Schweizerischer Nationalpark - Here visitors can take a look at historical scenes, discover how bears live, their biology and the likelihood of their return to the region. The exhibition is ideal for children.

The last bear in Switzerland, shot by Jon Sarott Bischoff and Padruot Fried in 1904, is on show in the history section of the exhibition. A bear trap, to original scale, shows the horrible way in which bears were persecuted.

In another section of the exhibition visitors are shown the type of habitat a bear demands, and the distribution of bear populations in Europe today. The latest information concerning developments in Switzerland and neighbouring lands is periodically updated.

Accompanying texts are available in French, Italian and English.
