Would you like to get an overview of the whole of Switzerland while spending time in one of its most beautiful regions? Then don't miss the Swissminiatur Park! It's a magical place and an absolute must for anyone holidaying in Ticino or Northern Italy.
Here in the open air you'll find Switzerland in miniature. The park is in Melide, a romantic village on the shores of Lake Lugano, surrounded by famous mountains such as Monte Generoso, Monte San Salvatore and Monte San Giorgio, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In an area measuring 14,000 square metres, visitors can admire over 120 man-made models of Switzerland's most famous buildings, monuments and modes of transport, all on a scale of 1:25. A 3560 m long model railway with 18 trains runs round the park, over bridges and through stations - and it's not only the children who love it! There are boats on the lakes, cars driving on the motorways and cable cars and funicular railways running up and down the mountains.
Can be reached from the hotel in 50 minutes by car.
Open April – October 9 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Address: Swissminiatur SA, 6815 Melide
