The cultural life in Switzerland is very diverse. Nowhere else in the world is such a wealth of museums, theaters, operas, clubs, sports facilities and other opportunities to spend leisure time.
Many small towns offer a rich cultural program, there are many clubs and initiators for a great cultural landscape. The best is to inform, when you are in Switzerland. For certain interests it is worthwhile to arrange the trip to the festivals.
With culture we do not mean typical folklore events, these are rare in Switzerland, although many Swiss love the tradition. However, this is done for yourself. Very interesting are the carnival events in Central Switzerland and Basel. There are also many occasions, where you can experience the Swiss during the festivities.
The national holiday is the 1st of August, practically every place has its events.
