Sightseeing & Culture
No place in Switzerland has as many museums as Basel. Revel in works by Picasso and Rothko at Foundation Beyeler, see sculptures move at Museum Tinguely, or visit Vitra Campus for innovative inventions. The list of things to see in Basel is long, but well worth the effort.
Lucerne, the city of lights, looks, smells and feels like magic. Encircled by mountains, adorned with bridges, and boasting a medieval Old Town, this Swiss gem leaves no one unimpressed. Stroll the 14th-century Kappelbrücke, marvel at the 19th-century Lion Monument carved into a sandstone cliff, or visit Sammlung Rosengart’s collection of Cézanne, Renoir, Matisse, Monet and many other artists.
If you’re looking to spend some relaxing days in a truly historic, cultured and charming city, then look no further than St. Gallen. In addition to its traffic-free old town, oriel windows and half-timbered houses, the city’s UNESCO-listed Abbey District fascinates travelers from around the globe. The Abbey Library boasts 170,000 documents, some of which date back 1000 years.
Once you zoom in on Zurich, you’ll see that it’s much more than Switzerland’s financial hub. It’s art and culture thriving in old factories, 1200 fountains, sweeping views and an Old Town with a 3,500-year-old history to tell. Spend a night at the Opera House or jump into Zurich's famous nightlife. And if you love water, you’ll love Zurich. You can take a swim in Lake Zurich, grab a beer and enjoy a concert in a lakeside Badi-Bar or take a romantic ride in a pedal boat. Find your own favorite spot by one of the outdoor pools.
In Andermatt, you get amazing views from the Devil's bridge into the deep Schöllenen Gorge. Legend has it that the devil itself has built this bridge. Be brave, go on a circular route and be impressed by the best mountain views - at any time of the year.
