An unforgettable visit
New technologies, a fun approach and interactivity permeate our three exhibitions. An omnipresent emotion as a common thread is embodied within sound and visual atmospheres.
Your visit will certainly focus on the Fort itself, but above all it is intended as a reflection of the adventure of a Swiss Soldier and the discovery of National redoubt (A defensive plan developed by the Swiss government beginning in the 1880’s to respond to foreign invasion) through quizzes, strategy games, augmented reality and 3D games.
Challenge your historical and geographical knowledge!
Immerse yourself in a military world in a memorable and fascinating way that you will never before have experienced. Discover the secrets of life within a bunker and the solders’ adventure within.

Entrances are at fixed times and the visit lasts 2 hours.
