The Greisinger Museum - which is still under construction - is located in eastern Switzerland, precisely in Jenins, one of the municipalities in the canton of Grisons, which are well known for wine-making. The museum is expected to open its doors in September 2013 for fans and friends of Middle-earth.
The museum houses the Greisinger Middle Earth Collection (GMEC), Bernd Greisinger's private collection focused on "Middle-earth", the world's largest and most important of its kind which consists primarily of art and literature as well as collectors' items of any kind.
The construction of the museum started in mid-2008. Planning and building of the museum were orientated on optimizing the use of the Greisinger Middle Earth Collection. All rooms provide you with their warmth to the visitors the feeling of being in Middle-earth. Through the door of the hobbit hole you get into the museum, whose rooms are for the most part underground.
