Switzerland Travel Guide

Switzerland is a landlocked country in Central Europe. It has borders with France to the west, Italy to the south, Austria and Liechtenstein to the east and Germany to the north.

Switzerland was founded more than 700 years ago. Long years of peace have left their mark on our heritage, history and culture.

The Swiss are a friendly and hospitable people, though somewhat reserved at times. Life in the towns and cities is secure. The Swiss share an independent spirit, a respect for tradition and no fewer than four languages and dozens of dialects. The Swiss love for partying isn't yet widely known. But the seasons are marked by traditional festivals and popular pageants.

Every major Swiss city honours its own symphony, opera or theatre, where acclaimed international artists appear. Smaller towns and villages prize their chamber groups or quartets. The Bern, Willisau and Montreux Jazz Festivals rival in recognition with the classical music events of Lucerne and Gstaad, to name just a few.

About 700 museums round out a rich cultural life. You'll find outstanding, internationally acclaimed art collections and specialized museums for every interest. Today scores of medieval castles and venerable mansions are open for a look around. Some house superb museums, other wonderful restaurants. Churches, monasteries and abbey libraries hold precious legacies of the ages.

Things to do

Switzerland offers the ideal holiday destination for those who like to be active on holiday and enjoy new adventures.

Switzerlands beautiful landsacpe makes it a top destination for hikers. To carelessly pass by wine cellars and traditional pubs would be a crime. After all, those who want to experience the scenery with all the senses should also taste it. And after a glass of Chasselas the dynamic uphills and downhills of the trail to Lutry are twice as much fun

In the winter months why not take to the slopes, whether your an experieneces skiier or trying it out for the first time. Skiing is not the only sport you can enjoy, why not try out snowtubing, air board or snow kiting which are just some examples of the many activities on offer.

Explore the culture of Switzerland by visiting the salt mines and learn about the history of white gold.A visit to the museum and the mine, visitors see the various techniques of salt mining from the year 1684 to the present and the history of this white gold. A small mine train takes visitors into the subterranean world and to the restaurant located in the mountain at a depth of 400 meters. Unusual adventure tours offer treks into the mines and tunnels that date from the 17th century.Why not visit Mario Botta's Mountain Church.Seen from outside, the building is elliptical in shape, with a slanting roof and black and white stripes. The interior has a dizzying checkerboard design in the same colors. This is the church that was designed by the well–known architect, Mario Botta – the Chiesa di San Giovanni Battista at Fusio. There are so many more cultural attractions across the whole of Switxerland waiting for you to discover them!

Switzerland is renowed for its high quality cheeses and a must for cheese lovers is a visit to a weekly market to see the stands of the farmers and cheese makers stacked high with wheels of cheese, many of which have been made in summer pastures.

Chcocloate lovers will also be in their element as Chocolate had been made in Switzerland since the 18th century but it gained its reputation at the end of the 19th century with the invention of modern techniques such as conching and tempering which enabled its production on a high quality level. Also a breakthrough was the invention of milk chocolate in 1875 by Daniel Peter. The Swiss are the world's largest consumers of chocolate. The Swiss Chocolate Train is a joint venture of GoldenPass Services and Cailler–Nestl. Ride in first–class comfort in a "Belle Epoque" Pullman car, vintage 1915 and/or the modern panorama car affording stunning views of the vineyards surrounding Montreux and medieval Gruyres.Chocosuisse is an association of 18 different chocolate makers, large and small, some of which are open to visits by the public. Visitors can learn how chocolate is produced from an audiovisual presentation, follow a tour, have a tasting, and buy chocolate to take away from the factory shop.
