Follow new scents

Man does not live on bread alone.

Today, hunting is no longer necessary to put meat on the table or to make tools from sinews and bones. The culture-historical meaning of hunting has evolved over the millenia, along with hunting methods and techniques.
Since 1968, Landshut Castle is the home of the Swiss Museum of Wildlife and Hunting, the only hunting museum in Switzerland. As such, its first priority is not simply to awaken some kind of "Thrill of the Hunt", but rather to inform about people that hunt, about hunted wildlife as well as the the art of hunting.
