The Cutlers’ Festival is held each year on the Saturday, Sunday and Monday of Easter. The visitor can meet master craftsmen of cutlery from all over the world, trade with collectors and discover magnificent creations, knives and valuable pieces.

The two forges of the museum are driven by water-wheels and vibrate with the sounds of the drive belts and hammer blows. This is your chance to discover metal-working, from the production of iron to that of bronze.

The museum exhibits unique treasures: model railway with 277 metres of tracks, the largest set of water-wheels in Switzerland… Restaurant and tasting the local specialities.
