Swiss Activities Tip

Gnawing at the hunger cloth - most people probably know this saying. In St. Martin's Church hangs a large Lenten cloth, a rarity from the 17th century and also known as the "hunger cloth". It was accidentally rediscovered during cleanup work in the 90s and has been hanging above the altar during Lent ever since.
