Switzerland Travel Guide and Tourism

Switzerland is home to a magical alpine landscape with a smattering of rolling hills, lush grasslands and pristine lakes. On the shore of Lake Geneva, tourists can marvel at the Castle of Chillon near the resort town of Montreux, and later get a glass of wine at the Lavaux vineyards. Also, offering the best of Switzerland on a platter, Geneva perched on the Rhône Valley offers dizzying views of the Mont Blanc and hosts over 200 international organizations including the European headquarters of the United Nations. Ticino, a southern Switzerland canton boasts of the luxurious Castles of Bellinzona. Another fascinating place to visit in Switzerland is the Top of Europe, the village which has Europe’s highest post office, at 3500m. Embodying Swiss perfection, Zurich’s Altstadt district dotted with boutiques and restaurants are a major contributing factor to the booming Switzerland tourism. A prominent French influence can be observed all around the country, especially in its sidewalk cafes and vintage mansard roofs. In the capital city of Bern, Kunstmuseum (Fine Arts Museum), sustains artwork dating back to the 1800s, with many a masterpiece by the likes of Cézanne and Matisse. Also a haven for the adventure enthusiasts, a trip to Switzerland guarantees a range of activities from skiing to climbing the loftiest of the Alps.
