The lecture-hall of the Linth-Escher-Fountadion is located at the Escher-Canal in Mollis.
The building is a camouflaged Bunker dating back to the second world war, built in 1942. 
The lecture-hall holds up to 30 persons, equipt with the most modern audio equipment 
available. There ist also a permanent exhibition of original documents of the so called 
"Linth-enterprise", historical tools of hydraulic engineering, a model sized 1 : 10'000 
and a 3 - D slide show. During the summer the building  is heated by a solar collector in 
order to avoid high humidity by condensation. Since 1996 the Linth-Escher-Foundation 
organizes regular lectures with respect to historical and modern aspects of hydraulic
engineering. In order to get in touch with us please use the
