Based in Delémont, Victorinox opens its doors to the public to display all the stages of production for the famous and iconic Swiss knife.
Founded in 1884 in Ibach in the Canton of Schwyz, Victorinox is renowned for its famous Swiss knife, which is known worldwide.
In 2005, the Victorinox group acquired Wenger in Delémont, a Swiss company that also specialises in knives. Victorinox’s purchase of Wenger consolidated the brand’s position as a leader in Swiss army knife manufacturing.
The Delémont factory is a production site for some of the brand’s most famous knives, designed from carefully selected raw materials.
Suitable for families, couples, groups of friends or companies, a guided tour enables you to discover the secrets behind the manufacturing processes including pocket knives, butchers’ knives and peelers.
