ABSTRACT
The article features the Lucerne Glacier Garden in Switzerland. It recalls that in 1872, the glaciers were discovered while new cellars for the wine merchant Amreim were being constructed in the area. The construction project was abandoned and the area was opened to the public as the Garden of the Primeval World as early as May 1873. It adds that the garden was the first site in Lucerne that was supplied with electric lighting.
