Impressing mountain chains, wild valleys und the largest iced area of the Alps – for UNESCO it was very clear: this site is worth to be inscribed as World Heritage of outstanding universal value.

A visit to the library, one of the oldest and most beautiful in the world, is a MUST. It’s also well worth making a detour to the cathedral. Dubbed the “Pharmacy of the Soul”, it is home to 170,000 precious books as well as 2,000 priceless medieval manuscripts and UNESCO Cultural Heritage since 1983.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

A new perspective of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Rhaetian Railway at the #landwasserviaduct. @pat_huebscher did a great job showing us how the railway and the landscape seamlessly blend into the environment. If you want to know more about this unique place we recommend you to visit the Albula Railway Museum at Bergün: https://goo.gl/dB3GWQ

Come and visit these places, the local territory of Monte San Giorgio as well as the fossil Museum in Meride or Besano, they will allow you to discover a fascinating lost world dating over 200 millions years ago. Monte San Giorgio is one of the most important fossil deposit in the world. The fossils coming from this mountain are known for their variety and their exceptional good conservation!

Bellinzona, everything is close at hand, from the World Heritage castles to the city centre. From history to now, in a trice; from the time-worn walls to the street market. A city rich in memories and traditions that attracts visitors from everywhere. With the Bellinzona Pass, medieval times come to life in the three castles of Castelgrande, Montebello and Sasso Corbaro!

The outer appearence of the convent of St. John in Müstair is deceptive in its simplicity, for it contains the most extensive series of  frescos from the age of Charlemagne preserved in situ als well as remarkable Romanesque frescos .
It would be a mistake to think of these frescos as mere decoration. They are above  all thoughtful evocation of the Chrisian doctrine of salvation, representing the life and work of Jesus Christ.

The arcades that stretch for over six kilometres are typical of Berne; allowing ease of movement irrespective of the weather, they combine usefulness with beauty. Also the wather supply had long been part of the city's infrastructure. In the picture you see the "Zähringerbrunnen". #unesco #worldheritage #worldheritageswitzerland #uniteforheritage #patrimoine2018 #weltererbe2018 #patrimoniomondiale #doyoutravel #ilovebern #madeinbern
