The Institute "Cultures of the Alps" is dedicated to the entire thematic breadth of the special features of the Alpine region - from prehistoric evidence to specific traditions to the challenges of the present.
The Institute Kulturen der Alpen makes its library accessible to interested parties. The reference books can be found in the catalogue of the Cantonal Library of Uri and can be consulted at the Institute.
A research project of the Institute "Cultures of the Alps" sheds light on the construction of reservoirs in the Alpine region and the resettlement of entire valleys that was necessary for this. The Swiss National Science Foundation is now funding Sebastian De Pretto's work for four years.
