Victorinox is an icon of Switzerland. This store in Brunnen with stunning lake view provides a nice visitor center with lots of interesting information and free entrance. Service is also very kind and customer centric in the shop, so highly recommended to visit.

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed the Swiss army knife assembly session. We were guided by Phil, who was not only fun to talk to, but also technically skilful. He is very patient and humourous. He is the best type of teacher, in my opinion....More

Situated in the middle of Brunnen, it’s easy to find, but check museum opening hours. A great little interactive museum on three floors. You can also purchase Swiss Army knives, bags, perfume, tshirt etc. If you can wait approx 30 mins you can also design...More
