Points of interest

Swissmill is the largest mill in Switzerland that operates 800 tons of grain. Although the silo's exterior and height is disputed, the municipal authorities claim that the silo is intentionally designed in its aesthetically conscious way. Its external appearance is intended to express its interior – an industrial plant.[1]
