The Hagerbach Test Gallery celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2020. The mining engineer Rudolf Amberg founded the company in 1970 with the aim of creating a unique environment for testing and innovations.

Over the last five decades this goal has been consistently pursued, and so today the tunnel system offers our customers ideal conditions for research, development, testing, 1:1 trials and events.

The long tradition, strong partnerships and the pioneering spirit drive our team to a sustainable use of the underground now and in the future. Partner projects such as the Aquaponics Prototype or the Underground Data Centre bear witness to innovative strength and mark the beginning of the next 50 years of our success story.

On this page you can find out everything about the anniversary activities as well as exciting facts about the Hagerbach Test Gallery. You will also gain an insight into our history and the future.
