For the first time in Switzerland, discover the splendour of this UNESCO listed cave in an impressive life size replica and an exhibition spreading on 4000m2! Thanks to the diversity and quality of the paintings, the Lascaux cave is one of the most important in the world. Discovered in 1940, the wall paintings are considered a treasure of paleolithic art.

When you buy online, select the date and the time you wish to visit the exhibition. On the day of your visit, go directly to the exhibition entrance and you will be guaranteed fast-track access for the 30 minutes following the time printed on your ticket.
