Close to the Alps and Lake Geneva, overlooking vineyards and the countryside, the site of the World Cycling Centre is the perfect place to get away from it all. The World Cycling Centre combines athletic and administrative areas, conference rooms, multi-purpose floor and the Vélodrome. For those wishing to organise events, the World Cycling Centre offers the option of an all-inclusive and customised service for large-scale events in an unusual setting.
In its refurbished historic premises above Ascona, the Monte Verita Congress and Culture Centre welcomes both cultural and scientific events.
On the banks of Lake Maggiore at Brissago, there is a charming example of industrial archeology. It is a characteristic structure with buge windows fromwhich to take in the unbeatable view of the lake, as weIl as the vast grounds surrounding the centre on which there is a place für a small private port, a subtropical garden, and a characteristic Grotto, all of which help to make this a unique building of its kind in this area.
