Swiss Alpine Museum

The Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau mountains lie within easy reach of the capital city. With its various exhibitions, the Swiss Alpine Museum allows visitors to experience the wonder of the mountains up close and creates new ways to access them.

“L’aigle” from Albert Gos

Summer resorts and climate change, mountain farmers and glacial retreat, tourism and second homes: The Swiss Alpine Museum uses unconventional approaches to address current issues affecting mountains around the world. The ensuing debate connects the cultural, scientific, business, social and political sectors. The museum acts as an interactive platform that raises questions and then discusses them. Exhibitions, events and projects all address the differing perspectives.

At “las alps”, the museum’s own restaurant, visitors are treated to delicious lunch menus, relaxed Sunday brunch from October to April and – upon request – evening cocktail parties. The museum can also be booked for private events and banquets. Find out more here.
