As of 01.08.2020, it is compulsory to wear a mask in our Museum (with the exception of our Café & Restaurant areas). Please remember to bring one with you when you pay us a visit! Masks are also available at our Welcome Desk (CHF 0.50 each).

Let’s stay safe together! Thank you for your help and understanding.

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)
