Who are Switzerland’s last charcoal burners? How does this stone-age craft work? The answers are to be had during a visit to the charcoal burning kiln. The nine active burners are the last to keep this ancient activity alive in the country. They produce around 100 tonnes of barbecuing charcoal annually, or around 5% of the country’s demand for the product.
The ancient craft can be seen in action. The host explains the background of the craft and how wood is turned into charcoal. The visit lasts roughly one hour and can be combined with other activities.
