Guided Tour: The "Bloodhound" Missile Station

Guided tours

Description

Discover a piece of military history! It was once "Top secret", but is now available to the general public. The Bloodhound Missile Station BL-64 ZG can finally be uncovered and discovered.

This military missile station was developed and constructed in the 60s during the Cold War. It is one of six of its kind in central Switzerland and Jura, all six of which were kept ready and fully functional all throughout the Cold War. Today it is the world's only specimen of British Blood- hound Mark II and is ready for you to visit. Situated above Menzingen, and with spectacular views, the impressive site will be shown to you and any questions about the former "top secret" object will be answered.
