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.

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.

Switzerland's Museum of Transportation

The Swiss Museum of Transportation, which was opened in 1959, is Switzerland's most popular museum. The history of mobility and communication is documented in exhibitions and theme parks, with simulations, interactive stations and films.

The museum showcases the development of transport and mobility as well as communication methods through a variety of interactive exhibits. Other attractions unique in Switzerland include the film theatre (Imax), planetarium, Swissarena and the Hans Erni Museum.

Alimentarium - Museum of Nutrition

In 1839 a German pharmacist moved to Vevey in the French part of Switzerland and changed his name from Heinrich Nestle to Henri Nestlé. His company, which is known the world over today, founded the Alimentarium, a museum of nutrition.

Located by Lake Geneva in Swiss Vevey, Alimentarium is the first museum in the world devoted exclusively to nutrition. A wonderful and educational vegetable garden also belongs to the museum.
