Wind farm, Mt-Crosin

"I’m fascinated by these magnificent and imposing constructions. The tour of the wind-powered plant gives you a better understanding and a clearer idea about its usefulness. I also find the place breathtakingly beautiful, especially in winter when it’s covered in snow".

Good to know

  • Opening of the new Visitor's Centre Mont-Soleil - Juvent:  A showroom including several touch screens with exciting contents, a game on power, a large map of Switzerland printed on the floor, which reveals the full potential of wind and sun. These sources of energy are simulated by either a wind machine or a heating lamp. A true highlight at the visitor’s centre is the interactive hologram table in 4D on the subject of « The intelligent mountain or the art of using the forces of nature ».
