Michaels' church Meiringen

During renovations in 1915/16 the remains of 3 previous churches were found five metres under the level of the present church. The unique excavations, of national importance, show over 1000 years of history.

In 2005 the archeological department of Bern completely excavated, investigated and documented the interesting history of this church. The excavations are open to the public and are signposted in German and English. Entrance is on the west side of the church near the main doors.

Daily open from 08.00 to 19.00 h.
