Basel, Riehen District

As the art world makes a yearly pilgrimage to Art Basel — a renowned mega-cultural linchpin in the northern Swiss city on the riverbank of the Rhine — others gather at venues in the city’s green scapes of Riehen, seeking more leafy attributes.

The Perfect Fit

According to the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Office of Advocacy, small businesses create two-thirds of net new jobs and account for nearly 48 percent of the U.S. private sector workforce. And small- and medium-sized businesses outpace all other sectors as one of the fastest-growing in the United States. InterContinental® Hotels Group (IHG) goes above and beyond to create opportunities for this segment with its IHG® Business Edge program, voted Best Small- to Mid-Sized Business Program in Global Traveler’s 2019 GT Tested Reader Survey awards.

Switzerland’s Pristine Winter Wonderland Delights Visitors

The story regarding the rise of winter tourism in Switzerland is well-documented: In 1864, hotelier Johannes Badrutt, who owned the now-defunct Pension Feller, seduced his English summer guests with a generous proposition. He was so convinced they would enjoy wintering at his St. Moritz property (most visited only during the summer), he told them if they were not having fun, he would gladly absorb the cost of their stay and travel. More than 150 years later, there is a no more glamorous and sought-after winter destination than the mountains of Switzerland, where boundary-pushing slopes combine with luxury amenities to create one of travel’s most iconic experiences: a ski holiday in the Swiss Alps.
