First of all, please not to expect some hudge center with some special entertaiment part or museum like Luvr or Prada. We are in Switzerland. It's small, with a soul like an Inox it self. Sharp, direct, powerfull. Yes, nothing special for curious tourists. I have heard about it tousands time before. But what can be more fabulous than Victorinox... More

It's interesting and you might save a franc or two on the products. If you're in Brunnen it's worth a visit.

The Swiss Knife Valley Visitor Center is in fact a shop for Victorinox products, ie Swiss Knifes and Far-East travel gear and leisure clothing. In addition, there is in the basement a "museum" where you can follow the story of the Swiss Army Knife. In addition, you can see a film about the fabrication of knives and a not very... More

I had heard that you can make your own army knife here so when passing through Brunnen we decided to do so! I had called two days in advance to make appointments for my three kids to do so--they had a few times at that point and were very accommodating to our schedule. The man who did it with my... More

The Swiss Knife Valley visitor center is just a Victorinox shop with a small museum of historical and modern pocket knives with free entry. The exposure of knives is very good if you are interested in it. But the museum is no reason to come to Brunnen. People manly come here to enjoy the Lake of Lucerne.

A group of us visited the Swiss Knife Valley Visitor Centre in Brunnen in July 2014. It is a very small place just a block or so away from the ferry terminal in Brunnen but it is very well worth the visit if you are a fan of Victorinox Swiss Army knives and other Victorinox items. Upstairs is a small... More

Made a special stop at Brunnen so that we could visit the museum. We were in the process of watching the timeline history of the company when a group of people entered the room with a guide. Without a word to us, the guide interrupted the display and proceeded to restart it in French for her group. It was only... More

A great employer with an outstanding social record. Produces knives for the kitchen etc, pocket knives, Luggage, Outdoor clothes, and luggage. There are even perfumes for... More

Went with group kids ages 6-15. We prebooked for the 8 of them to make their own knives for 30Chf each. Everyone was really happy with the experience and the knife. The women helping us were very patient and helpful. Highly recommend.
