Buried deep in the rock since 1941, exactly opposite Chillon Castle, this former military site, which was on the military’s secret list until as recently as 2001, opens to the general public in 2020, promising to plunge into the astounding history of a fortress designed for the country’s defence.
Built between 1941 and 1942, this fort was, during the Second World War, a place of artillery and infantry. Closed since 1995, it was classified top secret until 2001. A veritable military work, the museum will immerse you in the labyrinth of Reduced Switzerland, a fortification system set up in the Swiss Alps. Through augmented reality and virtual reality, you will discover life in the fort, the strategy that prevails there and the aim of the Swiss National Reduction.
