Uniqueness of the Munder saffron culture
Mund is the only place in Switzerland where the precious spice of saffron is still cultivated today according to centuries of tradition. The precious "Crocus sativus" grows on an area of around 18,000 square metres on the beautiful and sunny high plateau. A lot of patience and hard work goes into every single saffron flower.
Worth knowing about saffron
Between 30 and 1,000 flowers are harvested daily during the season in October and November. The precious spice is extracted from the pistils of their flowers. Every year, the Munder saffron guild produces between one and four kilos of saffron in painstaking manual work. Now it is clear why everyone is buzzing about the "red gold" from Mund.
