Tips for Tour Operators


You can park your coach directly in front of the Diorama Bethlehem. We suggest, however, that you leave your coach at the coach park next to the schoolhouse at the entrance to Einsiedeln and take the footpath (approx. 150 m) to the Diorama Bethlehem (see map)

Time needed for a visit

The explanation takes about 7 minutes. Taking into account the time for getting the tickets, entering and leaving the crib and the buying of souvenirs you should count with about 30 minutes.If your group exceeds 50 persons you should split it and visit the Diorama Bethlehem separately with each group.
