Hello kids!

Do you know Türli and Flidari? The two rascals have visited the UNESCO World Heritage Sites and experienced many funny adventures traveling through Switzerland.

You are probably asking yourselves "What are the UNESCO World Heritage Sites"? These are places and regions, either with landscapes worthy of protection that are unique in the world, or places that play an important role in the history and culture of the people. These buildings and landscapes are to be handled well, so that future generations can still enjoy them.

The pictures of these trips are all not yet colorful. Therefore you can print them out here and colour them in. Türli and Flidari also explain to you why each place is so special why it has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Have fun with it!

PS: If you want, you can also send us your drawings. We will then show your artwork to other children via our website, Facebook and Instagram. Please enter your first name and your age.

Three Castles of Bellinzona

The castles called Castelgrande, Montebello and Sasso Corbaro were important defensive structures in the Middle Ages between Switzerland and Italy.

Convent of St John in Müstair

The Convent of St. John has been home to nuns for many hundreds of years and still is today. The nuns live, work and of course pray there. The old wall paintings in the church of St. John are unique. 

Monte San Giorgio

Inside the "Monte San Giorgio" mountain, researchers have excavated and found ancient reptiles up to 240 million years ago. Even today researchers are still excavating new fossils.

La Chaux-de-Fonds / Le Locle, Watchmaking Town Planning

The two towns on the border with France were built especially for watchmakers after a fire destroyed them at the beginning of the 20th century. Since they needed a lot of light to work, all streets and houses are aligned according to the course of the sun.

Prehistoric Pile Dwellings around the Alps

Near many lakes, archaeologists have found traces of pile dwellers. Among the well-preserved finds are for example jewellery or tools that are several thousand years old.

Rhaetian Railway Albula/Bernina

Confusing tunnels, spectacular bridges and clever lines were necessary to cross the mountains. They make the train route between Thusis and Tirano something very special.

Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch

Between the Canton of Bern and the Canton of Valais is a uniquely beautiful landscape with the largest glacier area in the Alps. About 90% of the area is covered by rocks or ice.

Convent of St. Gallen

The Abbey Library is one of the oldest libraries in the world still in existence today. Approximately 170,000 books and 2000 manuscripts from the Middle Ages can be found there.

Swiss Tectonic Arena Sardona

Our Alps were created hundreds of centuries ago, only when the continents of Africa and Europe were pushed against each other. Nowhere else in the world today is it possible to see better how the mountains were formed than in the landscape around the Tectonic Arena in Sardona.

Old City of Bern

The capital of Switzerland, was founded in 1191 and is today one of the best preserved medieval cities in the world.

Lavaux, Vineyard Terraces

Many centuries ago, the inhabitants of present-day Canton Vaud began to set up vineyard terraces. Since then, these 40 km of vineyards on Lake Geneva have been cultivated and cared for by many generations of winegrowers.
