Gottardo 2016, South portal

  • Located in the centre of Europe, Switzerland has always been an important hub in European goods and passenger transport. The opening of the Gotthard Base Tunnel will bring yet another improvement. As soon as the access roads are extended from 2020 and the Ceneri base tunnel is put into operation, the passenger’s journey from Zurich to Lugano will take a mere two hours.

    Brass bands

  • All over the country, there is hardly a large festival where a wind band does not ensure a lively atmosphere. These bands enrich village and town life with their performances and contribute considerably to a sense of community among the local population. Switzerland has a well-deserved reputation as a country of wind music.

Alpine Edelweiss

Official commemorative coin 2016
Alpine Edelweiss

  • The edelweiss, the Alpine symbol par excellence, has achieved cult status. Anyone bold enough to pick this rare and difficult-to-access flower for his beloved will certainly be rewarded. The highly coveted mountain flower belongs to the Asteraceae family. The star-shaped part with fuzzy, white 'petals' (technically, bracts) which is generally considered to be the flower is in actual fact not the flower, but a pseudanthium.
