The William Tell monument may be found in Rathausplatz in the centre of Altdorf. It's a great place for taking the perfect souvenir photo of your visit to Canton Uri: what could be better than a picture of you with Uri's most famous son?

More than just a monument – a tour of the tower

How about seeing the Tell monument from the inside as well as from the outside? Once you've taken your photo of William Tell, go through the door to the left of the statue. This takes you inside the tower behind the monument. Ascend the few steep steps to get a great view of Altdorf village centre – another great photo opportunity! If you want to know more about the monument and its tower, book yourself a guided tour! Our expert guides will take you around the monument and explain the local history. Combine your visit to the tower with a tour of Altdorf to discover its various historical and cultural facets. And the best thing is: the tower doubles as a venue for drinks receptions! If you're looking for somewhere special for your aperitif, the tower is ideal: this little gem can accommodate up to 15 persons.
