A weekend dedicated to the UNESCO World Natural and Cultural Heritage

From June 9th till 11th 2017, Switzerland will organise its second edition of the World Heritage Days. The World Heritage properties will open their doors to the public and offer tailor-made programs for this occasion.

Special tours, open doors, encounters with people working behind the scenes of the World Heritage site and few surprises will make you explore the UNESCO properties. Visit the events near you and take this unique opportunity to discover unexpected facts and experience our heritage. There will also be a conference about the topic "The World Heritage Site as a learning location" in the Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch region.
