Bau der Lawinenverbauungen

In the "Laubänähus" - House of Avalanches, the history of the St. Antönier avalanches can be experienced in an impressive way.

Description

An exhibition dedicated to the history and experiences surrounding the St. Antönier avalanches.

For centuries, St. Antönien has been repeatedly hit by heavy avalanches, which shaped life in the high valley. In a small cinema, old film documents and new footage of survivors telling their impressions can be seen. In the authentically recreated Walserstube, you can experience not only the secrecy but also the queasy feeling of an avalanche night, as in the accident of January 20, 1951, when the light begins to flicker and the roar of the snow masses drowns out your own voice.

But it is not only the tragic events that find a place in the Laubänähus: On a timeline, the planning and construction of avalanche protection from the beginning to the present day becomes visible. Exhibited on real concrete and steel elements, you can get an idea of the dimensions of the imposing avalanche barriers that characterize the Chüenihorn and the Eggberg.
