Long Description:
EN: The 1000 voices tunnel is located on the Bahnhofstrasse east of the old town of Aarburg directly above the tunnel entrance of the Bern-Zürich-Strasse.

It consists of four large, coated concrete rings, in between are intermediate pieces of larch wood with gables. The tunnel is walkable and also has some seating. At the end he has a pane of acrylic glass through which one can watch the traffic.

The tunnel was created on the occasion of the opening of the local bypass of the village center in 2008. The project of the artist Yves Mettler, originally also had an audible part, but the stories told about Aarburg are no longer audible; whether this is ever going to be repaired is unknown.

DE: Der 1000 Stimmen Tunnel befindet sich an der Bahnhofstrasse östlich der Altstadt von Aarburg direkt über der Tunneleinfahrt der Bern-Zürich-Strasse.

Er besteht aus vier grossen, beschichteten Betonringen, dazwischen befinden sich Zwischenstücke aus Lärchenholz mit Giebeln. Der Tunnel ist begehbar und hat auch ein paar Sitzgelegenheiten. An seinem Ende hat er eine Scheibe aus Plexiglas, durch die man den Verkehr beobachten kann.

Der Tunnel wurde aus Anlass der Eröffnung der Ortskernumfahrun im Jahr 2008 erstellt. Das Projekt des Künstlers Yves Mettler, hätte eigentlich noch einen hörbaren Teil, aber die erzählten Geschichten über Aarburg sind nicht mehr hörbar; ob das noch repariert wird, ist unklar.
