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.

  • 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.
  • Unique experience. Lovely setting, great attention to detail. Unfortunately, the food is terrible. Please offer more variety, especially vegetarian options!
