Glacier Garden

Interesting
This garden transports the visitor to a time when the plain up to the Jura was covered by the Reuss glacier. You can see 32 "giant holes", uncovered in 1872. A museum contains prehistoric collections, a reconstruction of a hunters' cave at the end of the Ice Age and the first relief map of central Switzerland (18C).
