A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! Visitors to the bell foundry in Berger in Bärau can now cast their own bells. The first job is to decorate the sand moulds, after which guests are taken on a tour of the foundry while the metal is being heated up to 1100 degrees. Once it is molten, the bells are cast and just a short time later can be admired as unique works of craftsmanship.

He is as keen as mustard on his profession: René Burri 's original glass art, which ranges from pretty accessories to practical products for everyday use, is celebrated the world over. His guided tours through his workshop in Wila delight not only insiders and connoisseurs, but all those who like to try their hand at this art. You can blow your own glass for the aperitif at the end of the tour. It may not turn out to be a work of art, but it certainly will provide a lot of fun for all participants.
