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 3½ km (2 miles) of miniature tracks have been laid out and are busily used by tiny passenger and freight trains.
