This year, for the first time, the museum is also able to present contemporary film witnesses from the Brienz region. The fascinating insights into life and people in Brienz almost 100 years ago invite you on a journey into another, bygone world. Those who want to get information digitally can be accompanied by the “Living History Guide”, the practical tablet that shows stories and backgrounds via QR code.

A world full of lightness, creativity, and joie de vivre was presented by the mobile exhibition THE CUBE with the diversity of the valuable work of the Swiss Woodcarvers Association. It provided a multifaceted insight into the works of over 40 Swiss woodcarvers, around 20 of whom come from the woodcarving stronghold around Brienz. Whether the boy with the harmonica, the fighting (or just cuddly?) cows, masterly slender figures, the wolves or the playful approach of girl and chimpanzee – there were hardly any limits to creativity. The works showed a wide variety of techniques, but also special features from diverse origins.
