Chillon Castle

The most famous fortress in Switzerland, the Château de Chillon is one of the most beautiful historical buildings in the country and is one of the most frequently-visited sights in Europe. It was constructed in the 13th century over foundations that were even older. The castle is by the lake and at the foot of a hill, and the attraction is therefore twofold: it is a lakeside fortress on one side and a royal residence on the other.

Chillon Castle is located on a rock on the banks of Lake Geneva. The water castle is the most visited historic building in Switzerland. For nearly four centuries Chillon was the residence and profitable toll station of the Counts of Savoy.

Cardada Cimetta – bird’s-eye view

Have you ever stopped to think that right above Locarno there is a panoramic viewpoint that's very easy to reach, which offers spectacular sights from the lowest point above sea level in Switzerland, the river Maggia's delta in Ascona, right up to the summit of Monte Rosa, the highest in the whole country?

The deepest and highest points in Switzerland at a glance – in the south the Lago Maggiore, and to the west the Valais high Alps with Dufourspitze. All this at just a few minutes away from the lively town of Locarno.

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.

The Kunstmuseum Basel focuses on the paintings and drawings by Upper-Rhine and Flemish artists from 1400 to 1600 and international art of the 19th to 21st centuries.

Tinguely Museum

The architect Mario Botta designed the Museum Jean Tinguely. It is devoted to the life and work of this major sculptor in iron.

The Tinguely Museum, located directly on the Rhine, was designed by the Ticino architect Mario Botta and houses the largest collection of works by Jean Tinguely (1925-1991), one of the most innovative and important Swiss artists of the 20th century.
