Switzerland's oldest art museum is home to one of the country's most distinguished collections that includes outstanding works spanning eight centuries.
Not many cities have managed to retain their historic features quite as successfully as Bern, the capital of Switzerland. The old town of Bern is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and thanks to its 6 kilometres of arcades - the locals refer to them as 'Lauben' - boasts on of the longest weather-sheltered shopping promenades in Europe.
The Kunstmuseum Basel in the St. Alban Graben houses the oldest public art collection in the world. April 2016 saw the opening of the spectacular extension building opposite - created by the local architects Christ & Gantenbein. Visits now are twice as enjoyable.
At 800 hectares, the terraced vineyards of the Lavaux form Switzerland's largest contiguous vineyard area with terrace after terrace offering magnificent views.
