Switzerland is a landlocked country in central Europe. It is bordered by France, Germany, Austria, Liechtenstein and Italy. It is Europe’s most mountainous country with the Alps in the middle and south and the Jura in the north-west. The climate varies greatly, depending on altitude and relief, but in general summers aremild and winters cold with heavy snowfall.

Manufacturing of specialised products is important. Other industries produce chemicals, pharmaceuticals, textiles and food products. Banking and tourism are important activities.

The population of about 7.000.000 live in an area of about 42.000 square kilometers. Languages spoken are German, French, Italian and Romansch.

What’s richer than Swiss chocolate, watches, clocks, and bank accounts? Switzerland’s scenery, of course, which outshines its decadent exports with Alpine paradises like Interlaken, Zermatt, and the Jungfrau region. Situated in equally idyllic settings, hubs Zurich and Geneva also offer small-town charm on cobblestoned streets—plus plenty of those famous souvenirs.

Visitors should have no trouble finding things to do when vacationing in Switzerland. One of the most popular reasons to travel here are the mountains. The infamous Alps dominate the landscape through the entire country and offer plenty of sightseeing (we recommend checking out the Matterhorn). And if you want to do more than just snap some photos of them, skiing can be found in almost all mountain towns.

And Switzerland isn’t just about natural beauty. Tourist attractions such as the Chateau de Chillion and the Chapel Bridge stand up to the scenic vistas of this country. With an abundance of activities, it’s no wonder that so many flights go in and out of Switzerland each day. And finding a perfect hotel is easy with all our member recommendations.

Our writers explore Switzerland from the family-farmed vineyards on the shores of Lake Geneva to culture in Zurich. We visit the Montreux Jazz Festival, Geneva Auto Salon, and wine festivals. We look at bears in Bern and play with St Bernard puppies in Martigny. Endless hiking and skiing opportunities abound in the Alps, where accommodation ranges from opulent spas and five-star resorts to modest internet-free mountain huts. We enjoy spectacular cable car rides, train journeys, rack railways, and steamboat cruises – all at half price. Switzerland is more than just mountains and tired clichés.

So pack your parka and practice your dismount from the ski lift, because you can be to Switzerland in no time.
