Come with us on a fascinating journey into the past and experience a traditional Switzerland you have never seen before.

You’ll have the opportunity to look over the shoulders of handicraft workers as they practice their craft in the traditional way. On the way through the museum, marvel at cultivated flower and vegetable gardens and observe cows, goats and pigs as they graze. Our train ride to the museum offers stunning views of the turquoise Lake Brienz, which is surrounded by high mountains and breathtaking scenery.
