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.
