Tour of the Selgis command post

Groups can visit the underground command post as part of a guided tour. It is best known for its protected murals.

Enter through the inconspicuous doors directly on the main road and you will find yourself in a large former command centre. Today, prospective leaders complete their cadre exercises here.
Find out why the painted soldier on the entrance wall has a black eye and why Willy Koch had to paint over one of his pictures.
In 1941/42, the Selgis command post for the staff of the Fourth Army Corps was blasted 100 metres deep into the rock. It was regularly occupied by large troop units until 1995.
One year after its construction, Fusilier Willi Koch, a St. Gallen painter in civilian life, was stationed here. During his time at the fortress, he painted 13 large-scale pictures directly onto the concrete walls. He showed his comrades on duty and on holiday and reflected the dreams and aspirations of soldiers on active service. The Canton of Schwyz’s monument preservation authorities have placed the paintings under protection.

The Selgis command post offers guided tours throughout the year.
