Switzerland has so much more than indulgent cheese, beautiful watches, and mouth watering chocolate. The nation feels straight out of a storybook with its snow capped mountains, quaint villages, idyllic lakefront towns, and beautiful cities. The country is a must-visit for all outdoor enthusiasts thanks to its breathtaking hiking, biking, and skiing opps. For the latter, head to Zermatt, which, at more than 5,000 feet in elevation, is ideal for hitting the (extra-steep) slopes. Here, you’ll also find swanky boutiques, elegant eateries, and a glam apres-ski scene. Zurich combines elements of old and new. Today, the city has transformed into a modern metropolis; however, its history and charm remains intact. Geneva is framed by mountain views, while Basel is located along the banks of the Rhine River. In lovely Lucerne, you’ll be instantly charmed by the one-of-a-kind Old Town, which is adorned with colorful buildings. Here, you’ll also find Chapel Bridge, a historic wooden footbridge dating back to the 1300s. Lakefront Lausanne is home to the Olympic Museum and Olympic Park — plus prime boating opps and waterfront activities along Lake Geneva. Interlaken is a romantic resort town boasting blue-green waters plus mountain and meadow vistas. The Swiss capital of Bern has a charming Old Town that dates back to the 12th century.
