A bench wanders trough Switzerland

Its aim is to draw the public's attention to the many different ways in which benches play a role in health, hiking, recreation and social cohesion. The particularly Swiss model is a replica of the original "Landi" bench! It was specially designed for the 1939 National Exhibition in Zurich, from where it began its triumphal march through Swiss bench life.
