Deep in the heart of the mountain is hidden a network of Swiss army artillery fortifi cations which were top secret until a few years ago.
What was once considered an unassailable fortress and went down in the history books under the name of «Reduit Suisse» («Swiss Redoubt»), now houses the unforgettable world of Gotthard.
Come and see the biggest group of crystals ever found in the Alpine regions and the multi-media displays that highlight the myth of the Gotthard and the theme of mobility and energy. Plunge into the longest train tunnel in the world and marvel at its dimensions and the new possibilities it offers. The darkness yields up many surprises and leads you into a dynamic world of speed, precision, steel and stone.
Ride up to the historical fortress in the underground «Metro del Sasso». Experience history up close in the gun emplacements, magazines and soldiers’ living quarters deep in the heart of the Gotthard. A gallery brings you out into the open onto a spectacular platform, where you can enjoy the view of the rugged mountain landscape from an astonishing perspective.
An unforgettable experience for young and old, whether families, schools or groups.
