1. Basel Art

One of the most long standing contemporary art shows in the world is held in Basel each June but the city also has other cultural jewels such as the collections at the Fondation Beyeler which are bursting with Bacons, Monets and Picassos and the Kunstmuseum is well worth a visit as well.

Crossing over the nearby German border into Riehen offers you opportunities to visit the Vitra Design Museum and Gotheanum.

The intensity and unique nature of the art in this area is every culture vulture’s dream come true and should be high on your list of reasons to visit Switzerland.3

2. Water

There are so many rivers and lakes in Switzerland that there is always one close at hand, and just like everything else, the Swiss keep this natural resource sparklingly clean.2

Even in the city centres, Swiss rivers are inviting with Zurich alone having almost 20 separate bathing spots.

Punting is more popular in Bern and Basel with many locals commuting to work this way.

3. Zermatt

The resort of Zermatt on the slopes of the Matterhorn is now an all year round, high-end resort and quite the place to see and be seen, with many celebrities having found it to be their prime reason to visit Switzerland.

One of the most desirable hotels in Zermatt is the Backstage.

The ultra-kitsch boutique style rooms have been designed to sit atop transparent boxes, and there is also a stylish cinema complete with chandeliers.

The exterior bucks the alpine trend of pine balconies, choosing a chrome and glass instead.
