The uniqueness of saffron cultivation in MundMund is the only place in Switzerland where this precious spice is still grown according to centuries-old tradition. Some 18,000 square metres of the prized “Crocus Sativus” is grown on a stunning, sunny high plateau. It is difficult to imagine how much hard work and patience is required for every single saffron blossom.
Interesting factsBetween 30 and 1,000 flowers are picked per day during the harvest months of October and November. The stigmas are then plucked from the blossoms and the prized spice is born. Mund’s saffron guild painstakingly produces between one and four kilograms of saffron every year. It becomes clear why everyone is running after Mund’s “red gold”.
Admission and opening hoursAdmission to the Saffron Museum in Mund is free of charge to holders of the newly introduced guest card.
