Cultural heritage

The sense of community and belonging is founded on a shared cultural heritage. The Federal Office of Culture has set itself the goal of protecting, preserving, mediating and providing access to Switzerland's cultural heritage. It works to protect built heritage and open up intangible cultural heritage, acts to combat the illegal transfer of cultural assets, and administers valuable collections belonging to the Confederation.
