Three outstanding natural phenomena and nine great cultural achievements in Switzerland bear the most sought-after emblem of UNESCO, as Natural and Cultural World Heritage properties. Each of them stands for authenticity, quality and diversity for many generations to come. These values are part of the identity and mentality of the Swiss population. As unique as each site is, they are all related to each other – shaped, inspired and formed by the interplay of the creative forces of nature and culture. Conscious travel to these places evokes new and different images of an outstanding and demanding Switzerland, which we share with the global community.

UNESCO Ice Walk
Winter hiking on the frozen Oeschinensee. The UNESCO Ice Walk is incredibly serene and relaxing. Marvel at the white winter wonderland as the snow-covered mountain lake glistens in its best light. Two routes of different lengths lead you across the ice, which is up to 50 metres thick in places. Truly a special experience in the middle of the UNESCO Heritage Site Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch!
