Crossbow Workshop

Sepp Steiner, better known to many in the region as Wilhelm Tell, knowledgeably introduces you to his crossbow workshop and proudly presents the art of constructing crossbows with the very same tools used to make the historic crossbows of days long gone.

Belle Epoque: A winter week like in days bygone

Kandersteg brings to life the Golden Age of Tourism by celebrating a "Belle Epoque" week: Tourism as it was one hundred years ago. During the nostalgic winter adventure week, there will be bobsledding on the original bobsled run, Eisstock-Schiessen ("Bavarian curling") and curling on the natural ice rink as well as telemark courses. The Grand Café Schweizerhof welcomes visitors at "Tea Time", and the legendary Hotel Victoria Ritter hosts an opulent Belle Epoque Ball.

Fondation Beyeler

This is a private collection of outstanding works of contemporary classical art. Due to the museum's modern architecture, which fits well into the environment, and the skillful presentation of the art works, it is considered one of the world's most beautiful collections.

In 1997, with the construction of the museum designed by Renzo Piano, the Fondation Beyeler now had a publicly accessible venue.
