Altdorf

With the charm of a typical southern resort, this lovely town serves as a wonderful starting point of your exploration of the Alps.

Altdorf is the capital of the Swiss canton of Uri. The Museum just south of the centre of the town houses a collection of local antiquities, weapons and regional furniture, as well as a collection of portraits of important Uri citizens, including fine ones by the Andermatt-born Felix Maria Diogg. There are several paintings here by the Swiss-born American artist Adolfo Müller-Ury. The museum was extended in the 1990s.

The work of Swiss and international contemporary artists from Uri is exhibited here.
