"Clean & Safe" label

The tourism industry associations have launched the uniform "Clean & Safe" label on the initiative of Switzerland Tourism. With this label, the tourism service providers signal that they have committed themselves to comply with the protection concepts and implement all measures in accordance with the protection concept in order to ensure a safe and clean stay for guests. The label creates trust during the holidays on site.
