This is Switzerland in miniature, where you can see all the famous sights of Switzerland in one go!  Children will love this area as there is also a few amusements rides and a miniature train that children (and adults) can go on for a tour round the park.  You need to buy tokens from the machine to pay for the train/amusement rides.

There is also a restaurant and a gift shop.  Nearby there is a playpark with a large grass area where you could sit and have a picnic on a nice day.

There are often events held at the park, for further info on this go to www.swissminiatur.ch
