Very satisfied to see all Switzerland in one place. There are a lot to see and we took a lot of nice pictures. Worth it to go there. It is in Melide. Transport is not a problem.

A very fun excursion. The park is much smaller than I imagined but we had a lovely hour or so wandering around. The models are incredible and attention to detail is superbe!

Even at -3 degrees the Swiss miniature is one of Switzerland most beautiful sites to encounter. I would recommend it in any season of the year.

We visited it on a sunny day in October. We paid 18 CHF for ticket per person, which i feel is too overpriced for what we get to see. You can see the miniature creations of most of Swiss tourist places and attractions.

The Swiss Miniature is always a good excursion if you are in Ticino. Great with kids to show some of our most historical buildings. Well situated close to the train station.

If the accept the Swiss Travel Pass, they would only offer a discount. I believe you would still have to pay to enter the park. Enjoy!
