How to be entertained in Switzerland

 If you are relocating to Switzerland you will surely not be bored in this entertainment haven.

If you are looking for a quieter entertainment experience, then you may want to check out one of the many museums or castles of the country. You can try the Ballenberg Open Air Museum for a blast from the past, or the Salt Mines of Bex to experience a miner’s world. There are always new exhibitions featured at the many Swiss museums. The Musees d’Art et d’Histoire contain some of the most prestige art collections in the country. If you are in Zurich you can try the Kunsthaus to view works by Monet and Alberto Giacommetti.
