Cultural Trips

"Leave your country in search of loftiness and travel! For in travel there is five benefits:

Relief of adversity, earning of livelihood, knowledge, etiquette, and noble companionship."  — Imam as-Shafi

We comitted ourselves to the idea of Networking - that's why with our segment "YSMN Cultural Trips” we want to bring the networking experience to a new level!

The cultural trips provide an opportunity for the network of Swiss Muslim students and young professionals to connect more closely but this time by travelling. This meaningful travelling will enable Muslim activists to collectively enrich their knowledge of the Muslim past and engage with the diversity of present-day Muslim ways of living. Travelling while reflecting through place and time.

Are you interested to find out about rich Muslim cities and civilizations that shaped the world? To travel with a group and collectively discover diverse Muslim traditions and cultures? To explore how the Muslim past relates to you in your situation in Switzerland?


  1. Expanding our knowledge of the history of Muslims through travelling.
