Swissminiatur presents important Swiss buildings, monuments, and sites in miniature. Built in 1959, the mini open-air park sits on the shore of Lake Lugano in Switzerland's Italian-speaking region. Covering an area of 1.4 hectares (3.5 acres), over 120 models of Swiss sites are displayed at a scale of 1:25. The park features moving attractions, including a 3,560 m (11,680 ft) model railway with 18 miniature trains, several cable cars ascending mountains, boats on lakes, and moving cars on highways. The miniature buildings are interspersed throughout a green park that features 1,500 different species of plants and flowers.

  • Pretty backdrop of the lake and San Salvatore enliven the miniatures. Some of the attention to detail is amazing and it is a nice collection of famous places around Switzerland. The kids loved the round boats in the arcade section. Good to visit if in the vicinity but not as the star attraction of the day. Easy access via train to Melide station.
  • Beautiful grounds replica of Swiss famous places with functions, great for the children and the parents. The location in Logano city outskirts is great advantage. Well enjoyed.
