Why Travel Switzerland?


Switzerland is a mountainous Central European country which is home to numerous lakes, villages and the high peaks of the Alps. Old Towns within its cities contain medieval landmarks like capital Bern’s Zytglogge clock tower and Cathedral of Bern. The country is also a destination for its ski resorts and hiking trails.


When in Switzerland, don’t miss to admire Switzerland's traditional Appenzell villages—the most traditional canton, with its picturesque villages; next go to Basel for the Basler Fasnacht (a pre-Lenten carnival), with three days of grand masked parties and street parades with fancy costumes. Later book a date with the medieval library at St Gallen (a UNESCO World Heritage treasure); visit the capital city of Bern on the Aare River; capture history at Chillon Castle; climb Little Matterhorn in a cablecar; explore the beautiful Berner Oberland landscape that flourishes with spectacular scenery including famous peaks (Jungfrau, Mönch and Eiger), mountain lakes, alpine streams and wild flowers.


Apart from these, do travel by train through stunning Alpine scenery on the Glacier Express, feel rejuvenated and rested at Graubünden, lace up your hiking boots and explore over 50,000km (31,070 miles) of marked trails, see both sides of Lausanne—highlights include the Cathédrale Notre-Dame and the Musée Olympic (Olympic Museum) and take a scenic road trip to Ticino.


Switzerland’s special purchases include embroidery and linen, Bernese woodcarving, chocolate, cheese, Swiss army knives and luxury handmade clocks and watches. Zürich is the shopping capital, centred on the luxury boutiques and department stores of the celebrated Bahnhofstrasse.
