Intro

The Swiss Ornithological Institute in Sempach is the national centre of research and protection of local birds and their habitats, which is supported by the population. The new visitor’s centre is clearly the destination and the tourist attraction on Lake Sempach.

An interactive exhibit, a bird cinema, a mechanical theatre about birdcalls, and a wildlife garden on the shores of Lake Sempach are your invitation to visit the local world of birds. Visitors will receive a ring and after the exhibit they will be assigned to their personal species of bird with the help of the exclusive ring system. A cafeteria and a shop are also available to the visitors. The centre is housed in the first three-story mud-walled house in Switzerland, a ground-breaking achievement in building ecology.
