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

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.

This is a brand store + Museum + Promotion for local product. It is a must to get there if you are a fan of the swiss knives! When I was there few days back they are giving 10% discount for swiss knives that are more than CHF10 and 20% for visitors who are staying in Hotels in Brunnen. They... More

The museum is full of interesting info on the development of the pocket knife and Victorinox. Assembling your own Spartan is quite fun and a good value at 30 francs. The main blade is stamped with "self assembled in Brunnen." I was told this was not available anywhere else. The Victorinox expert was patient and made sure my work was... More

This was a fun stop while in Brunnen. It has a small, but interesting, museum and a factory store featuring Victorinox products, such as Swiss Army knives, cutlery, watches and luggage. A very nice place to browse. What makes this place special, though, is that you can, by appointment, assemble your own personalized Swiss Army knife. Only one style is... More

Stopped in on our way to Austria and we're glad we did; my daughters each got a Swiss Army Knife and they haven't put them down since!! The engraving was the icing on the cake....we didn't pre-book so we couldn't make our own knife, but we did see someone else getting one done and I would highly recommend it...nothing better... More

This building is located in the middle of a cute village. The tour or should I say videos were nice. Not really much of a visit. No real history or other special information. Making a knife and the tools is pretty straight forward. The valley is very beautiful and the shops and restaurants around the place are very nice. The... More

Wonderful new visitor centre. Free entrance. Film about the history of Victorinox. Display of local goods which you can sample and purchase if you wish. Good range of products in the shop. Very friendly shop assistant called Rosie, she can speak several languages and can't do enough to help.
