Augusta Raurica - The Roman City

The Romans bred woolly grazing pigs, occasionally called their horses "lecher" and sifted remnants of spices from their wine before drinking it. At least that's what they did in Augusta Raurica, the best-preserved Roman town north of the Alps.

The Swiss National Museum

Here, culture and public transportation rub shoulders. The National Museum houses Switzerland's most comprehensive collection of artifacts pertaining to its cultural heritage. The over 100-year-old building is reminiscent of a fairytale castle. On 1st August, new permanent exhibitions will open on both floors. The upper floor houses an extensive exhibition relating to Swiss history while a range of collections is on display on the ground floor.

The National Museum houses the largest cultural and historical collection in the country. Behind its over 100-year-old walls, history comes to life as visitors gain an insight into how previous generations lived, thought and felt.

Grand St. Bernard - Pass and Saint Bernard Dogs

The Saint Bernard dog is a special symbol of Switzerland. Everyone knows that the large and good-natured Barry saved the lives of lost mountaineers. The four-legged hero has always been bred at the Alpine Pass of Great Saint Bernhard.
