Fodor's Review

If you wish to see all of Switzerland's monuments in a few hours, then stop in the town of Melide, 8 km (5 miles) south of Lugano. The Swissminiatur has all the sights and sites you could wish for, including pint-sized versions of the Château de Chillon, Basel's Münster, and Locarno's Madonna del Sasso. Nearly 3.5 km (2 miles) of miniature tracks have been laid out and are busily used by tiny passenger and freight trains.
