Are you well prepared for surviving nuclear bomb blast? AVETH invites you to experience Mount Sonnenberg—the former largest civilian bunker in the world, located in the heart of the city of Luzern!

This giant bunker was built between 1970 and 1976 at a cost of 40 million Swiss francs. If it ever had been needed, two motorway tunnels would have been sealed by four 350-ton gates, with room enough for 20,000 beds and hundreds of toilet cabins – in fact one third of the population of Luzern would have found shelter here inside Mount Sonnenberg. In addition to the two tunnels, the bunker was equipped with a seven-floor subterranean building furnished with a control office, a radio studio, an emergency hospital, detention cells and more. This tour provides a fascinating insight into Cold War times and the fear of the nuclear bomb attack. Register now! Only 24 places available!
