Enhancement of the cultural landscape of the Schaltenrain (Ins, Switzerland)

On the Schaltenrain hill separating the Grosse Moos from Lake Biel there are two groups of archaeological ruins of national importance. These are the ramparts of the medieval castle of the Lords of Fenis, the Hasenburg, and the tumulus cemetery from the Early Iron Age in Grossholz. Although from different eras, both sites bear witness to the political and economic power of the region. The presentation project was initiated by the Archaeological Service of the Canton of Bern in close collaboration with the municipal authorities of Ins and the Pro Fenis Hasenburg association. ArchaeoConcept proposed an enhancement concept based on the themes of the natural and cultural environment, the dominant position of these remains in relation to the ancient roads and the geopolitical situation of the periods concerned.

In this context, ArchaeoConcept also set up the website of the Pro Fenis Hasenburg association.

This concept includes the installation of educational panels on these two sites and the creation of a leisure trail. Along the way, visitors can access audio and visual information on their mobile phones.

The project has been developed in close collaboration with History Projects.
