Switzerland encourages travellers to “Taste my Swiss City”
Switzerland Tourism has launched their brand new culinary campaign, Taste my Swiss City.
Thoughtfully designed and compiled by locals, the culinary tours are available in eleven cities, where each tour includes up to seven handpicked restaurants, bars, bistros and cafés all linked via a leisurely walk.
With the aim to enhance the visitor’s experience by introducing them to what and where locals eat, these carefully put together tours will also inadvertently help them to gain a better understanding of the local ways of life, culture and the ongoing evolution of the city through the eyes of the residents.
To go on one of the culinary tours, visitors will need to book online and receive a ticket. Upon presentation of the ticket at the participating eateries on the chosen tour, they will be served a specialty dish or even drink. At the end of the tour, the visitor will not only have sampled the equivalent of a full meal, but also discovered unusual culinary spots that are off the beaten touristy path.
The tours are self-guided and take between two and three hours on foot to complete. Priced from CHF60 (approx. AU$80) and up to CHF130 (approx. AU$173), Taste my Swiss City tours are available in Basel, Bellinzona, Bern, La Chaux -de-Fonds, Lausanne, Locarno / Ascona, Lugano, Lucerne, Neuchâtel, Vevey / Montreux, and Winterthur.
