Typorama

Bischopfzell is a picturesque town in the municipality of Weinfelden in Canton Thurgau in north-east Switzerland south of the Bodensee (Lake Constance) and the River Rhine. The entire town is on the Inventory of Swiss Heritage Sites. Typorama is a museum of the printing industry managed by the Typorama Foundation established in 2011 and largely run by volunteers. The hand-setting of type is demonstrated, and the museum houses a collection of nineteenth and twentieth century printing machines all of which are in working condition.

Also in the town, and closely associated with its printing industry, is the Bischofszell paper mill which was established in the nineteenth century and worked until 1984 which is listed as a heritage site of national significance.
