Switzerland's Intangible Cultural Heritage: List of Living Traditions Updated

The list of living traditions in Switzerland, which has existed since 2012, has been updated for the first time. It has been expanded by 34 entries and now contains 199 important forms of intangible cultural heritage, selected by experts and representatives of the cantons and cities under the direction of the Federal Office of Culture. The extension of the list focuses on living traditions in cities. The list provides an insight into Switzerland's cultural diversity. In spring 2018, the updated list will be published as a web inventory with comprehensive documentation.
