ViaStoria – The Organisation behind Cultural Routes of Switzerland
Cultural Routes of Switzerland is a program which has been started by ViaStoria, Foundation of Transport History. ViaStoria is a institution specialised in the history of trafic routes. It is a spin-off of the University of Bern.
Mandated by the Swiss government, ViaStoria has completed an inventory of all the historical trafic routes in Switzerland (IVS). ViaStoria is also active in research and publication of a Trafic and Transportation History of Switzerland.
Once Cultural Routes of Switzerland had been established, ViaStoria took over as the umbrella marketing organisation and became responsible for maintaining the national information platform, producing its publications, ensuring uniformity of quality and marketing the products at a national level.
