The Swiss Museum of Transport displays a large collection of railway locomotives, vehicles, boats and aircraft, as well as exhibits from the field of communications. The premises of the Swiss Museum of Transport are also home to a Filmtheatre, the Swiss Chocolate Adventure and Planetarium. The Planetarium dome has a diameter of 18 metres and a total area of around 502 m².

Now you can travel to the far north for 45 minutes in the Planetarium and let yourself be inspired by the northern lights, one of the most fascinating wonders of nature.

Afterwards you can enjoy a cozy fondue on the terrace or alternatively a tasteful 5 course menu in the new brasserie until midnight. Both offers include an aperitif. Mineral water and coffee are of course included with the fondue and dinner. If you choose a package with wine accompaniment, they will find a suitable, local wine for you.

Stroll through the dark museum with a flashlight and learn how mobility works in Switzerland after sunset and what miracles people perform who work at night.

The offer is valid from October 2021 to February 2022.
