With a never ending array of mountain resorts, forests and castles to explore, Switzerland is the place to go to, if you are on the lookout for an adventure. Whether it be a thorough exploration of the Swiss Alps, a quick trip round around Lake Geneva or a magnificent hike up the majestic Matterhorn, the sheer number of experiences that await you are mindboggling! A trip to Switzerland is the perfect opportunity to soak in that alpine air and really enjoy all the beauty that nature has in store for you!
Start your journey from the picturesque Geneva. Perfectly placed on the shorelines of Lake Geneva, this city is definitely a sight to behold. Take a walk around Jet d’Eau, pay your respects at St. Pierre Cathedral or visit the famed Place of Nations. Another must-have on your itinerary is a walk around the Old Town, which is peppered with quaint buildings and magnificent forms of architecture. Other attractions that should feature in your visit to Geneva include the Reformation Wall as well as the many magnificent parks that are found in this area.
Along with its cities, Switzerland also has some natural wonders that really should be sampled, one of the best being the Jungfrau Region. The perfect meld of magnificent scenery and modern creature comforts, this region brings to the table three towering mountains; the Jungfrau, the Monch and the Eiger. Packed in with these monoliths are endless valleys and meadows to travel through. You should also make some time to visit alpine villages like Wengsen and Saas Fee to truly experience this region!
While Switzerland will always be famed for its mountain peaks, one of the great attractions of the region is the Rhine Falls. One of Europe’s largest waterfalls, the sight of this massive column of water tumbling down will leave even the most stalwart of traveller lost for words. You may also wish to visit the Schoss Laufen, a magnificent castle that also houses an excellent restaurant, many shops as well as a good youth hostel. Along with Geneva, another city that is well worth the visit is Zurich. Offering an excellent view of the Alps, the city brings to the table dozens of museums, art galleries and shops to browse through. The city also offers travellers the most flamboyant nightlife to be enjoyed anywhere in this region!
Along with destinations, Switzerland also packs in a host of experiences that must be a part of your roster. Start by gazing at the magnificent medieval centre of St. Gallen. Immerse yourself in the country’s cultural heritage, soak in the picturesque buildings, statues and murals and lose yourself in the pages of history. Thrill seekers should also try their hand at conquering the mighty Matterhorn! One of the most famous peaks in the Alps, this difficult trek is one that the adventurous will treasure for life! You can also try your hand skiing, snowboarding or hiking.
