We had read about this park and imagined it to be similar to Cockington Green in Canberra.getting there was easy... A 30 minute train ride from bellinzona to melide and a 10 minute walk brought us to the swiss miniatur... Deceiving looks as one would expect perhaps an amusement park( atleast our kids thought so).
Every recreation in a 'mini' form, the details, the details, thed etails.... Snow capped mountains, the mini trains that chug around continuously, the people atthe station, the beautiful castles, churches, the cog wheel train, the cable car..... Absolutely marvellous..
A good insight into the various regions... Our plan to visit the castle at Thun fell through during our stay at Interlaken and seeing the mini version reinforced the disappointment!!!, the Thun castle should really be a part of the plan from Interlaken.
The additional attractions for the kids are the dashing cars, both onland and water based rides, the mini train etc..
Do wear your hats in summer though as towards mid march as its an open place and the sun can beoverbearing despite the chill in the air.
A nice kids playground right outside the park in a residential area and a sports bar....
All of us thoroughly enjoyed the swiss miniatur... An educational eperience for children 3 and above. Well maintained park..and friendly staff.... Seems to be the pride of Ticino...
