We're located between Asheville and Boone at Blue Ridge Parkway Milepost 331.
Little Switzerland received its name from early summer residents of the area who thought the scenery resembled that of the Swiss Jura Mountains.

Country Flag ... Travel Warning History During the Germanic invasions that swept over the Western Roman Empire in the 4th century AD, the Burgundians and the Alamanni conquered Helvetia. The Protestant Reformation in Switzerland started in 1518, when a country pastor named Huldreich Zwingli began to denounce the sale of indulgences by the Roman Catholic Church. During the 1790s, the French Revolution spread to Switzerland; the French continually intervened in support of Swiss revolutionaries, a group that sought to promote political reforms and the establishment of a strong national government, and in 1798 the revolutionaries occupied all Swiss territory.

    History and Organisation of IAESTE Switzerland
    S witzerland 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.
    I AESTE Switzerland is governed by the National Committee which comprises representatives of universities and engineering colleges, industrial, student and alumni associations. The National Committee usually meets once a year in November to review past results and decide on future policy. It cooperates with about 20 universities and technical colleges all over Switzerland. All current work is done centrally by the National Secretariat which is attached to the

    The History page
    The below information come from The Aiki News Encyclopedia of Aikido by Stanley A. Pranin The roots of AIKIKAI HOMBU Aikido in Switzerland can be traced to a Swissair pilot named Mickey Schooning who frequently flew to Japan in the 1950s and 60s. Schooning had earlier seen Minoru MOCHIZUKI in Geneva in 1951 and was impressed with his technique. He began to study at the Aikikai Hombu Dojo in the late 1950s. Together with Freddy JACOT-DESCOMBES , a flight engineer also with Swissair, and Willy Frischknecht, a carpenter, Schooning was instrumental in introducing aikido in Switzerland with direct ties to the Aikikai Hombu. This Swiss group invited Nobuyoshi TAMURA and Mutsuro NAKAZONO from France for seminars in the 1960s and Hiroshi TADA was also an occasional visiting instructor. Willy Frischknecht hosted Nakazono for several months c. 1971. At that time, the organization unifying aikido in Switzerland was called the UNION SUISSE D'AIKIDO . Its teachers came from a variety of backgrounds and were only loosely connected through their organization. Nonetheless, the Union was well embedded in the official sports establishment. To this day, it is the only aikido organization in Switzerland eligible for government subsidies for physical education due to its affiliation with the Judo Federation.

    Calibration Management

    In 1967, the Livingston Hire Company evolved from a firm originally founded by J. Livingston Hogg to represent large American producers of gauges. The company became the first and only appliance rental company in the European market. Later in the 60s, the young company achieved its first sizeable contract with Cable and Wireless, convincing the banks to back the plans of this growing enterprise. The firm's proximity to two railway stations, King's Cross and St. Pancras, helped convert Livingston staffers into movie stars for a day. British Rail was filming a commercial at these stations for its Red Star Service. Since Livingston Hire used the service for long distance rail travel, some employees were featured in the commercial. In those early years, warehouse management systems were fairly primitive, using chalkboards to track stock and inventory. Soon, though, these methods were replaced by more modern overhead projectors which displayed information on video screens. This way, an employee could update information on a transparency, which could be viewed by other employees from their work station.

    74. Switzerland: Fire Ecology And History Research In The Southern Part Of Switzerla
    Fire Ecology and history Research in the Southern Part of switzerland.(IFFN No. Forest Fire history of this Century in Southern switzerland.
    Fire Ecology and History Research
    in the Southern Part of Switzerland (IFFN No. 15 - September 1996) Introduction
    In Switzerland most forest fires occur in the southern part, a small region of 4000 km (9.8% of the total national area) with a forest cover of 44% (176,000 ha). An average of 740 hectares of woodland in southern Switzerland burn annually, generally during the dry winter period, but recently also during the summer seasons. The typical vegetation under the climatic conditions in this region are chestnut forests on acid soils, deciduous broadleaved mixed forests on limestone and beech forests at altitudes between 800 and 1300 m a.s.l.. In 1992 the FNP Sottostazione Sud delle Alpi (FNP SdA), a branch station of the Swiss Federal Institute of Forest, Snow and Landscape Research, started its research on forest fires by creating a wildfire database including all information available on forest fires in southern Switzerland. Since that time several research topics about forest fires and their management have been under study at the FNP SdA. In this first contribution about forest fire research in Switzerland we will report on the ongoing studies on fire ecology and fire history research in the southern part of the Swiss Alps which are being conducted at the FNP SdA in close collaboration with other Swiss research groups.

Between 1939 and 1945 the hotel was taken over by the military and turned into a military hospital. The Hausers were keen on hotel catering and gathered valuable experience during their stays in Egypt and other countries.
