Bloodhound - a part of Swiss military history

Guided tours


Guided tour of the Bloodhound guided missile station.

This military missile station was developed and constructed in the 60s during the Cold War. It's one of six of its kind in central Switzerland and Jura, all six of which were kept ready and fully functional all throughout the Cold War.

Today it is the world's only specimen of British Bloodhound Mark II and is ready for you to visit. Situated above Menzingen, and with spectacular views, the impressive site will be shown to you and any questions about the former "top secret" object will be answered.

Daily from April until November (depending on the weather some missiles are in the bunkers from November). Short-term guided tours in winter (December to March) available on request.
