Culture in Switzerland

As Switzerland is made up of diverse regions in which different languages are spoken and different cultures have formed, it is not to easy to define a united Swiss culture. Large parts of the Italian, German, and French-speaking populations are strongly influenced by their neighbouring countries, as well as by Anglo-Saxon countries. Regional customs, however, are maintained throughout the country. Among those customs are music, dance, theatre, poetry, wood carving, and knitting. Many of these traditions are connected to the season (e.g. Fasnacht, or Carneval, in Basel, Escalade in Geneva, Sechseläuten in Zurich). A long tradition in Switzerland, next to music and dance, is the production of cheese. So a nice end to a lovely day on your ski holiday could be to restore your energy with an evening meal of cheese fondue or raclette.
