Aventicum – Helvetians and Romans

Prosperous commerce, flourishing trade, approximately 20,000 inhabitants, stately mansions and temples protected by a five- kilometer-long, nearly seven-meter-tall wall with over 70 towers: This was Aventicum, over 2000 years ago.

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.
