Small, unique and breathtakingly beautiful, that's our Switzerland. But these attributes also apply to Smilestones. In the immediate vicinity of the largest waterfall in Europe, the Rhine Falls, the largest indoor miniature world in the country is being built on an area of seven tennis courts.
After the sensational opening of the first section in November 2018, Smilestones continues its journey, devoting itself fully to something that Switzerland has to offer: the mountains.
By autumn 2019, the second section which will take us from the lowand to alpine regions, will open. Over the Bernese Alps in the summer season, the contemplative journey continues into the beautiful ski resort of the Grisons Alps. Experience the unique alpine panorama of the mountains Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau comfortably from different perspectives and pleasant temperatures. The ascent of the Matterhorn, as well as countless other exciting and humorous scenes are waiting to be discovered. The reservoirs of the Grimsel region and of course the Gelmerbahn, the Jungfrau Railway and the Zentralbahn can not be missed on a unique tour into the Swiss mountains. And what would Switzerland be without Interlaken with its magnificent altitude trail and the unique Unspunnen Schwingetfest? Watch the skydiver's rapid flight from a completely new and safe perspective and enjoy the mountain air in the beautiful Lauterbrunnen without any equipment.
Working through each of these new areas to build the finest details is an exciting challenge, and now you can accompany us along this journey. Because we know how much our visitors are not only fascinated by the details and the finished areas, but also have great interest in the development process. In guided tours (during the day up to a maximum of twenty people and outside opening hours also bookable for larger groups), Smilestones offers the opportunity to follow the emergence of the Swiss mountains live and up close. Convince yourself with an informative shoulder glance and maybe also with booking an aperitif for yourself and your group as the Swiss mountains take on more and more shape.
