Three outstanding natural phenomena and nine magnificent cultural achievements in Switzerland are designated World Natural and World Cultural Heritage. Each of these sites reflects authenticity, quality and diversity across generations. These values are part of the Swiss identity and mentality. Combine your next visit to SWISS TAVOLATA with a trip to one of these natural and cultural treasures.
World Heritage properties inspire contemplation, discovery, amazement, experience, learning and exchange. Their significance, fascination and appeal capture the imagination of visitors. They take us from our everyday lives on a journey through time. As living witnesses of an eventful history, they demand answers to important questions: What does our heritage include? How do we live with this heritage, and how do we pass it on to future generations?
World Heritage Experience Switzerland (WHES) is the umbrella organisation for the tourist network of these UNESCO World Heritage sites. For further information about World Heritage and inspiring excursion ideas, please visit: www.whes.ch or www.facebook.com/worldheritageswitzerland.
