World Heritage Experience Switzerland WHES


Eigentlich gibt es ein schönes Buch zu den Welterbestätten in der Schweiz: «Schönste Schweiz», von der WHES mit heraus gegeben. Leider finde ich es auf der WHES-Seite nicht im Angebot. Wäre schön, wenn das noch ergänzt werden könnte.
Where in the world you can see a well preserved and well maintained UNESCO World Heritage site, right in the middle of the bustling urban city? Only in Switzerland 🇨🇭️. The fusion of the modern and the world, connecting the future and the heritage. Indeed, a remarkable gift to the world.
Amazing. Thought provoking. Efforts to preserve the rare books are commendable. It is indeed, a gift to the world
Bella Suiza!!😙😙

Swiss cities can usually trace their origins all the way back to antiquity. Typically their historic centre consists of narrow and winding streets. However La Chaux-de-Fonds and Le Locle, UNESCO World Heritage since 2009, have a different set up. Rebuilt after a fire, they were designed for the watchmaking industry, with the goal of maximizing daylight, even in the darker winter months.

The visitor centre in La Chaux-de-Fonds is open daily:

The Planta Tower of the Convent of St. John in Müstair, with its swallowtail battlements, was built as a fortified refuge in the event of an attack by the Saracens.

The Benedictine Convent of St John in Müstair is Cultural Heritage since 1983.The determining factor for the convent’s inclusion in the UNESCO World Heritage List was the presence of the wall paintings in the convent church - the largest and best preserved cycle of medieval frescoes.
