Architecture that values light, an urban structure that facilitates transport: La Chaux-de-Fonds and Le Locle are the result of innovative town planning in the service of a booming industry. The buildings tell the story of how watchmaking evolved from a craft into an industry – and show how this activity was integrated into the development of the urban landscape.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

St. Gall’s magnificent emblem is its sublime cathedral, which together with the Abbey District forms a historic ensemble that is unmatched worldwide. The famous Abbey Library sports the most beautiful secular Rococo interior in Switzerland. Dubbed the “Pharmacy of the Soul”, it is home to 170,000 precious books as well as 2,000 priceless medieval manuscripts.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

134 individual pictures, the frescos of the St. Johann monastery in Müstair show scenes from the entire healing history. The monastery church houses the world's largest and best preserved cycle of paintings from the early Middle Ages. And because the monastery complex was never completely destroyed, it still represents 1200 years of history. This valuable cultural heritage is been looked after with a lot of commitment to preservation and care.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The World Heritage Days on 9 and 10 June 2018 invite you to celebrate the UNESCO World Heritage! 😄⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

To the Swiss, the site of present day Bellinzona has long been both a barrier and a gateway to Italy: barrier, because the Dukes of Milan built fortresses and high walls blocking the entire valley; gateway, because once the obstacle was overcome, it opened a clear road to the north of Italy.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The three castles together with the defensive wall and ramparts are an outstanding example of a late medieval defensive structure and an UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The history of the medieval times comes to life again in the Castello di Montebello: The local festival "La spada nella rocca" will take place on 26/27 May. More information: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Lavaux ist one of those places that are enchanting at first sight. Many catch their first glimpse on the train from Berne as it exits the Puidoux Tunnel and the vast panorama of Lake Geneva (Lac Léman) and the Lavaux terraces suddenly opens up in front of them. Others dirscover this magnificent scenery on a visit to the terraced vineyards around Grandvaux or from the Balcon du Léman, as the village of Chexbres calls itself.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The World Heritage Site Jungfrau - Aletsch is one of the most spectacular high mountain landscapes in the world. There is a symbiosis with the surrounding, man-made living space. The area is considered an excellent example of the emergence of mountains and glaciers as well as of current climate change. 
And the view to the Konkordiaplatz and further to the Aletsch Glacier is stunning! Enjoy the view - whether in summer or winter season!

Easter Tip: Take a trip to Ticino and visit the fossil museum in Meride!🌞🐠 Mountains that rise like pyramids, a lake that stretches its deep blue arms and picturesque villages: the stunning beauty of Monte San Giorgio’s countryside is reason enough to be listed as UNESCO World Heritage property. Its uniqueness, however, stems from its hidden treasure – fossils dating back 240 million years. The fossil museum in Meride offers exciting insights into this mysterious world..

Spring is coming, let’s go back to nature! 🌳🌻🌞
Brooks, lakes, waterfalls, rock gardens and the protected Swiss pine forest reserve at the Murg lake promise an unforgettable experience! And if the weather is not good: How about a visit to the visitor centre in Glarus or Elm?

Here you can experience the urban history of the last 800 years in a vivid way. The old town of Berne is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a good example of how a city can maintain its medieval structure despite continuous renovation and at the same time meet the requirements of a modern city.
