This is a nice place to go with kids or if you just want to see an overview of all of the Swiss points of interest in miniature. It’s well done. I recommend lunch and a swim at Baja. Perfect family day out.

Not too busy, nicely representing Suisse. A shame there wasn’t a bit more information on all the buildings. As a non Suisse family we were not really in the loop what the buildings were representing

I did not see lockers however I am sure that the staff can find a place to safely keep your luggage while you visit. Have a nice trip.
