European Heritage Days
Leisure, sport and fun in Switzerland: cultural heritage is more than a stage setting.
The 29th European Heritage Days scheduled for 10 and 11 September 2022 under the motto 'Freizeit - Temps libre - Leisure - Temps liber' will shine the spotlight on places of art, recreation and sport. In Switzerland, many hours of leisure time are spent at historically important leisure locations. The Heritage Days highlight that cultural heritage is more than a scenic environment at these sites as well.
The Heritage Days 2022 take the public on a journey through the ages to discover places of art, recreation and sport: from medieval and pre-industrial recreation sites such as baths and theatres, to the spa hotel of the Belle Epoque, the first sports hall, the People's House or the museum dating from the 19th or early 20th century.
On 10 and 11 September 2022, several hundred free guided tours, walks, workshops and panel discussions will take place throughout Switzerland.
