Wonderful Landscapes, Frozen Lakes, Flaming Hearts



Helvetic country is a land made of hills, mountains and beautiful lakes. Like the ones proposed by three Top Events of Switzerland – the association which involves eight world-renowned events, including the Festival del film Locarno. A series of beautiful landscapes meeting outstanding sport events.

September, for example, is a great month to visit the canton of Valais. In the heart of the Swiss Alps, the Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club is going to organize the 67th edition of the Omega European Masters, one of the most prestigious golf competitions played on European soil. The tournament will take place from September 4th to 9th.

A few months later snow will transform Swiss territory. About 60 kilometres north-east from Crans-Montana, Wengen (in the canton of Bern) is going to host some of the best international alpine ski racers from January 16th to 18th 2015. Eighty-four years after the first Lauberhorn ski race was held, this is the longest race in the Ski World Cup with a length of about 4.48 kilometres.

In February all the horseracing fans will meet in St. Moritz for the popular White Turf. Scheduled on February 8th, 15th and 22nd, the races on the frozen expanse of the Lake of St. Moritz are usually followed by more than 30,000 people against the magnificent backdrop of the mountains of the Engadine. A show for flaming hearts.
