Winter Culture

Bergün Local Museum

Ortsmuseum Bergün
History comes alive here. "Alps and Alpine Farming in our Municipality of Bergün Filisur Yesterday and Today". The exhibition provides insights into the life of the alpine farmers, their work and the use of the highest summer settlements.

We show where alps and pastures are located, how they are used yesterday and today and how they are topographically embedded in the landscape. The work of the shepherds, alpine dairymen or cheese-makers is documented and should be shown to interested visitors. Who is it that agrees to work hard every day for months, getting up early, braving the tides, leading a simple meagre life as an alpine herdsman and in autumn falling prey to the temptation of taking on the same summer job again next spring?

Permanent exhibition

Life in the Engadine farmhouse, traditional artisanal workplaces and Latsch, filming location for the Heidi films of 1952 and 2014.
