At the old sawmill

The “Säge” in Giswil is one of history’s great survivors. Made entirely of wood, Switzerland’s only water-powered sawmill exudes nostalgia and the romanticism of an age-old craft. You will be amazed at how little water is needed to start the giant wheel turning. And the souvenir piece of wood you get to saw will serve as a permanent reminder of your visit to the “Säge”.
