Switzerland's History
Switzerland is a small country situated in the heart of Central Europe and shares a lot of it's history and of it's culture (four national languages spoken in different regions) with it's neighbours Germany, France, Italy and Austria. When does the history of Switzerland begin? The answer depends on the interpretation of the term Switzerland
  • Archeology shows that Stone Age hunters have been living in Switzerland already before the last Ice Age (approximately 350'000 B.C.). Switzerland's official latin name "Confoederatio Helvetica" goes back to a Celtic tribe called the Helvetians The majority of Switzerland's "native" population settled during the Germanic Migration of Nations that set an end to the Roman Empire in Western Europe at about 400 A.D. The Old Swiss Confederacy was founded in the first days of August, 1291 (hence Switzerland's national holiday is celebrated on August, 1 st Switzerland was officially accepted as an independent nation by it's neighbours in the 1648 European peace treaty.

    History of IAESTE Switzerland
    Switzerland was one of the nine West European countries who met three years after the second world war in London at the Imperial College with delegates of Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Great Britain, Netherlands, Norway and Sweden. It was recommended that a central organisation should be established to control the interchange of technical students in the various countries and that this permanent organisation should be called THE INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR THE EXCHANGE OF STUDENTS FOR TECHNICAL EXPERIENCE (IAESTE). The geographical coverage was soon to spread to most of Europe and beyond, as new countries were admitted into membership. In Switzerland the first exchanges took place with students from the ETH Zurich, but gradually other Swiss universities and technical colleges joined in. Over the last 50 years IAESTE Switzerland has been a regular member of IAESTE International , has hosted several General Conferences, has experienced the ups and downs of economic crises or political turmoils and contributed considerably to the smooth running of this world-wide organisation.

    51. Travel In Interlaken, Switzerland - History -®
    The Germanic tribes overran switzerland a little more than three hundred years All of switzerland came under Frankish rule during the sixth century,
    ADVERTISING INFORMATION Interlaken - History Interlaken (570 m), though originally the stomping ground of some wayward Celts, was taken over by the Romans in 58 B.C.. These conquer o rs gave it the Latin name "Interlacus," meaning "between the lakes." The Germanic tribes over-ran Switzerland a little more than three hundred years later, and it was specifically the Alemanni who moved into the valley in 260 A.D.. Sometime during their heyday the name was mutated to "Inder-lappen." All of Switzerland came under Frankish rule during the sixth century, but the Franks had little effect on an area already well ensconsed in the Germanic language and culture. In 1133, an Augustinian monastery was founded and given the strangely familiar name of "Interlacus." The monks gained power by buying up all of the surrounding lands, during the next few centuries eventually becoming the biggest landowners in all of the Berner Oberland. The concept of feudalism was alive and thriving. Around the year 1280, Count Berchtold of Eschenbach got permission to build a town on lands rented from the monastery. His town, just over on the other side of the River Aare, became known as "Unterseen," also "between the lakes."

    of Breisgau (now the German region north of the Rhine bordering switzerland). west of the River Aare in today s Frenchspeaking switzerland).
    Bern - City of the Zähringers
    The region of Bern was settled as early as prehistoric times, and later by Celts, Romans and Germanic tribes. In 1191 Duke Berchtold V of Zähringen founded the City of Bern. The Zähringers came from a Swabian family of noble descent, rulers of the dukedom of Breisgau (now the German region north of the Rhine bordering Switzerland). The German Emperor appointed them Chancellors of Burgundy (roughly present-day Burgundy in France as well as the territory west of the River Aare in today's French-speaking Switzerland). As chancellors they were entrusted with representing the Emperor and protecting his interests against rebellious nobles, as well as ensuring safe access to the strategically important alpine passes in the Burgundy region, which were vital to the Emperor's rule over north and south, running as they did from present-day Germany to present-day Italy. Construction of Bern on the Aare peninsula. Natural protection on three sides; walls and watch-tower on the fourth side (now the Clock Tower), city moats. Berchtold V built the city according to a clearly defined plan, starting with the lowest edge (Nydegg) and proceeding in a westerly direction. Characteristic features common to all Zähringer cities: broad street for market (no central square); advanced infrastructure with utility water source (Stadtbach), sewage (Ehgräben) and drinking water supply (Quellfassung); right-angle street grid; lots divided into tracts of equal dimensions (so-called homesteads measuring 100x60 feet); imperial citadel (Nydegg Fortress, now the site of the Nydegg Church) separated from the main city: public buildings (Cathedral and Town Hall) set aside from the main city axis (which was reserved for commercial purposes).

    A brief history of Calvin and his supporters and opponents.
    REFORM IN FRENCH SWITZERLAND Some historians refer to Calvin as a generation reformer. Calvin built on Luther's and Zwingli's foundations but went much farther to construct his own building. In some ways he represents a median between the two. On one hand, Calvin admired Luther but often disagreed with him. On the other hand, he saw Zwingli as too humanistic, Erasmian and anti-Augustinian. John Calvin influenced western civilization far more than the other two reformers. Calvin systematized where the others did not. Luther wrote tracts, pamphlets and treatises but did not put his thinking into neat systematic form. Zwingli tended toward the negative, demanding the removal of unbiblical observances and practices but hardly developing a systematic theology. When Calvin wrote, he weighed his arguments carefully and wrote in well turned phrases. As a result, readers found him logical, understandable and reasonable and thus highly influential. I. Calvin's early life. Jean Cauvin (1509-1564) began his life in Noyon, Picardy, France. His father served the Lord of Noyon as fiscal secretary and the local bishop as secretary. Since Calvin grew up in a nobleman's home, he enjoyed many advantages. Educational opportunities presented themselves at every corner. He enjoyed considerable wealth and cultural enrichment. Because of his father's relationship to the bishop, Calvin received his own chaplaincy at age 12 complete with stipend.

When Napoleon I, then first consul, forced the liberal novelist and essayist Madame de Stael (nee Anne Louise Germaine Necker) into exile from Paris in 1803, she settled just north of Geneva in the Chateau de Coppet on the banks of the lake. Declaring that "Geneva is Europe." [1] Napoleon realized that Madame de Stael continued to gather the world around her at Coppet, making it a literal crossroads for writers across the Continent. Stendhal (1783-1842) later called Coppet "the Estates General of European thought." [2] Even today, the visitor to Geneva senses that the city is the magnetic center of intellectual Europe. Madame de Stael inherited Coppet from her father, the Genevan banker Jacques Necker (1732-1804), on his death and often spent the summer there before Napoleon forced her into exile, first at Coppet, and then, beginning in 1812, on a journey that took her across Austria, Russia, Finland, and Sweden before arriving in England. She traveled through Russia just ahead of Napoleon's Grande Armee, and soon after she was presented to Czar Alexander I (r. 1801-1825) in Saint Petersburg, the French captured Moscow.

Two recent exposés of the Nazi gold scandal, both sensational airport-style paperbacks full of shocked prose, but both nonetheless getting down to the nitty-gritty.

Controversial work putting forward the thesis that it was the mobilization of Switzerland’s citizen army, and not high-level politicking and collaboration, that kept the Third Reich at bay during World War II. Lambasted for being naive, it nonetheless brings some interesting facts to light, although remains ultimately unconvincing.

    Although there’s evidence of settlement around Zürich from the Bronze Age and before, the Romans were the first to fortify the site, turning the Lindenhof into a customs post in the first century BC and naming it Turicum . The legend of the city’s foundation dates from the martyrdom of Felix and Regula , deserters from a Roman legion based in Valais. During the eleventh and twelfth centuries, Zürich’s traders built up fabulous wealth, mainly from textiles such as wool and silk. In 1336, however, a visionary burgomaster, Rudolf Brun , shuffled the merchant nobility out of power, handing control instead to workers’ guilds (which were to keep a hold on the city until the nineteenth century). Shortly after, still under Brun’s direction, Zürich joined the nascent Swiss Confederation. The thriving city experienced its zenith of power and prestige in the sixteenth century, when it became the first Swiss city to embrace the
