The prestigious Museum of Wildlife and Hunting

The only Swiss Museum of Wildlife and Hunting is found in the moated castle of the Bailiff at Landshut. Dating back to the 17th century this grand building lies 200 m east of the River Emme. Water courses flow through the magnificent landscape park, laid out in the 19th century.
Time stands still here, when admiring rooms with their period furniture and paintings, prominent among them being the still lifes by Albrecht Kauw. Visitors experience sheer luxury entering the richly panelled Landshut Room with its beautiful sideboard or the stately ceremonial hall.
The Swiss Museum of Wildlife and Hunting displays, for 50 years this season, the history of hunting and wildlife in Switzerland from the Stone Age to the present day. Emphasis is laid on precious objects and weapons used for hunting, hunting horns, decoys, falconry and hunting with the dog. New special exhibition: «Lipstick and Cartridge – Women are winning the Hunt».
