Full text of "Switzerland, together with Chamonix and the Italian lakes;"

Google 



This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on Hbrary shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we liave taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 
We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain fivm automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attributionTht GoogXt "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liabili^ can be quite severe.

The HuiDBOOE fob Switzebiahd whb first isaued in 1863 Mtd 
Ib now in ila tveaty-sixtb edition. The long interval since the 
appearanue of the last edition, due to the QreitWir, has necessilst- 
ed * pOTtiGnlsrly thoroogli revision. The volame in divided into 
Beven sections, each of which has its table of contents and may be 
removed hj bending the book sharply back &t the beginning and 
end of each section and b; cutting through the connecting g&nze. 

The Mies ire based on the Siegfried Atlas and the Dntonr Map 
(p. ixvi), revised with the aid of other recent aathorities and from 
the Editor's own experience. — Popdi.atiom fignres are based on 
the censns of Dec. 1st, 1920. 

Fbicbs. Hotel -charges, railway and steamer fares, cab and 
guides' tariffs, etc., which have increased 100 per cent or more since 
1914, have been brought np to date according to the latest available 
Information, but It is iiardly necessary to warn the traveller that 
alabiUty in this respect is not yet to be expected. It should be 
remembered that the difficnlties of the economic sitnation press 
with particular severity nyon the hotel indnstrf . The prices given 
in the Handbook tor French, Italian, Oerman, and Austrian hotels 
must be regarded as relative only. 

The latest TNFOKUATion about travelling, health-resorts, winter- 
sports, etc, is obtainable gratis from tiie Swiss Federal Bailwaya 
(llbKegent St, London, S.W.I; Rue La Fayetle 20, Paris; 241 
Fifth Avenue, New York) or from the OfBce Suisse du Tonrisme, 
Zfirich, LOwen-Strasse 55. 

HneHTS above sea-level are given ia the text in English feet('), 
on the maps in metres (comp. p. xxxvi). — Distakcbs on railways 
ahd main roads are given in English miles, reckoned from the start- 
ing-point of the route; those on bridle-paths and mountain routes 
are expressed by the time taken by an average walker and are 
reckoned from point to point. 

HoTSLB. The aaterisks indicate those hotels which t1M>^I^^^^t

this Handbook. 

The Editor will highly appreciate any Cotihectioss or Si-ii-

already received from nnmerons correspondents, which he grate-

otFranceiulSSl, hut since the War the relative value of the French

the eieliange stands at present somewhat in Switierland's favour}. 
English bank-notes (but not treasury notes) are received almost 
everywhere at the tall value; but the circular notes, issued by 
many of the English and American banks, are safer tor carrying 
targe sums. The cheques issued by the American Express Co. and 
by the American Bankers Association may be recommended also. — 
In Savoi/ (Chanionix) railway and diligence tickets must be paid 
for in French money. Not more than 5000 fr. in bank-notes (of 
any country) or 10 fr. in silver may be taken out of France.

Tk6 Purity of the Atmosphere stands in direct ratio to the

' eanaed by the presence of manofactories or similar sources of 
atmospheric impurity, the nnmber of bacteria steadily diminishes 
as ve ascend, nntil at about G500' above the sea-level they entirely 
disappear. 

The Warmtii of the atmosphere is in inverse ratio to the height.

at 4930'. Anyone who mount* rapidly from the vallevi by a 
monntain-railway (e.g. to the Rigi or to D«tob) will be conacions 
of a diatinet diminntion of prennre. At the same time the greater 
intenaity of the ann'g rays is immediitelj (elt on the higher leiela, 
where 'sunborning' takes plaee raacb more rapidly than in the 
warmer valleys. 

The Mouliire in the air la by no nieana conatant at high levela, 
but evaporation is much more copioas than in the plains. This is 
especially obvious in the Orisons; fresh meat exposed to (he dry, 
pure, cold air of that region dries up withoot putrefying. 

The crest of the Alpa acta aa a huge dividing-wall between the 
Polar and the Eqnatarial Winds, the latter of which frequently 
deposit their moisture in the form of rainfall on the S. aide of the 
mountain-range. The best-known wiud is the FOhn, a warm 8. 
wind that blows with great impetuosity in E, Swil^erlitnd and the 
upper valleys oC the Bhine, Lintb, Keuss, and Rhone, and is fre- 
quently followed by sudden and heavy rain. On its approach the 
atmosphere appears thick and the mountains are enveloped in haze, 
though sometimea, on the contrary, they stand out with unuanal 
distinctness. The barometE^r mpidlj falls, while the thermometer 
rises; man and beast feel languid; and finally u storm bursts that 
is sometiraeB not without danger to the incautious. The Ffihii is 
reckoned to blow for 17 days in spring, H davs in summer, and 
10 days JD autumn. The cold N.E. wind, known" aa the Bise, which 
blows in the direction of Geneva, between the Bernese Oberlaud aud 
the Jnra, is little noticeable in soninier. Mention must be made of the 
numerous local winds that prevail at the higher levels and are of im- 
portance to invalids; e.g. the uniform morning-wind, blowing down- 
hill, in regular alternation with the evening-wind, blowing up-hill. 

The higher inhabited regions of Switxcrlaud may be divided 
into three zones. The lowest of these, the HiU Helton, between 
1300' and 2600' above the sea-level, embraces the banks of the 
lakes in H.E. and Central Switzerland and the adjacent monntain- 
slopes, on which the walnut-tree and chestnut floarish in full 
luxuriance. At the height of summer this region is often too hot, 
hut a pleasant refreshment is afforded by the late-baths. The 
warmest of the lakes ia the Lake of Constance {68-7S° Fahr.). The 
second, or JUToufUoinJIe^ion.cxtenda from 2600' to 3900'. Within 
its lltniti are nomerous towna and villages, while deciduous and 
-wniferous trees flonriah. Within the third, or Alpine Region

(3900' to 6550'), only coniFerans trees are found, and these but tu 
a limited extent. The monntain-climalc, with ita characteristicallj 
cold and rari fled atmosphere, reigns aapreme. Name roa a admirable 
resorts, rendered accessible even tor the vre»k and delicate iy 
means of mountain railways and diligences, are to be foaud on the 
monntainb and in the elevated Talleys oC this region. 

The moat important climatic consideration in judging of a health 
resort is its Height above the sea-lerel, thoagh occasionally other 
factors demand attention. Part of S. Switzerland, more especially 
the N. banks of the lakes of Oeneva and Lngano, has a warm, N. 
Italian climate, in consequence of ita admirable protection from the 
N. vitid, its low elevation above the sea-level, and the exposare 
to an (UDsnally powerful snn ; so that the pleaaantest seasons for a 
visit are spring and autumn, when the whey-cure and grape-care 
are in full swing. In SDmmer, visitors in search of health are glad 
to retreat to a station one stage higher. 

Switserland possesses few forests; and the Swiss forests have 
little effect in increasing the atmospheric moisture or in moderating 
the extremes of temperature. In these respects the large eipansea 
of water in S. and Central Switzerland are of more importance. The 
Canton of Appenzell, the oiiginal home of the whey-care, oecapies 
a somewhat peculiar position; for its extensive grassy slopes and 
pastures operate very much as forests do elsewhere, and produce 
a moist and warm climate in summer. 

Among the invalids who derive advantage from frequenting the 
elevated health-resorts of Switaerland, those subject to Rdmonary 
and Nervtrue Atimttds are by far the most namerons. For pul- 
monary and rheumatic patients and for all Qnable to stand strong 
currents of air, protection from the wind ia essential; and that, 
though frequently found in Alpine valleys, is scarcely to be looked 
for on isolated mountains. The banks of the Lake of Oeneva or the 
health-resorts in Appenzell are recommended to snfferers from dry 
catarrh. In cases in which infiammatory conditions of the respirat< 
ory organs ure accompanied by continued night-sweats, the patients, 
if free of fever, will find it advantageous to ascend to higher levels 
where the evaporating power of the dry climate encourages the ab- 
sorption of the cutaneous excretions. Invalids suffering from chronic 
catarrh accompanied by Emphytema most content themselves with 
heights averaging from 2600' to 3900'. Those with weak hearts, 
palpitations, and so forth must, of course, avoid ascents altogether. 
The elevated valleys of Davos and Arosa, as well as Lejain, are 
most frequented for Phthisig. The best time to visit them is winter, 
when, after the season's snow has fallen, they are free \tsso\ ^xi* 
dost and wind.

comfortably sit in the open air for hours at a time in sheltered 
spots. Id addition to the health-resorts many places have been 
developed in recent years as winter- resorts for sport (p. iiix),

IV. Hotels Emd Fenslona. 

Switzerland is famons for its hotels. The lai^e modem establiab- 
ments at Qeneva, Montreni, Veve;, ZOrich, Lncerne, Interlaken, 
8t. Moritii, etc., are models of organiiation ; the Bmaller hotels are 
often eqnall; well conducted, and indeed a really bad inn is rarely 
met with in French or German Switzerland. The temperance ('Bine 
CroBs') botels are cheap and veil spoken of. — The Swiss Hotel- 
keepers' Association publlahes a guide to the Swiss hotels (obtain- 
able gratis from the London ofBce of the Swiss Federal Bailwaja, 
p. t), in which the following categories are distinguished : Hotels 
of the Higheit Clata, witb rooms from 8 fr., breakfast ('petit' or 
'premier dSjenner'; tea or coffee, rolls, batter, and honey) S'/i 'r-, 
luncheon ('dfjenner' or 'SabelfrfthBtUck') 7 fr., dinner Cdlner') 8 fr., 
pension (board and lodging) from 21fr.;Firs(CZ(M8fl(rfeie, fi. from 
B or 7, B. 2-2'/,, L. or supper ('sonper') 5-6'/,, D. 6-7'/,, P. from 15

The traveller should aek for his bill in good time before his 
departure. Qratnitiea ma; be reckoned at 10-15°/o of the bill, it 
no special Berrices have been required. At large hotels tbe gratuities 
may be paid at the ofBce, and tbe diatribntian left to tbe management. 
In Italy gratuities have been replaced by a charge for attendance 
oIIO-SO%added to thebill. 

Inquiries for rooms in advance, nhicb ahonld be accompanied 
by a stamped addressed envelope or an international reply eoapon, 
are to nnmeroaa id tbe travelling season that the botcl-keeper, with 
the best will in the world, is unable to promise more than to do 
bis best. If rooms have to be countermanded, notice should be given 
as soon as possible, so that they may be disposed of to other vi site re; 
if this is not effected, damages may be claimed not only for (be 
reserved rooms but even for tbe meals that were not eaten. 

PensloiiB, or boBrding-bouses, are somewiiat cheaper, offering 
board and lodging from 8, 10, or 12 fr. per day. Tbe length of the 
intended stay shonid be mentioned, or an agreement made as to 
what notice is to be given. No reduction is made for raissed meals, 
bnt sandwiches for excnrsions are often provided instead. 

Froteatant Hostels ('Christlicbe Uospize') are quiet and 
simple boarding-houses, mnch patronized by ladies travelling alone, 
clergymeD, etc. Members of all confessioas, but not Jews, are wel- 
comed. Morning and evening prayers arc usually said, but attend- 
ance at these is not obligatory.

Motor Care (16 seats) and Diligences (the latter being rap- 
idly superseded), maintained by the Federal Post Office, traverse 
many of the main roads. The sorest method of reseiring seats in the 
height of the travelling season is to send Che amount of the fare (by 
telegram or money order). Oi^side aJid 'coup*' seats are the more ex- 
pensive. Posting is for 4-5 persons almost as cheap as the diligence ; 
vehicles ('Ejtraposten') may be ordered at the chief post offices. 
Liiggi^e must be ready 1 hr. before tbe time of departure; 10kg. 
(22 lbs.) is allowed free of charge. 

Steamboats ply on all the larger lakes and on the Shine be-

A moderate amount of luggage is conveyed nithout c}iarge. 

VI. Waking Toura. Monntaineering. 

In a monntainons conntry like Switzerland it is to pedestrians 
alone that many of the finest points are accessible, and even where 
driving or riding is practicable, walking is often more enjoyable.

Disposition of Time. The first golden rale for the walker 
is to start early. If strength permits, and a suitable halting-place 
is to be met with, a walk of one or two hoars may be accomplished 
before breakfast. At noon a moderate luncheon is preferable to a 
table-d'hote dinner. Rest should be taken during the hottest hours 
(12-3), and the journey then continued till 5 or 6 p.m. 

Equipment. A superabundance of luggage infallibly increases 
tbe delays, annoyances, and expenses of travel. To be provided 
with enough and no more, may be considered the second golden 
rule for the traveller. A light rucksack suffices to contain all that 
is necessary for a week's excursion. A light waterproof, a change 
of flannel shirts and woollen atockings, a few pocket-h%.a^e'c€a\^«^ 
a pair of slippers, and the 'objets de toilette' ma^ , ■«VCa »- >S.VO>*=

spirit-flask, stont gloves, bandages, a compass, tni coloared spcc- 
tocles to protect the ejei from the glare of the snow, should not 
be forgotten. Special attention should be paid to the boota, which 
miiat be strong, well-tried, and thoroagU; cofflfortable, aa the 
■lightest tendency to rub or blister ma; aerionaly mar the enjoj; 
' ment of the walk; they should be greased every evening. For gla- 
cier-lours and moDu tain-ascents the aolea mnst be supplied with 
nails, which, however, may be added on reaching the monntainons 
district. Puttees may be worn with advantage. Ladies wear breeches 
beneath the skirt, often dispensing with the skirt when the climbing 
starts. If first-class hotels are patronized, evening dress is essential. 
The traveller's reserve of clotliing should be contained in a port- 
manteau of moderate siae, which he mu easily wield himself when 
necessary, and which may be forwarded from town to town by post. 

For the more dilScult ascents an Ice Aax and ifqpe are necess- 
ary; the former may usnally be borrowed at the hotel and the latter 
is generally fumisbed by the guide. The beat ropes, light and strong, 
are made of silk or Manilla hemp. In crossing a glacier (which 
should be efi'ected before the sun has begun to melt the snow) the 
precaution of using the rope should never be neglected. It should 
be secnrely tied round the waist of each member of the party, leav- 
ing a length of about 10 yds. between each pair; it must not be 
allowed to trail on the ground. Ice-axes are made in varions forms, 
and are usually famished with a spike at the end of the handle, so 
that they can in some measure be used like an Alpenstock. 

Oeneral HintB. At the outset, the walker's performances 
should be moderate ; and even when he is in good trainiiig they should 
rarely exceed 10 hrs. a day. WheD a monntain has to be breasted the 
pedestrian should avoid 'spurts' and pnrsne the "eveo tenor of his 
way" at a steady and moderate pace ("chi va^ano ua sano; (SA 
va gana va lontano"). As another golden maxim for his guidance 
the traveller should remember that "When fatigue begins, enjoy- 
ment ceases". — On level ground an average pace is 2'/s-3V« H. per 
hour; when climbing, a height of 10OO'-115O' to the hour. These 
figures correspond with the distances given in the handbooks. In the 
case of short walks ample time is allowed; in the mountains average 
times are given, which some will find excessive and others too scant. 

To prevent the feet from blistering during a protracted walking 
tour, they may be rubbed morning and evening with brandy and 
tallow. A warm foot-bath with bran will be found soothing after a 
long day's march. Soaping the inside of the stocking is aoother 
well-hnown safeguard against abrasion of the skiD. 

Mountaineering among the higher Alps should not be attempted 

before the middle or end of July, nor at any period after a long 

•tinuanca of rain or snow. Qlaciers should be traversed as early

The trsTelieria cuationed Bgainat aieeplng in chaletB, anleBsitis

in "a fragrant bed ol ba;", cold night-air piercing abandaiit aper- 
tures, ringing of cow-beils, granting of pig^, and nndiscarded gar- 
ments hardly condDce to refreshing slumber. As a rule, therefore, 
the night previous to a mountain expedition shonid be spent either 
at an inn or at one of the clnb-hnts which the Swiss Alpine ClQb 
"and other associations have erected for the convenience of travellers. 
The senseless habit of breaking empty bottles and scattering the 
fragments has led to inconvenience and even danger near some of 
the more frequented amnmita. Bottlea when done with should be 
deposited in some suitable spot where they will be out of the way. 

Mountaineers should provide themselves with freah meat, bread, 
and wtae or apirits tor long expeditions. Tbe chalets osuslly afford 
nothing but Alpine tare (milt, cheese, and stale bread). Glacier- 
water should not be dmo^ except in small quantities, mixed with 
wine or cognac. Gold milk is also safer when qualified with spirits. 
One of the best beverages for quenching the thirst is cold tea. 

Over all the movements of the pedestrian the weather holds 
despotic away. The barometer and weather-wise natives should be 
consulted when an opportunity offers. The blowing down of the 
wind from the mountains into the valleys in tbe evening, the melt- 
ing anay of the clouds, the fall ot fresh snow on the mooDtaius, 
aod the ascent of tbe cattle to the higber parts ot their pasture are 
all signs of Ane weather. On the other hand it is a bad sign it tbe 
distant mountains are dark bine in colour and very distinct in out- 
line, if the wind blows up the mooutaius, and if the dust rises in 
eddies on the roads. Westwindsaiao usually bringrain. Telegraphic

Motoring. Hotorists entering France and Switzerland must 
hold a dririDg licence and a certificate of car regiatration for either 
country and must deposit the amount of the customs duties on the 
motor-car or motor-cyele. These formalities are lightened for 
members of the Automobile Atsociation (Fanum House, Whitcomb 
St., London, W.C.2; for motors, entrance fee 21s., annual sab- 
scriptlon 4£s., for motor-cycles or cycle-cars lOs. 6d. and 21s.) or 
ihe Royal AutomoMte CSu6 (Fall Uall,S.W. 1; annual sub Bcriptioa 
for associate-members 42g.), with which the customs duties may 
be deposited and from which the entry permit ('triptyque', or, for 
more than one country, 'carnet de passage') is obtained. When more 
than one cunntry is being visited, motorists who obtain a 'carnet de 
passage' deposit the duly (or the country only where the Tiighest 
duty is payable. For the 'triptyqoe' tbe A.A. charges 25*. for one 
country and 5g. for each connlry extra, for the 'carnet de passage' 
35«. ; no charge is made for these by the R.A.C. The importation of 
motor-cars into S wit serland, otherwise than by means of a'triptyque' 
ora'cametdepasaage', is at present forbidden. The motorist should 
also obtain from tbe A.A. or E,A..C, an 'international driving pass', 
which takes the places of a driving Ocence and certificate of car 
regiatration in France and Switzerland as well as in most other 
European eoontries. The cost of tbia pass, including the plates 
which must be carried on Jiritieh cars when travelling abroad ia 
26s. if there is one driver, and Ta. extra for each additional person

«?iii CTCUNG. 

Many ro«di in SwiteerUad tre entirely forbiddeo to motor-cira 
and motor-cycles. Ou Snudtya, however, tliiaregtiktioi] is gaapeDded. 
The Canton of QriaoiiB (except the Haloja-St. Moriti road, p. 423), 
the mountain roads in Valais, and certain moontaiu roads in Uri 
and O-larus are closed to motor-trafflc. All the great paBBee are 
barred to motors, except- the St. Qotthard, Simplos, and Brflnig 
Pasaes, .which are open at certain times only. — Fall information 
in the annual Guide de V AuiomobUiste (Antomobile BeTne, Berne). 

SwlBB roada vary in condition, largely owing to the action of 
frost and snow; hence the diametrically opposite reports with re- 
gard to the condition of certain roada. On the whole it may be 
B*id that tbey tiave been well constructed and are indifferently 
maiotAiued. The mountain roads are aa a rnle open from June to 
September incluBively, though that of course depends on the melt- 
ing of the snoiT and the time tbat must ensue to bring the roads 
into good dry condition. Information must be sought locally as 
to the state ot the roads at any particular time. The beat time for 
the paases is Jnl; aud early Angnat: in inid-Angaat road-mending 
beginB. — The rule of the road is to keep to the right in meeting, 
to the left In overtaking another vehicle. 

OyoUag. The unattached cyclist on entering France and 
SwitEcrland mast deposit the amount of the cnstoms dnty on his 
machine at each frontier. Members ot the CydisU' Touring Club 
(280 Euston Road, Loodon, N.W. 1 ; annual subacription 10 «,, en- 
trance fee 1 «.) are spared this formality, provided they obtain a 
cnatoms ticket from their elnb and deposit 10 «,, the amount of 
tbe Swiss duty. Cycles in France must bear the name and address 
ot the owner. 

The districts beat adapted for cycle-tonrs in Switzerland are the 
hill-oountry in N. and W. Switzerland, the neighbourhood of the Lake 
of Constance, the lake-regions of Central Switierland and the Berueae 
Oberland, and theenviroDSof theLakeof Qeneva. Noonewhoianot 
fairly strong and in good condition should attempt the Swiss passes 
or monntaiQ roada. In any case the machine should be well-tried 
and tmsted rather than new, and the brakes must be powerful and 
reliable. The practice of tying a branch or sapling behind the cycle 
to check its velocity down hill is forbidden. In some towns and vil- 
lages steep, uarrow, or bnsy streets are closed to cycles. 

Oolt The beet golf-links in Switzerland are those at Samaden 
(p. 431 ; the only 18-hole coarse) Montana (p. 341), and Montreux 
(Aigle, p. 286). There are conraes also at Flims (p. 466), Laatanne

Winter Sports, which are CBrried on with great Bpirit &t 
prMticallj all of the Swias winter-rcBorte, include skating, carl- 
ijtg, tobogganing and bobslcighiag, iki-ing (pron. 'ihe-ing'), and 
icB-hochflf (bandj). All these aporia may be enjojed at the older 
and more important stations and there are few resorts 3000' and 
more above sea-level where skating, curling, tobogganing, and ski- 
ing are not practised. Competitions for cnpe, trophieB, or certificates 
of proficiene; are held annoall; at some oF the leading centres of 
sport, and accommodation at these is frequently dilBcult to obtain in 
the high season nnless secured a long time in advance. Provision is 
made everywhere also for the inexperieoced and the nnambitions 
and the necessary skis, toboggans, curling stones, etc., are to be had 
on hire. The season lasts From December to March inclasive, Jan- 
uary being the beat month; at some of the highest stations it be- 
gins a little earlier or lingers a little later. 

Seitihb. The chief prizes competed for in Switzerland by 
skaters in the English style are the St. Moritz Bowl, the HougbtoD 
Cop, and the E.F. Benson Cup ; for international skating, the Mor- 
rison Cup and the Lytlon Cop. — TonoaoiNiNQ includes both the 
exciting sport of lee-mnning on 'skeletoEs', which impiies some 
skill and practice, and the less ambitious snow-rnnning or road- 
toboggaoing on the small sleds known as 'luges'. A 'tailiDg party' 
is a nuinber of 'lagea' towed by a horse-sleigh. Lageing or snow- 
mnning obtains wherever there are snow-covered slopes. — Bob- 
SLEiaHiHo is practised on ice-runs with toboggans of strength and 
length carrying a team of four or five. — Sei-thq, thongh introduced 
into Switierland about 1902 only, has there become perhaps the 
most popular sport, revealing to its devotees winter landscapes of 
unimaginable beanly. In 'skikjSring' the ski-er is towed by a horse 
(especially practised in the Engadine). The British ski champion- 
ship is held annually in Switierland, and other important events 
are the races (or the Army, Navy, and Air Force Cup, the Roberts 
of Kandahar Cup, the Alpine Ski Challenge Cup, the Khone Talley 
Ski Cup, etc. — Cukuho. The great Swiss events are the Inter- 
national Curling Bonapiel and the Jackson Cup. 

The following are the best known winter-sport centres. Chief

mil IX. mSTOBT AND OONSTITDTION. 

iif that piTiod eiista in the Komuiic diklect, which is still spoken 
in some parts at Switzerland. 

About 400 A. D. a great irmptioo of barbarians swept throog^ 
the peaceful valleys of the Alps, and Hans, Bargundiaus, Alemanni, 
and Ostrogoths in succession settled in different parts of the coontry. 
The AleTaanTii occupied the whole of N. tiwitzertand, where Ger- 
man is now spoken; the Biirgundiana the W. part, where French 
is spoken; and the Oftrogottu S, Switzerland, where Italian and 
Romansch are now spoken. These races were graduully subdued 
by the Fr<Mikg, who, however, did not take posaession of the countrj 
themselves, bat governed it by their officers. During this period 
Christianity was introdneed, the montisteries ot I>uen{is (p. 471), 
St. GaU (p. 57), and fJiiuUdein (p. 92) were founded, and dnkes 
and counts were appointed as vicegerents of the Frankisb kings. 

After the dissolution of tbc great Frankisb ejupire, the E. half 
of Switzerland, the boundary of which extended from Eglisau over 
the Albis to Lucerne and the Grimsel, was united with the duchy 
of Alananjiia or Swdbia, and the W. part with the kingdom of 
Bttrgundy (912). After the downfall of the latter (1032) German 
Einperors took possession of the country, and governeit it by their 
vicegerents the Dukes of Zlhringeu (p. 154), who were perpetually 
at enmity with tbc Vurgundian nobles and therefore favoured the 
inhabitants of the towns, and were themselves the founders of sever^ 
new towns, such as Fribourg, Berne, and Burgdorf. 

As the power of the emperors declined, and the nobles, spiritual 
and temporal, became more ambitions of independence and uiore eager 
to fill their cofleis at the eipense oE their neighbours, the Swiss 
towns and the few country-people who had succeeded in preserving 
their frccdnm from serfdom were compelled to consnlt their safety 
by entering into treaties with the feudal lords of the soil. Thns the 
inhabitants of ZDrieb placed themselves under the protection of the 
then unimportant Gmnta of Hdbsbwg, with whom tlie 'Three Can- 
tons' of Uri, Schwye, and Unterwalden were also allied. In 1231 and 
1240 lottersof independence were granted by Emperor Frederick II. 
to Uri and Schwyz, and after Count Rudolph of Habtburg had 
become emperor he confirmed the privileges of the former la 1274, 
while fiehwyz and Unterwalden still continued subject to the Habs- 
bnrg supremacy. 

After the emperor's death in 1291 the Forest Cantons (comp. 
p. 118)CDrmed their first league tor mutual safety and the protection 
of their liberty against the growing power of the House of Habsburg. 
Rudolph's son Albert in particnlar endeavoured to rear the limited 
rights be enjoyed in these districts into absolute sovereignty, and 
to incorporate them with his empire. 

The ancient cantons therefore embraced the cause of the rival 
moiiareh Adolph of Nattatt, who confirmed their priyileges. Vic-

their privileges, bat does not appear to have treated them with niDCh

tion ot "William Tell jcomp. p. 101).

After the aaaassination of Albert by John of Swabiit in 1308, 
Eiaperor Henry VII. , who was also an opponent of the Habs- 
burgers, conferred a charter of iodependence on tbe Foregt Cantons. 
The Honse of Habsbnrg regarded this hb an infringement of their 
rights, and sent a powerful army against these cantons, which after 
the death of Henry had declared their adherence to Lonis the Ba- 
variim, tbe opponent of Frederick tbe Handsome. This army was 
destroyed at Morgarten (p. 91) in 1315. Subsequent attempts to 
subject the country to the supremacy of the House of Habsburg were 
fmstrated by the victories of the Swiss at Sempach (p. 15) in 13S6, 
at NSfeU (p. 76) in 1388, and at the Slou (p. 106) in 1405. 

In the Burgundian parts of the country loo the nobility were 
jealous of tbe ipcreasing importance of the towns, and therefore 
attempted to conquer Berne, but were defeated by the citiiens at 
Lavipen (p. 247) in 1339. 

In 1354 a confederacy was formed by eight independent districts 
and towns, which soon became powerful enough to aasume the offen- 
sive, and at length actually wrested tbe hereditary domain of Habs- 
borg from the Dntes of Anstria, who tried in vain to recover it. 

Even CharUe tbe Bold, Duke of Burgundy, the mightiest prince 
of his time, naa defeated by tbe Swiss at the three battles of 
" Grandson (1476, p. 243), Moral (1476, p. 246), and Nancy, while 
at an earlier period a large body of irregular French and other 
troops, which had been made over to Austria by the King of France, 
sustained a severe check from the confederates at St. Jakob on the 
Birs (1444, p. 10). 

In the Swabian war (1499) the bravery and unity of the Swiss 
achieved another triumph in tbe victory of Z*»cnacA(p.224). At that 
period their independence of the emperor was formally recognized, 
but they continued nominally attached to the empire down to 1648. 

The last-named victory formed a fittiug t«rminatiuD to a a^<^ 
cesafnl career of two centuries, tbe most glorioua ui ftife\i\s\tw^ lA-

Switzerland about the beginning of the 16tb century; bat the bitter 
jealonaies thna sown between the Roman Catholic and the Reformed 
Cantons were attended with most disastroas conseqnencea, and in 
the ciril wara which ensued bloody battles were fought at Kappet 
(p. 89) in 1531, at ViUmtrgen in 1656, and during the Toggcn- 
bnrg war in 1712, 

Traces of unflinching bravery and of a noble spirit of self- 
aacriflce are observable in individual Instances even at the close of 
the IStb centnry, as exeiDplided by the alfaira of Bothenthana 
and Slant, but thR national vigour was gone. The resistance 
of Individuals to the invasion of the French repnblicaDS proved 
fruitless, and the Helvetian ReptMin was funnded on the rnins of 
the ancient liberties of the nation. In 1803 Napoleon restored the 
cantonal system, and iu accordance with resolutions passed by the 
Congress of Vienna in 1815 the constitution was remodelled. The 
changes introduced In consequence of the revolntion of July 1830 
were unhappily the forerunners of the civil war nf the Sondcrbund, 
or Separate League, in November 1847; but this was of short 
duration, and on 19th April, 184S, a new Fedepol Canstitatioa 
was inaugnraled. 

The supreme authority is the Federal Agaembly (Bnndes- 
Tersammlung), the seat of which is nt Berne. It is formed by the 
union of the Naiifrnal Council (National-Rat) and the Council 
of the Stales (StSnde-Rat) ; the former consisting of 1S9 deputies 
elected for three years in each canton, in the proportion of one for 
each 20,000 of the population; the latter of 44 representatives of 
the cantonal governments (two for each canton and one for each balf- 
canton). The eiecutive power is deputed to the Federal Council 
(Bundes-Rat), whose seven members are elected for three years by 
the Federal Assembly and include the President and theVice-Pre.ii- 
dent of the Confederation, who hold their offices for one year only. 
The Assembly controls the foreign relations of the Confederation 
and its military affairs, and also enacts laws, subject, however, to 
the Meferendum, or vol* of the people en masse, an arrangement 
introduced iu 1874. So far uniformity has been attained only in 
certain important branches of commercial law. The federal army 
comprises the AuBsug or Elite, including citizens between the ages 
of SO and 32, the Landwehr, consisting of citizens between 3S and 
40 years of age, and the Laitdetwrta, between the 40th and the 
tSth year. There are annual training-periods and repetition-courses

B&leoT Basle, Ger.Batel (840' -935'; pop. 135,976), the eftpital 
of the half-CBnton Bus el-Sttidt, lies on both bank!< uf the^fti'ne,wliicb, 
tarniag to the N,, bore enters tbe upper Rhenish plain. On the left 
bank lies Groes-Baael, od two hills separated by tbe valley of the 
Biratg, which, from time iiumemoriu!, has marked the trnffic rente. 
On the right bank lies Klein-Basel, with nnmcrons mannfactorics. 
In A. D. 374 BAle, along with Angnsta Kanrica (Angst, p. 16), is 
mentioned as a Roman fort (Bagilia, royal residence), and soon 
afterwards it became a bishop's see. In the 10th centnry it belonged 
to Bnrgnndy, along with which it was annesed in 1006 to Germany 
by the Emperor Henry II. The strnggling Tuiddlc classes freeil 
themselves from the doniiDlon of the bishops and the nobles, and 
after years of flghting with (lie house of HabshuTg the town became 
a nicniber of the Swiss Confederation in 1501. In 15E9 the town 
accepted the Reformation. The university, founded in 1460 by 
Pope Pins II. (.Xneas Sylvins), became celebrated nnder Erasnins 
of Kotterdum (1531) as tbe chief seat of humanism and was dis- 
tingnished later by outstanding scholars. Bale is after Zltrieh 
Switzerland's chief place of commerce. Its silk ribbon weaving is 
of ancient tame, in addition to which tbe chemical industry flonrishes. 
NnmeroDs edncational and philanthropic institntions testify to the 
social sense of the citizens, 

Fonr Bridgea cross the river. Tbe chief traffic goes oyer the 
MiUlere BrUcke (PI. D, E, 3; 1906), a granite stmctnre with six 
arches, on the site of the old wooden bridge dating from tbe middle 
ages. Higher np is the iron Wetta.em-Braeke (PI. F. 4; 1879), 
with three spans; at each end are two large griffins, the beraldie 
symbol of Bile, Below the central bridge is tbe flye-arched Vntere 
Srilclce or Johanniler-Brilcke (PI. D, 1; 1382), A little above 
the town is the bridge used by tbe Junction Railnay (p. 3). 

The 'Minster (PI. E, 4), a pictnresqne edifice of red sand- 
stone, with a brilliantly colonred roof and two slender ton-en,, 
is conspicuous in eyery view of the city. Down to ttie"B,%loTTO».^N.<ni. 
(1689) it was the cathedral of the old bishopric o( Tvae- U»> ^w"!*"

ot the canton, with 30,064 inhabitants. It in picfureaqnely aitnated 
on billa which rise from the ri);ht bank of the Rhine. The nnnter- 
ona oriel-windows of the old patrician honaes and the public fonn- 
tains give an old-faahioned air to the inner town. Of the old forti- 
fications there atill remain the Manot and two gate-towers. The 
town owes its indnstrlal prosperity to Helnrich Moaer, who in 
1863-66 began the turbine-worka id the Rhine, which were flniahed 
in 1899-1900 and generate an electric power of 8000 h.p. for the 
apinning-mills, machine works, and other factories. 

The Minster (Fl. B, 2), a Romanesqne basilica (12th cent.), once 
an abbej-chnrch, is now a Protestant pariah church. The cloisters, 
partly Romanesque, partly Gothic, contain an old bell, cast in 1486, 
the inscription of which ("Vivos voco, mortnos plango, fulgura 
fi'angu") anggested Schiller'a beaatifnl 'Lied von der Olocte'. — 
In the Vordergaase is the Haia zum Sitter, a pictnresqne bnllding 
with oriel- window a, decorated with paintinga on the facade by 
Tobias Slimmer (1570). — The Old EeOhaus (PI. 6; B, 2) haa a 
fine panelled room of 1625, with a carved door. In the cantonal 
archives (adm. 11-12 gratis; at other times 1 fr.) is a large antique 
onyx, representing a goddess of peace, in a rich 13th cent, frame. 

In the Pronwag-Platz{Pl.A,B, 2), No. 24, is the ffroMC flbu*, 
an interesting patrician mansion, erected in the 14th cent, and re- 
built in the 16th and ITth centuries. — To the 8., in the direction 
of the Herrenacker, on the left, stands the New Rathaus, formerly 
the 'Gewerbeballe' (PI. 2 ; B, 2), a Renaiaaance strnctnre of the 17th 
centnry. It was reconstructed in 1914 by Moser of Karlarnhe and 
has a beautifnl door and a facade adorned by frescoea. — The Im- 
Ihumeum (PI. 3 ; A, 2), in the Herrenacker, erected and preaented 
to the townby J.C.Imthnrn (d. 1881), containa a theatre, apictnre- 
gallery, and concert-rooms. Oppoaitc ia the Muternn (Fl. 5; A, 2), 
with antiquities (inclnding finds from the Schweiaershild , the 
Keaalerloch near Thayngen, etc.), natural history and ethnographical 
specimens, and the town-Hbrary. 

The Uunot (PI. B, 2), with walls 16' thick and vaulted casemates, 
erected in 1515-82, commands a fine view of the town (adm. free 
8-12 & 1.30-6, at other times 50 c). A winding roadway ascends 
to the platform.

The Bahnhlf-Steabne fPl. H-i:, 3i. the ehiif Ihoronghfare of

(PL ¥, 4), where Lavster (d. 1801) was |inslor for 23 years {gniTe 
on the N. side ; on the tower, a large eleetric clorb, with a dial S9' 
in diameter). 

The BCnKLi-pLATZ (PI. E, 4), on the lake (band in snmmer un 
Snn. 10.30-11.45 a.m.), with gardens and (he Ceiaer Fountain, 
named after the donor and deHigned by Brilllinann (1918), is ad- 
joined by a terrace; to the ri)[ht is the »teariiboat-qnay, to the 
left the Qnai-Bracke. *View across the lake of the snow-capped 
Alps: to the left is the broad Glumisch ; at the bark of the LIntbtal 
rise the Bifcrtenstock and the Tndi, in front of these the Claridcn ; 
then the donble-pcaked Scheerhom ; in the furesronnd the Mjthen ; 
farther to the ri^rht the two Windgiillcn and above the depression 
between the Kaiscrstock and the Ross-Stock rises the sharp pyramid 
of the Bristenatock ; above the Albis to the left of the Detliberg 
appears the Uri-Eotsfoek and, farther away, the Engelberg Alps. 

The Alpes-Quai (PI. D, 3) aiid its eontinnation the Hyteen- 
QcAi (PLC, S), with pleasant promenades, skirt the lake to the right, 
extending to the Bel/vmr Park (p. 37). Near the beginning of the 
qnay, to the right, is the Tinthalle (restaurant, see p. 35 ; coneerta,

To the E. of the Bflrili-Platz the Qiial>Bruake iPl. E, 4), 
coBstrncted in 1883, crosses the Limm&t De^r its issae from the 
labe. Belov (he bridge is the Bamchame (restaurant), a small 
pentagonal island, shaded vith trees and connected b; a bridge 
with the Stadthaia-Quai, on irhieh stands the large Central Pott 
Office, with its high oloclr-tower. Next to it U the Tovin Bail 
(PI. P, 4), adjoining the Fran-Mil nater-Kirche, in Gothic atyle. — 
On the right bank of the late also promenades (Ulo-Quai and 
Seefeld-Quai) lead past the Stadt - Theater (PI. D, 5) to the ZOrich- 
hom Park (BO min.; p. 43). 

The next bridge below the Qnai-Bracke is the fonr-arched 
M^Dster-Br^cike (PI. F, 4). Adjacent ace the Ih-au-MttvMer- 
Eirche, of the 12th cent., restored in 1912, on the left bank, and 
the former Wasaer-Kirche (1479-84), now a warehouse, on the 
right bank. The bridge with these two cbnrcbes and the &rosa- 
Mflnster towering abore them form a pretty picture ot oldZHrich. 

The Romaneaqne Gross -Miinster (Fl. F, 4), to which a flight 
of steps leads, was creeled in the ll-13th centuries. The upper 
stories of the towers are Gothic, and in 1799 they were crowned 
with helmet-shaped tops with gilded Boweis. On the W. tower is 
enthroned Charlemagne (he is said to have fonndcd the chapter 
school). In the N. transept is a aimple monament to Che BSrger- 
ijieister Waldmann, who was executed in 1489. Adm. and organ- 
recitals, see p. 37. The cloisters (early 13th cent.), restored in 1851, 
are shown by the porter of the adjacent girls' school, in the gronnda 
of which they are now enclosed. 

On theS. sideof the Wasser-Kirche is a bronze atatue, by Natter, 
of ZTvingli (PI. F, 4), pastor of the Gross-Mflnater from 1519 till 
his death in 1631 (comp. p. 89). — At the Rathaiis-Brttcke (PI. F, 
G, 4) are the Bathaua, a freestone stmclure of 1698 (in the vesti- 
bnlc, a marble busfcof Gottfried Keller, sec p. 41), and the Mewch- 
halle. Opposite are the Mu»eam (with a reading-room) and the 
Sckneggen CliA. — Farther on, at the Wollcahof, by the Urania 
Bridge (PI. G, 4), is the Peatalosiianum (new building in course of 
conatmctiou), containing the Swiss educational exhibit] on and Peata- 
lozzi's study (open free on weekdays, 10-lS and 2-5). 

From the Quai-Brflcke we ascend the KAmt-Strassi^ (PI. E-H, 
5, 6) to the E., then to the right to the Hohe Promenade (PI. 
E, 5, 6j, an avenue of limes, with the bust of Ndgdi (d. 1836), the 
Eomposer. Beautifal view (best by nioming-light) froni the little 
temple at the end. Adjacent is the Old Cemelery, witVi \.\ic 'E-ng-

ally the two banks were joined together in a solid mass. Lofly 
peaks, often snow-clad, peep throngh the gorges at intervals, to the 
S. rises the huge Uri-Botstock. 

By the sharp angle which juts into the lake from the W. hank 
rises the Mylh/atateiii, a rock 80' high, bearing an inscription ("The 
Forest Cantons, to Schiller the Bard of Tell, 1859"), We have now 
reached the classic scenes associated with the heroes of Swiss legend. 
Un the slope of Ihe Seellsberg (p. 104), ■/« '>''' obovc the steamer- 
pier, is the grassy clearing called the (^4^/4 M.)B,G.tIi (1646'), where, 
at daybreak on Nov. 8tb, 1307, Werner StaiilTacher of Steinen in 
Schwyz, Erny Anderhaldcn of Melchtal in UiilcrBiildeu, Walther 
Fllrst of Attinghansen in Uri, and thirty other men are sajiposcd to 
have assembled and sworn to drive out their Hahsharg opprcBsors. 
This spot, withlhe5a(iiftaMs(rfmls.), belongs to the Confederation. 
In the grounds, 5 min. E., lower down, is a block of granite with

*PjlatHfl (6995'), a wild and serrated niHSflit at chalky lime- 
stone, formerly known as PralcmUnt ('fractns mons'), has been a 
famons point of view since the middle of the last century. The 
chief, though not the highest, peak is the Esel (6862'), whence 
ridges and aretes radiate W. to the Oberhaujit (6910'), and down 
to the KKmsenftoni (6366'), E. to the Steigli-E(fg (6289'), 8.E. to 
Ihc 2'(»n;i»Aor«(6995'),irid(ie»-/eW (6717'), and (?nep/'B(rtn(6299'). 
1 n heathen titaes the Guepfstein was a mcrvd mouutain. According 
Iri Che legend, the corpse of Pontins Pitatn nas thrown into a. small 
lake (now dried np) on the Upper Brflndlen Alp (4987'). The flora 
of the Pilatns is rery rich {300 species). 

The railway ascends from the lower station (1443'), traversing 
meadows, orchards, and wood. The train crosses the gorge of the 
Wolfort and passes throngh several tnnnels to (43 min.) Amsigen 
(4430'), a passing and watering station with pnni ping- works which 
force water (o the Pilatns -Enlm, 3360' ahove. The train noyr 
ascends throngh the debris on the Matt-Alp (behind as the OUr- 
nisch and then the Titlis and the Trift district come into view). 
TuTDing to the right, we mount the steep rocky slope through four 
tunnels. The terminns FiltUiis-Eiiim (6790') lies on the ridge 
between the Esel and the Oberhaupt. 

An easy path, with steps, leads from the HOte! Bellevne to 
(6 min.) the top of the "BBel (6960'), enclosed bj a wall, with 
a trigonometrical signal. The view, though slightly less extensive 
than that from the Kigi, surpasses it Jn grandenrowing to its greater 
[iropioquity to the snow-clad Alps, conspienons among which 
are the Todi and Claridcn (31 M.), the Titlis with its snow-mantle 
(S'/i M.), and the WctterhOrner (E5 M.). — Between the two hotels 
is the path leading to the Oberhaupt (KriesJlocb, p. 116). A tuunel

AltdorfoT Aliorf (1518'; pop. 4163), the capiUl of Canton Cri, 
lies in a fruit-growing valley surrounded by imposing mountains. 
This pleasant little town is the traditional scene of the exploits of 
Wiliiam Tell, the liberator of Switzerland from the Austrian joke 
(comp. p. usiii). A Dionnment to the intrepid archer, designed 
by B. Kissling (1S95), stands in the main sqnarc, in front of the 
old tower (dating perhaps from the Alemannic period, 5t!i cent.; 
wall-paintings). About 5 min, 8., reached bj the Golthard-Str., 
to the right, is the cantonal HtBtoricai Mu»eum (adm. 50 c.). The 
Jauch mansion was Suvorofi's headquarters in 1799 (comp. p 125; 
memorial tablet). A fine view of Altdorf and the Reass valley is 
obtained from the Waldegg pavilion, near the Capuchin monastcrj 
(1650'), 5 rain. N. of the square. Above lies the Bannwald, a 
'sacred grove', in which the woodman's axe is proscribed, as ii 
protecU Altdorf from falling rocks (see Schiller's Tell, Aet il'. 
Scene 3); but the wood was partly destroyed by an avalanehe 
in 1920.

seat of the Swiss government since 1818. lis canton is the second 
largest in ai'ea and contains the largest population in the Confedera- 
tion. The city, in a striking situation, is bnilt on a peninaula of 
sandstone-rock, formed by the Aare, which Bows 100' below. Lofty 
liridgss connect it with the modern quarters on the hills of the right 
bank. The streets in the old part of the town are flanked with arcades 
('I^aben*), which form a eoyered way for foot passengers. Among 
the chief attractions of Heiae are its namerons foantains, mostly 
dating from the 16th century. In other respects also it retaina more 
mediEeval teatnres than anv other large town in Switzerland. 

Pounded by Duke Berthold Y. of Zlhrini^cn in 1191, the town lecame 
independent of the Kmpire in 1318, In 136» Berne Joined the Confederation, 

embraced tho Reformed filth. 

Berne is celebrated for its splendid •Visivs of trr Ai.rs (from the 
Bnndes-Terrasae, the KIciiicSchanzc, Schintli, tlie Caalno Terrace, etc.), and

(1424-79), the defender uf Moral against Charles tbe Bold (comt'i. 
p. S46), was erected in 1S97 from a design hy Max Iica. On the 
left, at the beginning of the Spitalgaase (see below), is the Ghvrch 
of the Holy Gho^, built by N. Scbiltkneoht in the French baroque 
atyte (1726-29). — The Scbwanenguae leads hence to the ^Klelne 
Sohaiize <P1. C, 4), gardens laid oot on the site of a redoubt, with a, 
superb view of the Alps (monntain-indicalfli' on the upper terrace). 
A Bomewbat singular monament, by Rene de Saint-Marc eanx (1909), 
eonimeraorates the foundation of the International Postal Union 
at Berne in 1874. 

To the £. of the Kleine Schanze, supported by huge walls on 
the edge of the cliff, rises the *BiiiideBliana, or Federal Palace 
(PI, D, 4; adm., see p. 154], a handsome edifice in the Florentine 
Benaissanee style. The Western Block, bailt h; Friedrich Studer in 
1851-55, contains the political department, the departments of the 
interior and Justice, and the federal library. In front nf it, in the 
Bnndesgasse, is a fountain-Sgnre of Bema, by R. Christen (1858). 
1'hc Central Block or Parliament Souie, a fine domed structure by 
II. Aner (1894-1901), contains the chambers of the two legislative 
assemblies (the 'Nattonalrat' and the 'StSuderat', comp, p. luiv; 
illus. guide Ifr.). Outside the entrance are two colossal seated bronze 
ligDres uf Ancient and Modem Historians, by Keymond; above the 
pc:dImL'nt rises the statue of Swiss Independence, with allegorical 
tigures of the T.egislatiTC and Eiecutive Powers, by Niederhauscrn. 
Handsome staircase. The chamber of the Xationalrat is embellished 
with a large fresco by Ch. Giron, 'The Cradle of the Confederation' 
(bird's-eye tiew of the Lake of Lnceme). On the S, Ironl are the arms 
of tbe twenty-two cantons, in mosaic, and statues of a Ploughman, 
a Merchant, a Scholar, a Soldier, an Artisan, and an Artist. The 
Eastern Block, erected from Aner's designs in 1888-92, accom- 
modates the departments of war, trade, industry, and aericnlture. — 
Passages between the three buildings lead to the BuTMes- Terraste, 
adjoining the S. facade, 130 ft, above the Aare. 

The chief centre of tralSc is where a series of streets, the 
Spitslgaase, Marlitgasse, Kramgasse, and Oerechtigkeitsgasse, which 
extend from the Bnbenfacrg-Platz to the Nydeck Bridge, a distance 
of nearly a milr, is crossed by the thoroughfare connecting the 
two great bridges. lo the Rpitiloisbk is the Bagpiper Fountain, 
dating from the early 16th century. The Baren-Plalz and Waisen- 
haus-Platz (PI. D, 3, 4) marked the W. limit of the town down to 
1346. In the BSren-Platz is the fear Fountain, by R. Monger 
(Berne's cognizance, the bear, is to be seen alt over the city). At tbe 
N. end of the Waisenhans-Flatz is the handsome (h-p/iai'agu {] 782).

(|i, 161)). farther on, beyond some interesting oH gnild-honnes 
iSmithij, Carpenters, Weavers) and the Kornhan^-Platx, is Ihr 
Zeitglockentorm (Fl. G, 3, 4), the ancient laadmark of Bernf , till 
the middle of the 13th cent, the W. gate of the old toirn; it wai< 
rcbnilt in the 15th and ISth cent., and ia decorated vilh modern 
frescoes. On the E. side ia a cnrioas clock ('Zj'tgtogf^e'), which 
proclaims each honr bj the crowing of a cock, while jnet before 
the hoar a troop of bears marches in procession. 

The Korkhaub-Flatz (FI. E, 3) is embellished with the gro- 
teaqne KimllifTetter-Brunnen (Ogre Fountain), with a procession 
of armed hears on the shaft of the colamn. The handsome Eom- 
haas (PI. F., 3), built as a granary in 1711<16, bnt now a technical 
sehool, contains in the basement the Komkaut-KeUer (p, 153; 
fonneriy the mnnicipal wine-cellar). On the npper floor is the 
/ndusiWo! JWJweum (p. 154). In the N.W. corner of the square, at 
the beginning of the Kornhaua Bridge (p. 160), is the Theatre, 
bnilt by Wurstcmborger (1903), open only from Sept. till May. 
Behind Ihe Komhaus, in the Zenghausgaaie, arc the police station 
and the Frenck Chtrch, an early-Oothic building, frequently restor- 
ed, containing meiliieTalfreBcoeB(adm. 50 c. ; rerger, MarktgasseSS). 
Opposite is the Volkthaitf, boilt by Ingold (1914), with sculplnrps 
by HOfger, where the first international Socialist conference was 
held after the War in Feb. 1919. Adjacent, at No. 17, is the Alplna 
Maaeam (adtn,, sec p. 164), with several excellent relief nindde 
(Jnngfran group on a scale of 1; 10,000), maps, models of huts, etc. 

The so-called Lower Town, to the E. of the Zeitglockcutnrin, 
has many a picturesque corner to show. The bear appears in 
armour on the ZShringer-Brunnen in the Krahgasse (Pl.E, F,3, 4), 
and in the Grrgchtioeritsgassb (PI. F, Q, 3) are the Samton and 
the Juiliee Foimteiins, the latter dating from 1543. 

The minster chnrch is conspicuous on the S. edge of the lower 
town. In the MOsstkb-Pi.atz (PI. F, 4) are the Moni-t Fountain 
and an equestrian sUtne (by Volmar, 1848) of Budolfwm Erlach, 
victor at Laupen (p. 247). The Casino is close by {see p. 157). 

The •Mlnater (PI, F, 4), a fine late-Gothic edifice, dedicated to 
St. Vincent, was begun in 1421 by Uattliilas Ensingcr of Ulm and 
completed in 1598. The tower was finished only in 1S91-6, when Fro- 
fesKor Aug. Beyer of Dim added the upper octagon and the openwork 
Hpire (it28ft. high). Eoundthe roof runs abeantiful open balustrade, 
the design of which is different between each pair of buttresses. 
The sculptorcs of the W. portal [end of l.'ith cent.) represent the 
Last Judgnieiil; in the outer arches arc Christ, above, with the Virgin 
and John the Baptist on the left and right, and the Apostles ; in the 
/oaer arches are the Prophets aui\ \ht Wise and Foolish Virgius.

Thi: *MiHSTEB Terbacs, shaded bj chestnuts and famous for iU 
view, has a statue of Berthold V. von ZShrinfferi , the founder of 
Berrie, by Tscharncr (1847). 

In the N. part of the Lower Town is the Bathaus (PI. F, 3), 
or Cantonal HaU, erected in 1406-16 in the Bnrguudian Ute-Gothic 
style, with a beantiful exterior staircase and a frieze of the arma 
of tbe Herneie districts. In the square in front is Ihe StaJidard- 
Bearer Fountain. — At the E. end of the old towji (PI.G, 3), where 
once stood the Nydeck, the old castle of the'Dnbee of ZKhriogen, 
ancient narrow streetB descend to the Aare. In the LAufer-FlatE 
are (1.) the Ldufer-Brtumat aod <r.) the original Ralkam ('Der 
Jiurger Hns'). The adjoining UiiterforbrUeke replaced the Aral 
iviioden bridge in tbe 15th centnrj. 

I'lif continuation of the tJerechtigkeitBgasgc leads on tii lli€ 
Nydeek Bridge (PI. H, 3), built in 1841-44 and crossing the valley 
hy a single stone apin of 180 ft., 85 ft. abovo the Aari'. On the 
vicbl boyonit the bridge are the Bears' Dene (Bdrcngrahon), a 
highly popular attraction since the time of Ren£ II., Duke ofLorraine 
(d. 1508), who presented them to the city. — Hence we may walk 
upstream (r.) to the Kjrchenfeld Bridge (see below; V»'"')i or down- 
stream (1.) to the Kornhans Bridge (p. 160). 

Between the Miuater and the Sundesbans is the Caaiao (PI. 
E, 4), completed in 1909, a striking ediflee in the Bernese 18th cent, 
style, with banqneting and concert halls and a restaarant frequented 
in the afternoons and evenings (adm. 50 c. when the band plays). 
The "View from the terrace ia one of the finest in Beme (conip.

The Klrohenfeld Bridge (PI. E, 4), built in 1882-83, crosses 
the Aare valley in two iron spans of 3S5' each and connocts the old 
town with the Kircheiifeld, a modern villa quarter. To the left at

Kursaal (p. 179). It comtnuidB a tamoiis view of the Jangfran 
&cioa8 the Hdhematte (finest hy evening-light). To the rig^ht, near 
the upper or N.E. end of the Hshewcg, rises the old Monatttry of 
Inierlaken, founded in H30 and snppreaaed in 1528. The monwlerj, 
with the CattU added in 1750, ia now occnpied by government 
ufflees. Different parts of its old chnrch ire now used for the 
Anglican, Preshyterian, and Freni^h Proteslant services. Adjacent 
1b the Roman CtUkoUc Church (1908), — The prolongation of the 
HOheweg leads to the Oat Staiion (p. ITl) and the landing-place 
of the steamers on the Lake ofBrienz, and then to£dtM^en(lVtU' I 
hotels, see p. 172). The Brienz road, diverging to the left at the 
HStel BesDrivage, crosses the Aore. Beyond the hridge, to the left, 
is the footpath leading to the Harder, and to the right, the station 
of the Harder railway (p. 175). 

At the W. end of the HSheweg, ulmoBt opposite the HGt. Ober- 
land, the road to the Eleine Rngen (see below) diverges to the left, 
while that in a straight direction leads past the Post Office (PI. P) 
to the Main Station (p. 171). — The Markt-Str., diverging to the 
right at the post office, crosses the islands ot Spielmalten to Unter- 
Ken, with ita old Froteatant church, modernized in 1894; in the 
cemetery arc graves of English, French, and Belgian interned 
prUoners-of-war who died here in 191l>-18, The road to Merligen 
and Thun (pp. 168, 16T) leada hence to the left, and to the nght 
that to Habkern and Beatenberg (pp. 175, 170). 

The *Eleina Hagen, a wooded spnr of the Groese Bagen, 
offers attractive walks and varying views. The principal path as- 
cends straight from the conspicnons H6tel Jnngfranblick (1968'; 
p. 173) to the walk encircling the hill. Turning to the left, we reach 
the 'Hnmboldtarnhe' (view of the Jungfran and Lake of Bricnc) and 
the C/i hr.) TrinkiiaUe (cafi-reataurant), commanding the Jung- 
fran, Mfinch, and Schwalmern. Farther on, beyond the 'Scheffel 
Pavilion' (with a view of Lake Thnn), is a memorial of the forester 
Kastbofer, who, at the beginning of the 19th century, planted the 
hill with specimens ot alt the Swiss trees. Then past a reservoir 
and a chamois enclosure, and back to the Jungfran blick. Other 
narrower paths ramify in every direction. One ascends to the 
(25 min.) Rugenhohe (2425'), where three clearings in the wood 
disclose views of the Jungfran and the Lakes of Thnn and Urienx. 

A deep ravine, the Wagnereii-Schlucht, separates the Kleinu 
and the Groase Rugen. On the road leading thronjtii it is n memorial

The line skirta the rocky slope for a short distsuce, then finalty

{i'lt M.) the station of ESgerwand (9405'), excartited in the rock, 
with openings permitting the light of the station to be seen at night 
from Grindelwald. The view over the sheer precipice embraces 
GHadelwald (5905' below), the Faalhorn chaio, the Lake of Thuo, 
and a large portion of N.W, SwiteerUnd ae far aa the Jura, the Black 
Forest, and the Vosges (Zeiss telescope for the use ot visitors). ^ 
Thence the tuancl, curving towards the 8., passes beneath the Eiger 
to the station of —

the S.E, face of the Eiger, 130' above the upper (^rindelwald- 
Fieacher Glacier. The "View gives immediately on the rugged en- 
closed basin of the Ficscher Glacier, hacked by the Wetterhom and 
Schreckhorn, while to the right appear the Fiescherhorn, the roof 
<if the Kergli Hut, and the glacier-fall descending from the MOneh-

(p.39S) and the Rhone valley, appear the LepontioeAlps; the whole 
smnK suggests the appearance of a glacier-filled Alpine valley in

the abrupt and crevassed Kohlauenen and Gnggi Glaciers to the 
green Wcngern Alp and the valley ot Laaterhrnnnen, to Marren,

Meiringen (I960'; pop. 2996), with a station on the BrOnlg 
Bailway (R. 36), is the chief place of the Hasli-Tal, the inhabi- 
tants of which are skilfnl weavers and woodcarvera. The village 
lies on the right bank of the Aare, in a wide valley snrronnded 
by wooded moontains. In tbe parish hall in the main street is a 
collectioa of loeal cariosities. The old parish church has a H«m- 
anesi^De crypt and a detached Romaneaque tower. Behind it are a 
nnmber of shady walks. To the S. appear the Reichenbacb Falls, 
with the Wellhom and Rosenlani Glacier above them. The MUhle- 
back, Dorfbach, and Alpback, descending from the Haslibery 
to the N. of the village, form coasiderable falls. The Ilasliberg ia 
reached by a narrow road past the (20 min,) Gorge of the Alpbach 
(adm. 80 c.) to (I'/j hr.) Reuti (see p. 141). It may also be climbed 
from the gorge in 35 min. by 300 steps cut in the rock. 

The "Qorae of the Aare (Aareschlucht, Aarelamm), nearly 
2 M. from the atation, is a romantic gap worn by the river through 
the rocky barrier of the Kirchet (p. 204). The tramway (see above)

cnnres and tunnels, and stations at Goldried (!'/, H.; 3359'), 
Banalp (2 M.; 4416'), and Oberet-Stafd (3'/, M.; 5681'). The 
terminus is Rothcm^ivlm {7388'), below the hotel (p. 199) and 
15 min. from the summit. The glorious prospect (panorama a£ 
the hotel) embraces the whole chain of Ihe Appenzell, Uri, Engel-

with a view (1.) of a fall of the Gdmerbach, which descends from 
tiie Selmer-See. The old bridle-path (preferaljle for wallters) diverges 
to the right and leadj over rounded itaba of racb, called the Helle

a waterfall by means of the Hellemad-Brticke (4678') and ascends

and savage scenery. To the right (N.W.), above as, is the Aerlen 
Qlacier, with the rocky ridge of the Aerlengrltli peering over it. 
Below is the brawling Aare. Traces of glacial action are visible on 
both sides. Refreshments may be obtained in a hnt on the Kurzen- 
tSttTilen Alp (5300'), in an eipansion of the valley halfway belvcen 
Handeck and the Qrimael Hospice. The last pines now disappear.

the ZinkenstQcke come into sight; behind them, to the right, rinr.

Nenchitel, to the E. of the month of the Set/on (p. 337), and at 
the bue and on the slopea of the Chaamont (p. S37). Allied with 
Berne after 1406 and with Lucerne after 1501, Nenchfitel played 
n glorious part in the Bnrgundian wars. In 1504 it psBsed to the 
dacalhonxe of OrHana-LoDgoeville, and mlTOT, on the extinction of 
that line, to the kings of Prnsaia, who maintnined their sovereignty 
over it until the revolution of 1848, except for the years 1806-14, 
daring vhich it belonged to France. In 1814 it joined the SwJas

scene ot a battle (Jnne 89nd, 1476) in which SifiOO Ewisa defeated 
36,000 Bnrgundiana under Cbarles thi Sold. At the entrance of 
the town (1.) is the GtgtUi built by Duke Peter of Savoy in the 13tb 
cent., which, with a garriaon of 1500 Bernese under Adrian von 
Bubenberg (p. 155), reaiated the Burgondians for ten daya before 
the battle of Morat. Most of the streets have ground-floor arcades 
like those of Beme, The achool-honse contains a musenm of natural 
history and antiquities (lake- dwelling relics, etc.)- — On the lake, 
10 min. S.W., is the village of Meyruz, Ger. Merlack, and 10 miu.

30 M. AT«nche8 (1337'; Couronne; de la Ville), a little town 
of 1734 inhab., the Roman Aventicum, was the ancient capital ot 
theHelvetii, and, judging from the space enclosed by its walls (3'/^ M. 
long), counted over 30,000 inhab. in its heyday (lst-2nd cent. A.D.}. 
Tbe present town, with its mediieval castle, occupies merely the 
hillock (1575') on which the Roman castrum stood. Keeping straight 
on from the station we pass the Roman Theatre, a semicircle with 
a diameter of 347'. Tbe Cigognier, a Corinthian column 36' in 
height, called after astork's nest which long occupied it, was perhaps 
a part of the forum (comp. 'Childe Harold', iii. G5). Tbe antiquities 
found since 1885 are kept in the Mueeitm ot the archceological 
society (tbe custodian lives near the church). In the garden are the 
remains of an amphitheatre. The sole snrviving tower of the Roman 
enceinte is the TomaUax (altered in the 18th cent.), 10 min. N.E.,

hold IV. of Zlhringen, and a HabsburgpoB session from 1977 to 1447, 
it joined the Confederation in 1481. Fribonrg is the leat of the 
bishop of Lanasnne (aince 1536; comp. p. 3T8) and of a Roman 
Catholic university, opened in 1889. Apart from the modern quar- 
ter around the railway station, the town has retained i(s medisjyal 
features to a remarkable de^ee; walla and lowers, churches and 
convents, gabled and turreted houses with wronght-iron lattices of 
the I7-18tb cent, and numerous fouutains of the 16-17th centuries. 
The inhabitants number 23,000, nearly nine-tenths of whom are 
Roman Catholics, two-thirds speaking French and one-third German. 
From the station (tramway, see above) we proceed to the left

Churoh (PI. P), bailt in 1875, we follow the Rue de Romont to the 
Place St. Piebbe, embellisbed with gardens, the FoTitaine de 
St. Pierre (1593), and a meteorological column; to the right is the 
handsome Post Office (Fl. A), which accommodates also an in- 
dnstrlal and an educational museum (upper floor); to the left, the 
lai^ Pensionttal des Damee Urmdinet. (At the 8.E. comer of the 
Place is a cable tramway to the lower town, see above.) 

We descend from the Place St. Pierre by tbe Bontc des Alpes 
(fine views) to the Place bu Titi-Ein;, with a venerable but decaying

Geneva (1243'; pop. 140,000; many foreigners), Fr. Genim, 
trct. Genf, capital nf the amsll hat popabns cantoo of tbe game 
nime, lies at the 8. end of the late, where the swift blue waters 
of the Rhtnt emerge from it. The Bhone divides the town into two 
parts. On the left bank, on a steep hill iloininated by the cathedral 
towers, lies the Old Toum, the seat of government and centre of 
traffic, wbicli included the whole of GencTft till the clentolltion of 
the fortiflcationn about the middle of the 19th cent., with the sub- 
urbs of Hainpedaig, to the S.W., and /^« Eaux Fires, to the £. 
On the right bank is the Qaartio' St.6en:aii,yntii the snbnrb of 
2ie« Pdqaii and wide belt of lUUs to the £. Geneva is a highl; 
important commercial and Jnancial centre, and ia the seat of Ihe 
Red Cross and the League of Nations. Watchmaking, introduced 
by the Frenchman CiieiD in 1587, was already a flourishing in- 
dustry in the 18th century. After Paris fienevii is perhaps the 
chief centre of French iiitelleetna! life. 

Geneva appears in the Ist cent. B.C. as a town of the AUobiogea 
(Csaar do Bell. Gall., i. 6-S), whoae teriitory became s Roman province. 
In 44S jl became the capital of the Burgundian kingdom, with which it 
[ame iito the poescssion of the Frmks in fi54; it was annexed to tbc 
new Burgundian kingdom (p, 846) at the end of the 8th cent., and fell to 
the Qermaa Kmpire in 10S3. In 10S4 Emp. Conrad II. caused faimselt 
10 be crowned here as King of Burgundy. In the course of the protiacteil 
cunllicts between the Bishops of Geneva, the imperial CcubIs of Geneva, 
and the Connts (afterwards Dukes) of Gavoy. Ibo citiieps succeeded in 
ohlaining various privileges. In 1518 (hey entered into an alliance with 
Friboui;, and in iGle with Berne. Two parties were now formed in tke 
town, the ConfederateaCEidgenosBeD', pronounced hy the French 'Higuenoa', 
whence 'HugoODcls'l , and the 'Mamelukes', partisans of Savoy. 

In the midat of these discords dawned the REFORUjiTiaK, which Geneva 
i^ealously embtaceil. In ISab the Biahop traceferreil bis seat to Qex, and 
Iho following year the theologian John Calmn (properly Jean Caulvin or 
Chauvin), a refugee from Paris, who was boin at Soyon in Picardy in IW9, 
sought an asylum at Geneva. He attached himself to GuiUaume FOrH 
of Dauphiny, wiio aioce 133a hud been the chief promoter of the new

From the Gare cie Comavin (p. 255) the broad Ru« on Momt- 
BLiNc leads to the lake. To the left ia the h»ndsome Post Office 
{PI. E, F, 2), opposite which is s bust of Lonia Favre (pp. 123, 301), 
the engineer. Farther on, to the left, is the Gothic Englidi Church 
(Holjr Trinity; PI. F, 3). From the end of the Rtte dn Moat-Bknc 
the handsome^- 

*Poiit da Mont-Blano (PI. F, 0,3,4), built in 1862, Ibc 
highest of the seren Bhone bridges, leads to the Jardin AQg:Iais 
(p. 260). Between it and tbe Poid des Bergues ia Bous*€av,'s Is- 
land (PI. F, 3), with a bronie statne of Jean Jacqnea Ronssean, b)' 
Pradier (1834). Bj tbe third bridge, the Pont de ia Machine (PI. F, 
3,4), is the central station of the electricity works. The bridge 
[reeentlj rebuilt) over the island between the Place St. Gervais 
and Place Bel-Air (PI. E, 3, 4) was the only bridge at Geneva till 
the beginning of the I9th cent, and still carries the most traffic. 
The Toar de I'Re has been preserved as a relic of the mediaeval 
fortifications. — Farther down ia the monnment Pvnt de la Ccnil' 
ouurentdre (PI. D,4), crossing theKhone from thcPromenade St. Jean. 

Extending N.E. along the lake from the Pont dn Mont-Blanc is 
the Qaai du Mvtd-Blane(^l. F, G, 3, 2), which coinuiands a bcanti- 
fnl *Vie\v of tbe Uont Blanc chain, best on clear evenings (view 
indicator opposite the Sue des Alpes). The difference in height 
between Mont Blanc and the Aiguille dn Midi, hardly perceptible 
at Chanionii, ia well marked frojn this point. 

On the left rises the snmptnons BmuBwlek Monument 
(PI. P, 2), the mausoleum of Dvke (Carles II. of BruMialal'. 
{d. 1873), who, eiilod from the dnchj m 1%^Q, k^<;-t.\. ■Oat\^

desijiu is bf the srchltect Franel, the sculptures by Cain, Igncl, 
and others. There are two repr«aentations of the duke : ■ recnmbent 
efflgy on the sareophagas beneath a marble baidaccbipo; uid a 
bronze equestrian figore, which was intendcil to crown the baldae- 
chiuo but proved too heavy. 

Farther on is the Kurgaal (PI. G, 2; p. 257), behind which is 
the American Church (p. S57). Beyond the Jetee dea Pdgitit 
(PI. 6, U, 2), at the end of which is a lighthonse (fine view of On 
town), the qnay passes the Palais des Nations (PI. n; G, 1), 
formerly the HOtel National and now the headijoarlers of Ht 
League of Naiions, fonnded by the delegates to the Peace Con- 
gress »t Versailles on Jane 28tb, 191!), The permanent secretary- 
general is the Hon. Sir Eric Dmrnmoad, K.C.M.G., C.B. — The Qnai 
du Mont-Blanc ends at the pretty Pare Mon Bepoe, beqneathed to 
the town in ]R99. The mansion belonging to it contains a small 
pictnre gallery and ethnographical collection (adm., see p. 258). 
Near the bouse, against the garden wall, is a monument to Gene- 
vese soldiers, by Angst (1920). 

On the South BiKK op the LiKK, near the Pont dn IfoDt-Blane, 
is the Naliowd Momanenl. (PI. 6, 4), a bronee group by R, Dover 
(1869) commemorating the adherence of Geneva to the Confedera- 
tion (p. 2b9). — Adjacent is the pleasant Jardin Anglids or 
Promenade dv. Lac, with a caffi-reatanrant (p. 256) and bronze 
basis of the painters Calame and Diday. The Grand Quai, skirt- 
ing the gardens, contains the most fashionable shops. — To the 
N.E., the Qaai dt» Eaux-Vives (PI. H, 1, 4, 3) extends to the Pare

67. The Lake of GenoTa. 

The *Lake of Geneva (1220'), Fr. Lac Ltman, the Laims 
Lmnanut of the Kumans, is the largest of the Swiss lakes, 45 M. 
long, S'/i U. broad between Morgea and Aniphion, 1095' deep iu 
places, and has an area of SS4 sq. M., two-flfths of whieh helong 
to Franc^e■ The water Is transparent and of a deep bine colour. 
Par eentaries it haa been a faronrite theme with writers of every 
nationality (Byron, Voltaire, Rousseau, Dnnias, etc.). On the N, 
aide it is boanded by gently sloping hills, richly olothed with 
vineyards and orchards, and enlivened with smiling villages. Tu 
the E. and S. a noble bacbgroand is formed by the long chain of 
the monatains of Talais and Savoy, 

A phenomenon obaeryed on the Idke of Geneva, aod on other likvs 
also, coDBiata in the ao-called 'Seichei', at flnctuationa in the level of the 
water, probably caaaed by auddsD alteration in (he itmoapheric preasure. 
The 'aeicheH lonBitudinalee' run from one end of the lake (o the other;

lake in terriiceE. The old quarters with their aarrow streets, viz. 
the Citi, with the cathedral (1735') and the caatte, aad the Btnirg, 
with the Hatel de Ville and the church of St. Frantois (1584'), were 
formerly divided by the valley of the Mon torrent, but tbia has been 
partly fiOed up and built over. A circnlar road marks the liraiU o( 
the old town, croBsing the valley to the S.W. of the Bourg by the 
Griind Pont, a viaduct, 197 yds. long, built by Pichard in 1839-44. 
A second viaduct, the PorU Chattderoa-Montbenon (PI. A, B, 3; 
p. 279), 224 yds. long, built in 1903-5, unites the W. quarters of 
the town. The College, founded in 1537 by the BerneBe, was raised 
to the dignity of a Univervly in 1891 (1100 students); it inclades 
a technical academy, Lausanne is a great educational centre, with 
excellent communal and private schools. 

The pLiCR St. Fhamcois (PI. C, 4), in which rise the church 
of St. Fran^oU (1442), the handsome ^it Office, and the Ganlonal 
Bank, is the chief busineBS, tourist, aod tramway centre. In the 
Rue Benjamin Constant (former Promenade Derriire-Bourg), leading 
theitce to the £., is a marble monument to the Vandois poet J^iate 
Olivier (d. 1876). From the N.E. comer of the square we may de- 
scend the steep Rue St. Francois and then ascend the Rue da Pont 
to the pictoresque Place db la Palcd (PI. C, 3), or market-place, 
with the Hdta de ViUe (1458, rebuilt 16T4) and a fottntain of 
1585. Thence we ma; ascend the covered Marka Sl^* (169 in 
' all) to the cathedral, a preferable route to which from the Place 
St. Francois leads by the busy Rue de Bourg, the Rue St. Pierre, 
and the Pont Beetiirea (PI. D, 3), the third of the great bridges of 
Lausanne. The Terrace in front of the cathedral commands a view 
of the town, the lake, and the Alps. 

The ^Cathedral of Notre-Dame (PI. C, D, 3; Protestant), 
begun in the llthcent., dedicated by Pope Gregory X. in 1275 in 
the presence of the Emperor Rudolph of Habsburg, and restored 
from Viollet-le- Doc's plans since 1873, is an imposing building 
on masBive early-Oothic lines, though the general design with the 
five lowers is reminiscent of Romanesqae art. The ceutral tower 
over the crossing, with its graceful coloonade, is 47' high. Only 
one of the W. towers was ever completed; the main portal below 
is 16th cent., but the' statuary is modem.

shorter path, rongh in places, diverges from tbe path to Les Tiuei

(to the left, the Source of the Arveyron (p. 315), which issues frora 
the Mer de Glace) to Lea Bois and (40 min.} Lea Praz (p. 313). 

The •Brfivent (8285'), theS.W, buttress of tbe Aignilles Rouge!, 
to tbe W. of Chamonix, affords a magnificent view of Mont Blanc, 
which is here revealed in all its grandeur; tn the N.E. beyond tbe 
FlfigSre we see the Bernese Alps (Wildbam, Wildstrnbel, etc.), 
and to the S.W. the Dauphiny Alps (good monntain-indicator bf
