A new functionality has been added to the app: the news. Now you will regularly be updated on issues regarding pile dwellers and the UNESCO world heritage "Palafittes".

App Description


The Palafittes Guide is your own personal guide to the pile dwellers and their settlements. The app contains a detailed audio guide to dozens of pile dwelling sites all over Switzerland. At each of these locations we tell you about the treasures from the past that lie slumbering beneath your feet or at the bottom of the lake in front of you, about the way of life of the ancient pile dwellers, and the work of the archaeologists who study them.

In addition, the Palafittes Guide contains a wealth of texts and pictures, as well as details of the main museums where you can see items from the time of the pile dwellers.

The content was written by leading Swiss archaeologists in conjunction with science journalists. The Palafittes Guide is full of interesting and entertaining information about a topic that is also a perfect excuse for some wonderful outings.
