  • Cute, pleasant, child friendly location. Place to have a small picnic on benches and kid playroom. Villages are amazing and we'll maintained. Worth a visit. Cafe on site; 1.50e for buns, 2.60e for muffin and 3.60e for cake.
  • Fun for small kids, and also families. The models built very detailed, good quality and recover of the places all around. The railways are constantly active, so the kids can follow each train, where it goes.
