The Parliament building opens its doors

Visit the political nerve centre of the Swiss Federal State and embark on a journey of discovery through a Parliament building charged with symbols that represent the history and diversity of our country and its people.
The domed hall, the lobby, and the chambers of the National Council and Council of States are open to visit. You will also get an exclusive insight into the meeting and reception rooms of the Swiss Federal Council.

The President of the National Council Jürg Stahl and the President of the Council of States Ivo Bischofberger will also be present in the National Council chamber between 10.00 and 11.00 to answer your questions.
The celebrations marking the Swiss National Day will be rounded off with music performed by «Stadtmusik Illnau-Effretikon» and Appenzell’s own «Striichmusig Neff».
