Designtour Langenthal

Featuring textile innovations, stylishly furnished interiors and modern wood construction, the “Designtour Langenthal” lets visitors explore the latest in creative design development. During the factory tour, interested participants will be introduced to five well-known design companies based in Langenthal. In addition, every two years the town is also host to the “Designers’ Saturday” design trade fair, where the latest creations are exhibited.

Precision, quality, innovation and originality – manufacturers in Langenthal present their design products with a great deal of passion and skilled craftsmanship. Création Baumann, Hector Egger Holzbau, Ruckstuhl, Girsberger and Glas Trösch are the companies that offer an exclusive look behind the scenes on their shop floors. They show visitors the step-by-step process that design products follow and take them on a unique journey of discovery.

Participants can choose which option they prefer – a guided “Factory Tour” or an independent “Showroom Tour” – but no matter what, they will be impressed by the authenticity and variety. The Designtour is always worthwhile and can be combined perfectly with an excursion to Langenthal at any time of the year. And how about ending things off with shopping, a visit to the Kunsthaus art gallery, a theater production, and then a stay in a design hotel?

  • Showroom Tour (not guided)

    During the “Showroom Tour”, participants choose their own area to focus on and set off alone on a journey of discovery. Whether you visit the showroom of Création Baumann, Hector Egger Holzbau, Ruckstuhl or Girsberger – you will learn exciting facts about the collections, product portfolios and the corresponding company history.
