25 Hobbies Swiss Vapeur Parc, Le Bouveret

In true Lilliput fashion, the Swiss Steam Park is entirely dedicated to railways and its «noblest conquerors», such as the Pacific 231 or other famous locomotives. Miniature trains, installations and works of art, like the completed replica of the George Washington Bridge in New York or the Aigle Castle, built according to scale, will enchant you amidst a lovely 17000 sq. m park.
