History of Arbon

Learn about Arbon's past

After a long selection process, the UNESCO World Heritage Committee in Paris decided in the summer of 2011 to designate the most important “prehistoric pile dwellings in the Alpine region” as UNESCO World Heritage. Two of the Arbon pile dwelling villages are part of it. The scientific potential, the perfect condition of the numerous found objects and the lasting protection of the existing settlement remains in the bleaching district after the excavations are decisive for the rare award.

Further information can be found on the homepage of the city of Arbon.
