Swiss cards

Thank God tomorrow is my day off and i'll finally have some time to sleep, clean and organize my cards. But soon i'll have lots of free time... i'll be on holidays in 21 days :D That means lots of mornings in bed and when i'm not in bed, i'll be probably travelling, which means, more cards!!!! Well, i guess i should that care of those i already have here first.
These two were also sent by Emerich and the 2nd one is from a new unesco site, the Lavaux, Vineyard Terraces, on the list since 2007.

"The Dents du Midi is a mountain chain situated in the Chablais Alps in the Canton of Valais, Switzerland. It is composed of seven distinct summits and reaches a height of 3257 metres (10,686 feet). Dominating the Val-d'Illiez and the Rhône Valley, to the south it faces the Lac de Salanfe, an artificial reservoir. Geologically it makes up a part of the massif Haut-Giffre." - in: wikipedia

"The Lavaux Vineyard Terraces, stretching for about 30 km along the south-facing northern shores of Lake Geneva from the Chateau de Chillon to the eastern outskirts of Lausanne in the Vaud region, cover the lower slopes of the mountainside between the villages and the lake. Although there is some evidence that vines were grown in the area in Roman times, the present vine terraces can be traced back to the 11th century, when Benedictine and Cistercian monasteries controlled the area. It is an outstanding example of a centuries-long interaction between people and their environment, developed to optimize local resources so as to produce a highly valued wine that has always been important to the economy." - in:
