Swiss Miniature's Season opening today!

Swissminiatur was opened in the town of Melide in 1959. The area for the realization of the project was chosen in first instance for the beauty of its landscape choreography and for its climate.

Since the beginning, their aim was to synthesize, symbolize and summarize Switzerland.

Inside you will find more than 120 models representing the patrician houses, the castles, the cathedrals and other buildings of Switzerland. The fans of the railways-models will discover more than 3500 m of rails with no less than 18 trains, funiculars, rack-railways, cable-cars and boats in motion. All the models of the exhibition are built on the scale of 1:25.

Swiss Miniature is in the vicinity of Lugano and set alongside the shore of the lake Ceresio, surrounded by mountains such as Monte Generoso and Monte San Salvatore and most definately worth a visit. Not only the kids will enjoy this excursion, I can assure you there is a whole load of facts to discover for the adults as well.
