Ten-year anniversary of the Tropenhaus Frutigen

It’s now ten years since the Tropenhaus Frutigen first opened its doors.

The organisation can look back over an exciting period featuring numerous milestones and awards. It is now considered to be one of the most attractive excursion destinations in Switzerland with a high enjoyment value. The anniversary year is being celebrated with activities and a special exhibition: “The Return of the Sturgeons”.

Events in the anniversary year

Special exhibition “The Return of the Sturgeons” 

Overfishing, pollution and interference with natural habitats are all reasons why more than half of all 26 species of sturgeon are threatened with extinction. Since 1990, efforts have been made in Europe to reintroduce this fascinating fish – efforts that have proved successful.
