City Museums – The Photo Museum Winterthur is the only museum of photography in the German speaking part of Switzerland. It is located in a converted factory. Photography in all its variety is presented in changing exhibitions, lectures and publications. It is a place for photography as an art form and a visual documentation of reality.

Photos are representations of reality - or of alternatives to reality. The photo museum in Winterthur is showcasing the world through a lens. A unique European center of excellence for photographic art has been established, thanks to collaboration with the Swiss Photo Foundation.

Notre-Dame Cathedral

Abbeys & churches – The Old Town of Lausanne has imposing buildings dating back to the Middle Ages, such as the famous Cathedral of Notre-Dame. The charming city on Lake Geneva has a lot to offer otherwise as well. For instance, Switzerland's first subterranean mountain train.

The Swiss National Museum

City Museums – Here, culture and public transportation rub shoulders. The National Museum houses Switzerland's most comprehensive collection of artifacts pertaining to its cultural heritage. The over 100-year-old building is reminiscent of a fairytale castle. On 1st August, new permanent exhibitions will open on both floors. The upper floor houses an extensive exhibition relating to Swiss history while a range of collections is on display on the ground floor.

The National Museum houses the largest cultural and historical collection in the country. Behind its over 100-year-old walls, history comes to life as visitors gain an insight into how previous generations lived, thought and felt.

Augusta Raurica - The Roman City

Interactive muesums – The Romans bred woolly grazing pigs, occasionally called their horses "lecher" and sifted remnants of spices from their wine before drinking it. At least that's what they did in Augusta Raurica, the best-preserved Roman town north of the Alps.
