Of all the countries that share the alpine region, Switzerland features the highest number of glaciers. Two digital information-stations provide the opportunity to learn many interesting facts about those 400 glaciers. For 70 glaciers, detailed information is available regarding their retreat since 1850, and the top 25 in size are portrayed in detail, including photographs and illustrations, graphs and information regarding tourism, disasters, art and history.

If you are wondering how global warming might affect a glacier in 20 or 50 years time, have a play with the digital model of the Morteratsch glacier.
