We both enjoyed visiting Swissminiatur - the attention to detail was outstanding. Sadly there were staff (three to be exact) mowing the grass - not ideal when visitors were there. We had a mouthful of grass due to it floating in the air and it...More

This is a nice place to go with kids or if you just want to see an overview of all of the Swiss points of interest in miniature. It’s well done. I recommend lunch and a swim at Baja. Perfect family day out.

Not too busy, nicely representing Suisse. A shame there wasn’t a bit more information on all the buildings. As a non Suisse family we were not really in the loop what the buildings were representing

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.
