    Fantastic page! Thank you so much! I heard they are now rebuilding the set for The Hobbit and this time make it permanent so that it will stay afterwards. I will go there and see it one day :-)) I hope it all is not too much trouble for the locals!

    Pam, Now I have to make this on my must see list since I've already been to Rivendell (aka Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland).

    Hi Pam, I thought they had removed the set completely - really interesting that at least the hobbit caves & the party tree do still exist. Best regards - Michael

    Pretty cool that Hobbiton is still there. Did you fit inside, or is it just an outter shell?
