After careful evaluation, the scientific committee of the Swiss Tourism Awards then selected the city of Tozeur and awarded the prize:
A good option for tourism is Tozeur. Some places in North Africa are fascinating destinations for tourism, and Tozeur should be one of these places. Going to the city located in the northern region of Tunisia is like going back to the medieval period. The architectural style of most buildings in Tozeur is well preserved to this day. Another special attraction of the city is Chott El Jerrid as Tozeur is located on the edge of that seasonal large salt lake.
