Museum of Fine Art

The Museum of Art in Basel merges historically valuable paintings and copper engravings from the 15th to 17th centuries with art from the 19th to 20th century. These two focal points make the museum one of the most important museums of its kind.

Winterthur Natural History Museum

Learning by touching: In the Winterthur Natural History Museum, young scientists are allowed to touch the animals. Like little badgers they can sniff around in an oversized badger's burrow and label and display their finds from forest and meadow in the drawer-museum. They will be accompanied by the popular doll Kerala, which is also ideal for a birthday party. In a playful manner, a museum teacher guides the children through the various themes.

The exhibitions at the Winterthur Nature Museum provide visitors with playful and informative insights into the fascinating world of nature.

Glacier Garden and Lion's Monument

It is one of the world's most famous monuments. It was hewn out of the natural rock in memory of the Swiss heroes fallen who died in the Tuileries. The American author Mark Twain elevated this lion to one of the saddest and most moving piece of stone sculpture in the world.

In the City of Lucerne, three different sights worth seeing are next-door neighbors: the world-famous Lion's Monument, the Glacier Garden, which has a large mountain relief dating to the 18th century, and the mirror labyrinth "Alhambra" with its 90 mirrors.
