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.

From 16th october 2017 until 12th may 2018, Landshut Castle and the Swiss Museum for Wildlife and Hunting are closed.

On Mother's Day, 13th of may, the season will be opened with a new series of Guided Evening Tours with topics from hunting, nature and history, as well as interesting events relating to the new Special Exhibition.
