Climbers, photographers or nature-lovers alike must check out the Matterhorn, one of the most breath-taking natural sights in the world. Culture-lovers head to Geneva, where you’ll find over 190 different nationalities living and working together to make a truly multicultural destination. The country’s unique weather patterns make it ideal for snow-activities, and it has some of the best ski-resorts in the world, but don’t count it out as a good summer holiday spot too. Head to Ticino or Montreux for palm-lined avenues and warmer climes.
With more mountain peaks than any other European country, Switzerland has been called the ‘roof of Europe’, and on a clear day the Alps offer outstanding panoramas that will stay with you for ever. Add to that the locals’ stress-free way of life, some of the most pristine places of natural beauty you’ll find on the planet, and a train-system that will get you anywhere, easily, and you really can’t find a better country to visit.
