1st August 2018 : The national holiday is especially festive in Silvaplana. From 10.00 clock many attractions take place. The Federal Charter (Bundesbrief) of 1291 opens with the words “In the year of the lord 1291, at the beginning of the month of August”. The document unified three cantons in the area of modern-day Switzerland and is considered one of the country's most important founding documents. Switzerland has been celebrating National Day on August 1 since 1891. There are celebrations in communities all around Switzerland. In most cases, the official ceremonies include a prayer and the singing of the Swiss national anthem (the Schweizerpsalm). At 8:00 p.m. (20:00) church bells ring throughout the countryThe Bundesfeier is a public holiday in all of Switzerland. Offices, banks, schools and businesses are closed. Public transport runs on a reduced schedule. EnJoy EnJoy

Really heavy snowfall happening at the moment. Laying quickly.Not that I am a fan, but I thought Shania Twain is a her, not a he, and she is married to a Swiss, so could very well live in Switzerland, as well as her native Canada.

31dec17-- A Thank You to our host, Gemeinde Silvaplana, for sponsoring this 'live cam' view of Silvaplana Lake and Piz Surlej, majestic.
Suddenly everything is turning white, will the snow be around for the rest of the winter?
Wow, that mountain range is stunning, i have never heard of this place so i will have to do some research. Switzerland looks very lovely to me.
16.08.17. I think I meant to type 'cams'! Anyway someone was listening as we have a brand new cam in England, St. Ives - looks like it went live today. Raining there at the mo. :(
Hi back Luvtotravel - quite agree we need more fans in the UK & France also.
Hi Messer, that is the very reason I was resisting signing in. But now I have, so I guess I can also comment for others to enjoy reading about the places they are viewing. I am wishing for more Skyline webcam views of the Engadin. Bernina Suot, Pontresina, Zuoz, Alp Grum etc. Anyone want to sponsor one of these places? I wish I could.
Hello Luvtotravel - I'm afraid it's addictive - once you start! :)
