  • Drivers crossing from one side of Geneva’s lake to the other have little choice but to take their chances on the busy Mont Blanc Bridge in the far western corner. Whether or not to build a tunnel short cut has been discussed since the 1960s; finally, on 28 September, citizens will have the chance to vote on the issue. Opponents say it’s too expensive, environmentally unfriendly and might even cause congestion as it pulls traffic through the city. Even supporters fear it might jeopardise another, longer tunnel project further up the lake which qualifies for federal funding. A vote in 1988 saw two thirds vote for a new lake crossing though a similar number rejected the plan in 1996.

  • Popularised by playboy Opel heir – and former husband of Brigitte Bardot – Gunter Sachs in the 1960s, the hammerhead island of Sylt, one kilometre south of Danish border on the North Sea coast, remains one of Germany’s most glamorous resorts. Hence presumably why Mercedes think it the ideal place to showcase its new S-Class coupe. Only accessible by car-train - €90 return for the 35 minute journey - there are currently three Michelin starred restaurants to serve the permanent population of 21,000. In the west there is 40km of continuous beach, in the east meadows and heathlands. 606 miles from Calais. See sylt.de. Photo @MercedesBenz.
