Swiss Alpine Museum

From the famous Scheuchzer map to the digital terrain model, you will learn how our ''View of the Alps' has changed over time. Encounters with the beauty of the alpine nature document how life, work, culture and tourism have changed the Alps environment.

Do you know how much water remains when a glacier melts? Have you ever seen a reservoir for artificial snow? Can you guess what female mountain climbers experienced in the 20th century when they climbed mountains that were considered to be the domain of men?

Special exhibits and a thematically broad event and education program give visitors the chance to make new discoveries. Recommended for 'mountain climbers' of all ages.
