The fascinating city.

Basel Region

Wave good-bye as ships leave the shore. Let this unique , young-at-heart city kindle a yearning for far away places within you, and revel in its rich history and natural surroundings. The lanes and alley of the older quarter. But art and culture alone do not define Basel. Fairs and congresses, scientific institutes and world commerce have also left their mark on the metropolis on the River Rhine, at the heart of Europe. Nearby hills, forests, peaceful valleys and the peaks of the Jura mountains invite you to make an excursion, on foot or by bike, by rail or by tram.


The winter ambience of Basel, art and culture metropolis on the Upper Rhine, meeting point of three nations, is truly unique.
At the open-air market, local specialities tempt the palate, while store windows in the lanes of the old part of the city and special shopping areas, decorated with art and originality, awaken long-held dreams and make you want to window shop.

Time seems to stand still in Basel's unique Christmas House on Spalenberg. The river Rhine mirrors endless chains of light. A cheery Christmas tram takes children through the centre of the city. Thirty museums offer encounters with art, Basel?s culture, antiquity and the future. Sociable people meet in cafés, bistros and excellent restaurants - also ideal places to start an evening at the theatre, a concert or a musical. Classical, gospel and Christmas music are featured at Münster Cathedral; or opera, dance, cabarets. Basel, it can truly be said, is a cultural city par excellence.


Bernese Oberland:


Where nature and holidays come together. Waterfalls crash down sheer cliff sides. Glacier-fed creeks force their way through th narrow Rosenlaui and Aare canyons.

Sail boats roll and excursion steamers leave their wakes on the turquoise waters of Lakes Thun and Brienz. And on the shores, in tributary valleys and on sunny ledges, you'll discover picturesque villages of richly decorated chalets and guest houses in what surely is the embodiment of Swiss-style comfort and serenity.

Bernese Oberland

Delight in the best local art, in castles that are silent witnesses to wealth gone by, and in lovingly restored hotel palaces from the early days of tourism. Deep, dark forests end at the foot of rocky peaks, while cows graze under the ancient Alpine maple trees. Mountain lakes like jewels reflect towering white peaks, and above it all reigns the majestic chain of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. Welcome to the Bernese Oberland.


Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau - famous and resounding names all. Kleine Scheidegg, Schilthorn, Lauberhorn and Männlichen have skiing on top-flight downhill runs in the higher reaches of the Alps.

More gentle skiing can be found in the Simmental, Saanenland and Frutigland regions and on the sun terraces of Hasliberg, Axalp and Beatenberg. High peaks briefly disappear behind a feathering of snow. Mountain railways afford spectacular panoramic views that, in his day, impressed even James Bond. Ice climbing in glacier crevices gets you in touch with your inner self. Ski sailing lets you leave the ground now and then, without danger. Ski tours take you to the untouched world of mountain peaks. Dreamy villages show their homely, friendly faces along the way. Famous holiday resorts and traditional destinations such as Interlaken or Gstaad entice you with their top-level entertainment, and children are always king in Europe's playground. The Bernese Oberland makes every one of your winter fairytales come true.

Central Switzerland:



Unlimited freedom. Switzerland was born when the good people of Uri, Schwyz and Unterwalden formed an alliance at the Rütli. Here, in Central Switzerland, is the Schöllenen Bridge which made north-south travel across the Gotthard range possible, and here, in 1871, Europe?s first cog railroad up to Rigi marked the beginning of tourism as we know it.

Central Switzerland

Historic sites and enchanting countryside abound, from the monument to William Tell to commanding mountain peaks, from cities to remote Alpine valleys, from baroque monasteries to deserted canyons. Surfers brave wind and waves, lake steamers leave majestic wakes, colourful paragliders dot the sky. Mountain trains and suspended cable cars mount the peaks. This is Central Switzerland, the Switzerland of freedom and holidays.


Favourable snow conditions right until spring. In the high-altitude regions up to 3,020 metres, no question – Central Switzerland has powder snow throughout the season.

Who wouldn't like to try it? Skiing and snowboarding on well-prepared pistes, runs in powder snow leaving white rooster trails in your wake, cross-country skiing against a romantic mountain background, going for walks in fascinating countryside, visiting cosy inns in rustic mountain villages and world-famous monastery churches plus special treats such as Lucerne's Chapel Bridge just about sum up winter in Central Switzerland – a holiday that leaves no wish unfulfilled.

Mist above the Rhine River Falls. The ancient Munot fortress towering over the city of Schaffhausen. You cross the Klettgau vineyards, the baroque towers of St. Gall monastery, green hills with houses, trees, small copses like pincushions - you're flying over the canton of Appenzell. The Sitter, Thur and Necker rivers reflecting the sunlight. Suddenly, the bright verticals of the Säntis range.

Lake Geneva Region:



One region, four worlds. They came, saw... and stayed. Courbet, Kokoschka, Charlie Chaplin and David Bowie are among those who settled at Lake Geneva, attracted, no doubt, by the Alpine panorama and almost Mediterranean vegetation.


Lake Geneva Region:

Gently sloping vineyards border the shores of the lake, with the capital city of Lausanne across from the highest Alpine peaks. Lively towns and small wine-growing villages appear scattered at random. The region seems half dream and half reality, but the people in the farm villages who work the wheat fields on the plain above the lake, the inhabitants of the medieval towns and the original inhabitants of the castles have always had both feet planted firmly on the ground. In the quiet Vallé de Joux, nature remains unspoiled. The Jura mountains lie to the north and the Vaud Alps to the east, with lush pastures, chalet villages, mountain peaks and glaciers - as well as sunny ledges ready-made for a relaxed vacation and sporting adventures.


Downhill skiing on the Alpine glaciers of the canton of Vaud, cross-country skiing or snow-shoeing across the Jura range, city life and sophisticated dining - all three worlds come together in the Lake Geneva region to make for a perfect holiday. Extensive woods and plateaux entice you to explore the Vallée de Joux, St-Cergue or Ste-Croix/Les Rasses.

An active cultural life and outstanding shopping characterise the cities of Lausanne, Vevey-Montreux, Nyon, Rolle, Morges and Yverdon-les-Bains. Hospitable mountain villages present a wide range of winter sports: 500 km of downhill runs, more than 200 different modes of transport and special highlights such as igloo adventures and hot-air balloon rides. Few regions offer as wide a variety of holiday pursuits as does the area surrounding Lake Geneva.
