Food through the ages

The “What does Switzerland eat?” exhibition provides a glimpse into the saucepans of Swiss people. On display in Schwyz, it highlights the many facets of our cuisine, past and present. It focuses on the nation’s culinary heritage – famous classic dishes but also lesser known specialities, such as “Gumpesel” sausages from Meiringen.

“What does Switzerland eat?” – an exhibition at the Forum of Swiss History Schwyz. Until 1 October 2017.
