Permanent EXHIBITION

If you press the Exhibition button, you will be guided to a description on what you will find here in
our Museum of Witchcraft. You will also see a small slide show. Enjoy!
  
Do you want to know what lightning stones and dragon tongues are, why mistletoe helps against dizziness, allegedly black cats are an unhappy sign and why all this relates to Hippocrates and witches?
Then you are in the right exhibition! The Hexenmuseum Schweiz presents the witch trials in Switzerland and Europe,                  highlights the effects of today and opens a window into the history of Swiss folklore, legends and superstition.

Learn about the customs of our ancestors like the use of amulets to ward of the evil. We show the aspects of divination: Tarot, astrology, chirology, crystal ball and tea leaf reading.

Magic and spells are among the oldest records from all parts of the world.

The Hexenmuseum Schweiz in a neutral but professional setting, dealing with these exciting topics. Much of the customs are still cultivated today, but without knowing the meaning or the origin of them. Or do you know why we toast with glasses and Friday the 13th  allegedly bring bad luck?

 

A look into history opens up many contexts, promotes understanding of the emergence of different designations and our worldly concept. The encounter with our past allows a critical appreciation of the achievements.
