some of the planned
          places are shown as cardbord models like the Colosseum
          (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colosseum )
          Italy is planed to be finished in 2015 and the next section is planned
          to be France which now is planned to be finished in 2017. In summer
          2019 Great Britain should be completed. About that time the three
          flours in the current building should be completly filled. Then the
          idea is to build a bridge into another buildung on the other side of a
          small canal (about 80 ft). Then the ideas are for scenes from Africa,
          Asia and Australia.
