Lauterbrunnen valley Museum

The Museum building as it stands today was formerly known as 'the Mill' and historically was an economical and political centre. Until the mid19th century, grain was milled here and up until the early 20th century the Mill? provided the salt trade for the valley. The larger room on the upper floor served at one time as a Courtroom.
The main features of the Museum include:

  • The life and work of the valley forefathers
  • Lacemaking
  • Iron Ore and Lead Production
  • Alpine Sports and Tourism
