class exchanges
The Alimentarium is already renowned for its pedagogical approach and, since spring 2019, now offers a new initiative aimed especially at language exchange classes.

This unique programme intends to:

  • Show the three fundamental dimensions of food: physiological (fuel for the human organism, a factor in fortifying the body and helping it grow), psychological (pleasure, sensory perception of tastes) and sociological (belonging, identification).
  • Highlight the similarities as well as the differences in the eating habits in the German- and French-speaking parts of Switzerland. Did you know, for example, that French-speaking Swiss like brown eggs, whereas their German-speaking compatriots prefer white eggs?

    It includes:

    • Group welcome at the Museum
    • Bilingual discussion led by one of the Alimentarium’s experts on the importance of food, and food-related issues
    • Bilingual guided tour of the Alimentarium’s three exhibition sectors
    • Discussion regarding the exhibition and the general theme
    • Tasting museum-made cordials
    • Teaching resources, in French and German

    For whom? When? How much?

    • Target audience: Secondary I (from age 10) to secondary II
    • Number of participants: Two classes and accompanying adults
    • Times: Morning or afternoon, depending on the teachers’ preferences
    • Duration: 1 h 30 min to 2 h 
    • Languages: French and German
    • Price: Fixed price for 2 classes (40 pupils), CHF 400 (free for accompanying adults)

    NB: Depending on the time of year and the weather, you may picnic in the Garden or reserve a meal (not included in the package) in the Alimentarium Restaurant.
