History of Switzerland – From pikes to robots

Guided tour for private groups

In modern times, Switzerland has remained untouched by wars. But it was not always so. For centuries, Swiss mercenaries fought all over Europe. What role did they play in Swiss politics?

If requested, special emphasis can be placed on one of three topics – politics, war, or economics.
