A Visit to Swiss Miniatur Melide Ticino


The Swiss Miniature is an open-air facility located in Melide in Ticino and shows the scaled buildings and landscapes of Switzerland.

Swissminiatur showcases over 130 models of mansions, churches, castles, monuments and other interesting buildings of Switzerland in 1:25 scale and detail. The exhibition is constantly updated and changed slightly. In addition there are around 3.5 kilometers of track with 18 trains, gear and cable cars and lifts and ships. This park is therefore also a paradise for model train fans. Surrounded by 15,000 flower species and more than 1,500 trees. So you can explore and enjoy the hole of Switzerland in one location. In addition to a children park area also offers a self-service restaurant and a gift shop. Every year, Swiss Miniature is attended by around 200,000 people.

Swiss Miniature is easily accessible in various ways. The park is located on both the Gotthard line as well as on the A2 motorway, 5 km south of Lugano, Switzerland on the Melide causeway.
