Aarau

 info: click! 
CH-5000 Aarau: With its landscape shaped by the Aare River and the Jura Mountains, its picturesque old town, and its central location between Zurich, Basel and Lucerne, Aarau is a very attractive city, real worth the visit.
Aarberg

 info: click! 
CH-3270 Aarberg: Swiss capital of sugar, where sugar beets of the whole country are transformed, Aarberg has kept an old town with a covered wooden bridge built in 1566 giving access to a vast market place where good restaurants abound. A sweet stopover!
Aare River

 info: click! 
: Büren an der Aare is situated on the navigable part of the Aare between Biel and Solothurn. The covered wooden bridge is unfortunately not antique, it was rebuilt in the old style after an criminal arson in 1989.
Aargau

 info: click! 
CH-5000 Aarau: Canton of Aargau is very attractive to nature, art and culture lovers, families and all those who enjoy life. Many rivers criss-cross it: the Rhine, the Aare, the Limmat, the Reuss, and there is also the beautiful Lake Hallwil. Lots to see: castles, fortresses, thermal spas, vineyards, forests, and quiet valleys. Aargau is an ideal gateway to various Swiss cities, such as Basel, Berne, Solothurn, Luzern, Zug, and Zürich.
Aargau buildings (17th/19th c.)

 info: click! 
: We come to strange buildings that once stood in the canton of Aargau, with characteristic thatched roofs. Until late in the 19th century, straw from grain fields was used as roofing material and as raw material for the braiding industry.
Aargau buildings (17th/19th c.)

 info: click! 
: The building on the left is an opulent farmhouse from 1609 from Oberentfelden. A little further, you can see the small house of a day labourer, built in 1803, which used to be in Leutwil.
Aargau day labourer´s house (19th c.)

 info: click! 
: We are in front of the entrance to the small house of a poor peasant, who also had to work as a day labourer in order to live. It was built in 1803 in Leutwil, near Lake Hallwil. Further on, we see another type of house from Aargau and, to the left, a farmer's house from the Basel Jura.
Aargau day labourer´s house (19th c.)

 info: click! 
: The house is of the same type as the large peasant farmhouse next door, only smaller, with cramped rooms and low ceilings. The owner was a poor farmer who tended orchards and plantations and also worked as a day labourer, helping in the summer with haymaking and doing forestry work in the winter. This poverty has meant that the house has never been modernised in any way and is of rare authenticity.
Aargau dwelling (17th c.)

 info: click! 
: This late Gothic style dwelling house was built in Villnachern around 1635, two years after a violent fire destroyed part of the village. It probably belonged to a rich owner, wealthy enough to have such a small but very neat house built.
Aargau farmhouse (17th c.)

 info: click! 
: There used to be many roofs thatched with straw in the Swiss Midlands. Only a few remain. The house from Oberentfelden bears witness to those former thousands of large multipurpose houses with tent-like straw roofs.
Aargau farmhouse (17th c.)

 info: click! 
: These thatched houses were so widespread that, until the 1850s-1900s, many villages in Aargau resembled tent campsites. With all the rustic comforts of the time, of course!
Aargau pig sty (19th c.)

 info: click! 
: Until the 1950s, pigs were raised in this type of pole construction, with a trough also filled with kitchen waste. The latrine was a simple hut adjoining the pigsty, a common combination at the time. The pigsty came from Brugg, a small town which remained fairly rural until the 1950s and 1960s.
Abbey of Saint George (1)

 info: click!

Achivadolimni Beach

 info: click! 
: One of the most beautiful beaches of Milos, ideal for windsurfing and kitesurfing. It is named after the small lake just behind, which means "Clam Lake". Continuing the road, you enter the western part of Milos, very wild and ideal for hiking, but the paved road soon becomes a dirt road.
Achivadolimni Lake

 info: click! 
: This small lake is off the eponymous beach, which name means "Clam Lake". Further on lies the western part of Milos, very wild and ideal for hiking, but devoid of paved roads, where maybe you'll see the dangerous Milos viper (Macrovipera lebetina schweizeri).

Adolph-Saurer Quai

 info: click! 
: This alley, which crosses the entire lakeside, is named after Adolph Saurer (1841-1920), one of the pioneers of modern Swiss industry. The Saurer family from Arbon produced the famous trucks that bear their name. It was Saurer who in 1904 patented the engine brake that is used on all vehicles today. It was also thanks to Saurer that engines are no longer started by cranking, as the company patented a compressor starter in 1905, which was adopted by Renault, among others.
Adrian von Bubenberg Statue

 info: click! 
: This lord of Spiez was commissioned in 1476 to defend Murten, which was besieged by the Burgundian armies. The famous Battle of Murten on June 22nd saved the town and sounded the death knell for the Burgundian State. It pitted two armies of 20,000 men each, that of the Confederates against that of Charles the Bold, and strengthened Switzerland's independent status.

Parikia, Paros: This good Greek tavern is located on the sea promenade, between Parikia and Livadia Beach.
Aghapi

 info: click! 
: One of the secret jewels of Tinos, far from the main roads and visited mostly by hikers. The access road goes up a picturesque valley, bypasses the village and ends in cul-de-sac. The village is pedestrian: just an alley partly underground, which passes under the church and where a nice tavern is nestled. A unique and magical place, ignored by mass tourism!
Aghia Anna

Aghia Kyriaki

 info: click!

: Another small detour to visit an old church, which was built in 1746...
Aghios Georghios Faralis

Aghios Ioannis

Aghios Stefanos

 info: click! 
: This tiny chapel built in a cave opening onto the sea is one of the tourist attractions of Syros. The chapel is simple, but its environment makes it magical.

Aghios Stefanos

 info: click! 
: Sandy beach, relatively protected from the wind, equipped, very popular, with taverns nearby. Just north of Tourlos, the big port of Mykonos, so the quality of the water is not guaranteed given the intensity of the maritime traffic. On the other hand, the beach is famous for being rather quiet.
Agia Anna

 info: click! 
: A small pebble beach below Chora, not far from the Monastery of Chozoviotissa. Unequipped, it's very popular because its rocky landscape is particularly scenic, but it can be a little dangerous for children.
