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.

Brasserie Mon Chou Chou Review

What happens when three of the six French nationals residing in San Antonio get together? If they happen to be from a long line of proud French gourmands from three different regions of the country, they take what they know and make it something proudly Texan, while still adhering to their separate and collective culinary roots. That’s exactly what happened as a result of those three — Executive Chef Laurent Réa of Strasbourg, Philippe Placé of Chartres, and Jérôme Sérot of Lyon — meeting 20 years ago.

Recharge and Renew at The Spa at Four Seasons Philadelphia

As a mom, you’re not allowed to pick favorites. With a growing baby in my belly and a toddler guiding my daily routines, my own favorites often take a back seat as I make the daily choice to swap healthy foods for junk food cravings and toddler tunes for windows-down, volume-up jams. But when I heard my favorite spa was relaunching its facial program, I felt zero guilt — of the mom variety or otherwise — about taking a morning off and booking myself a nice, long, rejuvenating facial at The Spa at Four Seasons Philadelphia at Comcast Center.
