For quite a time and thanks to its opening to the world and the important population shifts that characterise its history, GateWest Switzerland has been a region of culture and history, having:
- privileged sites
- prestigious museums (Gianadda Foundation in Martigny, the Paul Klee centre)
- festivals of international repute (the Fribourg Film Festival, Verbier Festival & Academy, Paleo Festival of Nyon, Montreux Jazz Festival, medieval Festival of Sainte-Ursanne)
From cities to countryside, from mountains to plains you will find hundreds of exhibitions, concerts, events and plays likely to satisfy all tastes and cultural desires.
