The magic of winter in the Lugano Region

Throughout the Lugano region in winter, nature, towns and villages are ready to welcome you in the typical southern Swiss climate. Everything seems to dress magically for the festivities and create an enchanting setting with the lights, sounds and scents of the winter season to celebrate the spirit of the end-of-year festivities together and ring in the New Year in good cheer; while nature becomes a painting with its contrasting colours and atmosphere, inviting everyone to take a relaxing break.

Let the magic of winter surround you: from the traditional Christmas markets, to a day of shopping, to traditional and new, Michelin starred restaurants, to numerous excursions to the city and to the nearby peaks. Enjoy all this and much more by visiting the stunning Lugano region and choosing from the numerous cultural attractions, interesting events and hotel accommodation that meet your needs.

A relaxed arrival in Lugano and respecting the environment is possible thanks to public transport. The true south of Switzerland is even closer to you thanks to new rail connections!
