Swissminiatur presents important Swiss buildings, monuments, and sites in miniature. Built in 1959, the mini open-air park sits on the shore of Lake Lugano in Switzerland's Italian-speaking region. Covering an area of 1.4 hectares (3.5 acres), over 120 models of Swiss sites are displayed at a scale of 1:25. The park features moving attractions, including a 3,560 m (11,680 ft) model railway with 18 miniature trains, several cable cars ascending mountains, boats on lakes, and moving cars on highways. The miniature buildings are interspersed throughout a green park that features 1,500 different species of plants and flowers.

It's a nice park with nice building's. Al the classic building's of Swiss can be found there. They keep everything clean and fresh. Some of the building's are being renovated but that's to be expected. It's an tourist attraction for all ages.
Visited this miniature park on a weekend and this place is lovely and got a chance to view many miniature castles and town halls and towers and mountains. Everyone visiting Switzerland must give this a visit as this will help us see many places that we normally cannot cover when on a trip :)
