Are you interested in the unique collections and rooms of the Iron Library and the Paradies Monastery?

We would be pleased to organize a tour for you.

In the historical rooms of the library you will find our unique collection of books on the history of science and technology, as well as the oldest wall paintings of the monastery complex. In the current exhibition we present rare and important works from the history of the Industrial Revolution, a selection of books with fascinating provenances, and the opportunity to learn about the materials used to make our books. In the tour of the Klostergut, visitors can gain an insight into the history of the Paradies Monastery, its owner, Georg Fischer Ltd, and the life and travels of GF's founder Johann Conrad Fischer.
