When passing by, I strongly recommend to visit this amazing place. It is definitely one of a kind! Be prepared to spend about two hours exploring all of the tunnels and yes, it is pretty cold inside. The fortress itself looks like it was abandoned...More
This Fortress is a must see. It is very well presented and has so many things to look at and interact with. The small included museum is interesting. You can also see where the soldiers lived - their rifles and shoes are still there! All...More
The old Gotthard fort shows you how thorough and sophisticated the defense of the Gotthard region was planned by the Swiss Army. The now museum is worth a visit for everybody who wishes to better understand Switzerland and its commitment to freedom. The visit is...More
This place was a wonderful historical place to see. It was a fortress and so amazing and informative on the bunker. We could touch some of the artillery and make the machine guns to see how they were used. We went mid June and it...More
Very special experience, very cold indeed!!! It was below 5°C inside there + very high humidity therefore after an hour spent inside I got almost frozen! Cant imagine how army corps could cope with such environment... Its definitely worth to make a stop high there...More

This is an excellent museum and quite a surprise. I don't think that the leaflet does the fortress element justice.
Access to and from the fortress can be quite time consuming. The "metro" (small funicular) taking you up to the level of the fortress only...More
This place has been kept as a secret for a long long time and has been transformed into a museum just 3 years ago. We have combined the visit with a trip to Bellizona which is only 1hr drive in the afternoon. This is a...More
