Luzern, Switzerland



The Alpineum is a museum and diorama of the Alps in Lucerne, Switzerland.

In 1885, Ernst Hodel senior purchased the building that formerly housed the Lion-Monument-Museum. His plan was to make a permanent exhibition of the large scale landscape paintings of the Alps that he loved. With the help of his son Ernst Hodel junior, he realized a series depicting the Alps, which debuted in May 1901 under the name Alpineum. The paintings occupy a surface of more than five hundred square meters, offering beautiful and unique insight into the world of the Swiss Alps.
