TOURISMUSEUM

A warm welcome
in the first and only museum in Switzerland (opened in 1980), which is comprehensively and exclusively dedicated to the history of tourism. In vividly staged rooms, visitors are invited on an exciting journey through time, telling 250 years of Alpine tourism history from the perspective of both travellers and those who have travelled. Full of surprises, it is a museum with charm, combining lightness and depth, information and entertainment. Located in the middle of the old town of Unterseen, this "somewhat different" museum invites young and old to dream. Right next to the museum are the historic Stadthaus Restaurant, other inns and a picnic area on the banks of the Aare.

This museum greets you in the following languages: D/F/E
