One programme – three goals

The programme of Cultural Routes of Switzerland has three goals:

  • It offers a new holiday experience: carefree hiking along historic routes, with good food and drink and stylish overnight stays, giving guests the chance to enjoy the beauties of Switzerland through all their senses.
  • It uses the results of academic research, such as the federal inventory of historical routes of Switzerland (IVS) as a basis for new tourist packages which bring guests into close touch with nature and provide them with a worthwhile experience, while at the same time making an important contribution to the sustainable development of the man-made landscape.
  • It links regional and local tourism initiatives with providers of local agricultural produce, and helps create more added value in the regions.
