The world famous Victorinox Swiss Army Knife has a long and fascinating past. This history is the focus of the Swiss Knife Valley Visitor Center in Brunnen.
We have a range of highlights on offer for you at our 365 square metre centre – these include a show in our mini cinema featuring the prettiest spots in the Swiss Knife Valley. As soon as visitors enter the centre they may explore the Valley as a touch relief experience. We also have a multimedia presentation showing you how Victorinox Swiss Army Knives are manufactured.
By appointment, you may arrange to make a pocket knife all by yourself in our basement area under the guidance of one of our experts. We also have an interactive presentation detailing the history of our knives and the milestones of Victorinox’s past, while themed exhibitions present a range of special exhibits. You may even go on expedition at our Story Corner.
Victorinox has its own brand store on the ground floor. Enjoy delicious regional specialities at the Swiss Knife Valley Shop (1st floor). And, last but not least, visitors may also view presentations by local tourism and commercial enterprises.

Carving with kids
Carving is a fun activity that every child needs to try out with Victorinox.
Whether in the forest or in the garden, you need very little with you to enjoy family fun. Just a Swiss army knife and some wood. Knowing what you’re doing doesn't come from nowhere, of course. That’s why Victorinox provides some basic safety rules and lots of creative ideas for families. The rest is down to practice, experience and imagination. You’ll soon be creating your very own masterpieces. Have fun!
