The highlights of Switzerland in one place

How nice would it be to walk hundreds of kilometres through Switzerland in one hour! You can do this at Smilestones.

For both adults and children, the modern complex of the Smilestones Miniature World shows some of the most well-known tourist destinations in Switzerland, such as the Alpstein region, the Bernese Oberland, the Rhine Falls and many more. The modelled landscape resembles a three-dimensional hidden object and offers a variety of little scenes and fun details to be discovered.

Not for nothing has Smilestones been presented with the Traveller’s Choice Award for the fourth year running.

    Lovingly designed with attention to detail

    Lovingly designed with attention to detail I went to the Miniature World twice, once with my grandchildren and once with my partner. We all marvelled enthusiastically at the meticulously recreated landscapes in miniature. Unbelievable, how much love has been put into designing the buildings – every detail is correct. What the creators of this exhibition have achieved is admirable.

    Just indescribably interesting

    I can only recommend Smilestones. I was there with a group, including a guided tour. A fun tour packed with lots of information. Plan enough time to be able to see everything, there’s a lot to discover in Smilestones. I would go there by myself again. Highly recommended.

    Very nice complex

    The complex has been built with great attention to detail. Scanning the QR codes gives you a lot of interesting information on the exhibition. Hopefully the complex will soon be extended to include the topic of Grisons.
