Vote for the Matterhorn as one of the new seven world wonders of nature!

Our magnificent, stone Miss Switzerland is in the running.

The selection of the “New seven world wonders of nature" is made in three steps: Firstly, the best 77 are chosen from the nominees throught public votes, so per category the best 11 go through to the next round. Votes can still be cast. Then 21 natural wonders will be chosen by a jury led by Frederico Mayor Zaragoza, former Director-General of UNESCO. From these 21, the seven winners will eventually be chosen in a long decision-making process and in 2011 the seven winners will finally be announced.

Worldwide, 261 candidates from 222 countries are taking part. They are divided into seven different categories ranging from landscapes to islands, caves and rivers. With such competition we need to stand our ground.
