Bern

The old town of Bern has been entered in the list of UNESCO Cultural World Heritage Sites 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 Zentrum Paul Klee houses the most comprehensive collection of works by the artist.

Kunstmuseum Basel and Museum of Contemporary 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 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.

Lavaux, Vineyard Terraces

At 800 hectares, the terraced vineyards of the Lavaux form Switzerland's largest contiguous vineyard area with terrace after terrace offering magnificent views.
