The Ticino region offers a wide and interesting variety of family activities: many proposals that guarantee fun and entertainment for parents and children.
At Melide's Swissminiatur, you can visit Switzerland... in one hour. In a short time, enough for a walk in a blossoming park with over 1’500 plants, you can admire the Swiss Confederation's most representative monuments and places: castles, cathedrals, squares, rustic houses, railways, mountains and lakes. Everything rigorously rebuilt in a 1:25 scale. This outdoor museum offers, on a 14’000 square meter surface, over 120 miniature models and a dense railway network with 18 trains and 3’500 meters of tracks.
Let yourself be charmed by the fascinating world of birds of prey and watch, in an environment respectful of animals, the flight of eagles, falcons, owls, vultures, marabou storks, ibis and storks. By way of flight demonstrations, the Locarno Falconry offers to visitors of all ages a moment of recreation and training, fun and learning about the biology and ecology of this incredible animal world.
In addition to rock climbing itineraries, suitable for all ages, the entertainment area called “Tamaro Park” includes many other attractions: a Tyrolean traverse of 400 meters allowing you to reach a speed of 60 km/h, a sledge slide and the Tamaro jumping – a jump into the void with an elastic tied to your feet. For those who love water, the adventure can continue on the slides of the water park “Splah & Spa”.
