The “convenient location” at Thun – 200 years of the Military Training Aerea

August 1819 to August 2019 – a journey through time with the HAM Foundation

Why did the Tagsatzung decide in August 1818 to select the city and region of Thun as a “suitable location” for the federal central school? What consequences did the training camp held in Thun in 1842 have for further urban development? These are two of the questions answered by the exhibition of the Swiss Army Historical Material Foundation in Military Barracks II. Divided into eight periods, we also present the visitor with the development of the Swiss Army and its equipment from 1819 to the present day. We put a special focus on the equipment of those troops that were of particular importance for the Thun military training center.

We are looking forward to your visit
