Predicted to be one of the top destinations among Americans for summer travel this year, Switzerland prepares for the season with new openings, reopenings and updates.
The Kunsthaus in Zürich recently underwent a complete expansion, making it the largest museum in Europe. The expansion, led by David Chipperfield, serves as part of the city’s larger development plan to create a trail of cultural buildings throughout Zurich. A new art quarter in the city will also soon appear, with galleries like Eva Presenhuber and Galerie Brome vying for prime spots near the museum.
Also in Zürich, Pavillon Le Corbusier, Le Corbusier’s last completed work, will reopen for the season this month. The museum lies a short distance from La Réserve Eden au Lac, opened just before the pandemic following a 2.5-year restoration by Phillippe Starck.
Ski enthusiasts can expect new openings in Switzerland, as well. In Zermatt, a new ski lift will launch this year to complete an Alpine crossing between the Klein Matterhorn and Testa Grigia, in Italy’s Aosta Valley.
In Interlaken, beginning this December, Switzerland’s new GoldenPass Express train will connect the Bernese Alps ski resorts. The train will stop in Montreux, Gstaad and Interlaken and feature floor-to-ceiling windows. The sleek trains come from Ferrari designer Pininfarina and mark one of the most highly anticipated openings in Switzerland this year.
Head to Geneva this summer to walk through La Halle de Rive market and try its artisanal cheeses, charcuterie, bakeries and chocolatiers. Comprising 23 different merchants, the market fills with locals and visitors during the summer months.

Singer Palace Hotel Review
The idea of a boutique hotel in the center of Rome’s busiest crossroads may seem counterintuitive, but Singer Palace Hotel pulls off the impossible thanks to its minimalist exteriors, 30 gorgeous one-of-a-kind rooms and suites, smart-but-whimsical décor, simple-yet-elegant Roman cuisine and a stellar mixology-driven rooftop bar. It’s a delightful study in contrasts — a quiet, intimate and plush setting nestled within a maze containing many of Rome’s most noteworthy sites.

Time to Unwind
I recently returned from my second annual golf trip to Kiawah Island, where we enjoyed fantastic weather. Upon arrival, the group met for lunch at The Ryder Cup Bar, located at The Ocean Course, one of the top-ranked courses in the country. Luckily, we were not playing that day, as the wind whipped up and brought unscheduled douses of rain. As one of the caddies told me, wind gusts of 35 mph made the course unplayable. But some players braved the conditions as we sat comfortably inside enjoying our first lunch of the trip while chairs cascaded outside and players tried to keep their shots on track.
