World Heritage Days
A weekend dedicated to the UNESCO World Natural and Cultural Heritage
World Heritage sites are witnesses of land and human history. They tell the origin of the country and are part of the Swiss identity. Each of these places represents authenticity, quality and diversity through generations. Despite their uniqueness, these World Heritage sites have one thing in common: the universal value that they share with the world community.
Every year, during the second weekend of June, the World Heritage Sites will open their doors and invite you to discover their secrets, their uniqueness and their extraordinary value.
