Brother Klaus Museum



The museum devoted to Niklaus von Flüe (1417-1487), the patron saint of Switzerland otherwise known as Brother Klaus, is housed in a grand town house dating from 1784 which stands in Sachseln.
"Niklaus von Flüe – Mediator between worlds". The basic exhibition offers an introduction to the mystic, politician and patron saint, peacemaker, mediator and admonisher. Valuable original artefacts, animated and still images, information and statements via headphones and compelling room installations help bring to life this formative figure from the late Middle Ages and explain the influence he has had over the centuries.
