As the hot weather arrives what better place to cool down than the top of a mountain – providing you don’t have to walk up it to get there!

With this in mind, the Société du Téléphérique du Salève has offered our readers the chance to win 2 free return tickets to ascend Geneva’s most famous mountain, Mont Saléve, by cable car!  There are five pairs of tickets up for grabs!

Taking you to an altitude of 1100m in less than 5 minutes, the cable car provides you with some of the most stunning views of Geneva that you will ever experience. Once you get to the top, there are numerous opportunities to explore the mountain further, or take part in some of the varied activities which have been set up for families and friends to have fun.

Inspired by the golden era of its Belle Époque heritage, Neuchâtel Tourism has organized a series of original tours for tourists that combine history, gastronomy and architecture. With eighteen wall paintings spread across the city centre, an unforgettable 'trip' on an authentic period tram, and a tasting of the green fairy (absinthe), there is plenty for visitors to see, experience, and taste on a day trip to Neuchâtel!

The Belle Époque: an era of economic boom and flourishing tourism

From 1896 to 1914, Europe experienced a brief magical period: a few years of peace marked by strong economic growth. This period of ebullient progress was later named the 'Belle Époque'. Inspired by those golden years that boosted the region's economy and helped tourism to flourish, Neuchâtel Tourism and the Municipality of Neuchâtel invite you to journey back in time and discover those carefree years through a series of original tours and visits that are equally suitable for groups, families or single travellers.

After reopening in June 2016, the Alimentarium is launching its first ever annual theme: Food – Vice or Virtue? From the magical qualities attributed to certain nutrients, to the economic constraints of organic farming, and to food safety and nutritional concerns, the Alimentarium invites you to explore the concepts of ‘good’ and ‘bad’, ‘natural’ and ‘artificial’, when applied to food and how it is produced. Traversing popular notions and current scientific discourse, this theme adds a new twist to the permanent exhibition. It will evolve throughout the year, with the addition of new content accessible in the Museum itself or 24/7 on its digital platform.

First annual theme since the Museum reopened
With Food – Vice or Virtue? the Alimentarium is launching its first annual theme since reopening in June 2016. This topic adds a sprinkle of seasoning to the three sectors of the permanent exhibition – Food, Society and the Body – as well as to the Museum’s digital content. The Alimentarium invites us to reflect on the notions of ‘good’ and ‘bad’, ‘natural’ and ‘artificial’, in the context of food, whether in relation to industrialisation of production methods, aversion to food, the size of food portions or monitoring data from our body. This is a lively, progressive exploration of perceptions and current scientific discourse.
