Sasso Gottardo

For those fascinated by Rick Steve's descriptions of Swiss Army caves and guns hidden under pastures, the new Sasso San Gotardo attraction/museum at the Gotthard pass in Switzerland is worth the trip. Opened in 2012, this huge complex of caves and tunnels at the top of the pass was built during WW and stayed in active military duty into the 1990s. Went there this summer and loved it - felt like a hobbits deep in the Mines of Moria More information: http://www.sasso-sangottardo.ch/en
