Follow new scents

Man does not live on bread alone.

Today,hunting is no longer necessary to put meat on the table or to make tools from sinews and bones. The culture-historical meaning of hunting has evolved over the millennia, along with hunting methods and techniques. Since 1968, Landshut Castle has housed the Swiss Museum of Wildlife and Hunting, the only hunting museum in Switzerland. As such, its first priority is not simply to awaken some kind of "Thrill of the Hunt", but rather to make information available about hunting people and hunted animals.

Upcoming Events

From 17th october 2016 until 13th may 2017, Landshut Castle and the Swiss Museum for Wildlife and Hunting are closed.

On Mother's Day, 14th of may, the season will be opened with a new series of Guided Evening Tours with topics from nature and history, as well as interesting events relating to the current Special Exhibition.
