Everyone has heard about the red Swiss penknife, the practical all-rounder to take wherever you go. Every day 25’000 knives are sent from Schwyz, the home of the world-famous multi-tool, to destinations around the globe. It's hardly surprising then that the tourism destination around the capital of the canton of Schwyz meanwhile goes under the name of «Swiss Knife Valley».
Delémont (German: Delsberg), the capital of the Jura canton, lies between the towns of Basel and Biel in the north west of Switzerland, near the French border. This historic town is embedded in the densely forested, hilly Jurassic landscape. Mediaeval buildings, neat house facades and attractive museums form the townscape of the old town.
The small town of Yverdon-les-Bains nestling between the Jura, the hills of the Broye and Lake Neuenburg is the most important spa resort in western Switzerland. In summer the town and the area surrounding it are a water sports and natural paradise.
The new Bürgenstock Resort opens here in 2015. Two luxury hotels, a medical wellness centre, Residence Suites, business facilities and the peerless 10,000 m2 Bürgenstock Alpine Spa, all set against a breathtaking mountain landscape.
