"Youth Festival Aarau 2001"
Aarau is situated in the Swiss Mittelland on the southeastern end of the Jura mountains and the Aare river. Due to its uniform town conception with its late gothic terraced houses and with the colourful street façades, Aarau is also called the "City of Gables and Gardens". Its medieval heritage is still important for Aarau. Many residences dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries have been preserved. Especially charming is the Halde, one of the most beautiful late gothic and baroque streets in the whole canton. The artistically decorated roofs and the styled roads still give the town its unmistakable character.
On Aarau's calendar of events, two special local celebrations stand out: the "Maienzug" on the first Friday of July, and the "Bachfischet" in September. Although it fully comes up to the demands made on a modern regional centre situated on the Swiss Plateau. Aarau has preserved its unique character.
The surrounding countryside is only a few minutes away from any district, be it the banks of the Aare, the forests spreading north and south of the residential areas, or the "Roggenhaus" game park, a very popular place for excursions. Its public transport facilities ( with direct train connections by TGV to Paris and to Vienna ) and the A1 motorway nearby make Aarau easy to reach and thus ideal for conferences or meetings.
Swiss towns never lose their appeal - whatever the time of year! Art, culture and culinary delights abound in Swiss towns. And if shopping is your particular love, the opportunities are practically limitless. Each Swiss town is also individual in character due to its history, its unique buildings and the people who live in them.
Being such a mountainous country, it is only a short excursion from any Swiss town into the Alps. Extensive diversity within a small area - this best describes the charm of Swiss towns. It's well worth while paying a visit to Swiss towns - for a weekend, or even a few days longer.
