Abstract: The paper sets out the role of cross-marketing in Swiss tourism. So far, theory and research have failed to provide the appropriate definition of this phenomenon. By applying a system model of brand antecedents and consequences, the authors reveal the widespread usage of Switzerland as a brand. Regarding the two detected images, it seems that the positioning of a brand is inconsistently applied. On the one hand, there is the modern image of Switzerland, including its openness and competitiveness within a highly developed environment and commonly known brands, such as Rolex, UBS, or NestlĂ©. On the other hand, there exists the fantasy image of Switzerland, including figures, such as Heidi and William Tell, reflecting a world, to put it mildly, which has nothing in common with reality. The authors conclude that Switzerland as a brand is positioned rather indistinctively.
