Winter in Lugano

Winter in the region of Lugano can be truly magical. The gold and red colours of autumn give way to frost-covered glens and snow-capped peaks, the chill in the air makes your cheeks glow and nose tingle, while shimmering lights of cities beckon.

It's a season that lets you see places in a new light and offers new experiences that you just can't enjoy at any other time of year.

Every weekend from the 11th January to the 8th March 2020, if you visit one of the three activities, you can buy a voucher at only CHF 30.- to visit all three attractions by the 8th March 2020.
