Discover Switzerland

From bustling cities to glacial lakes and awe-inspiring mountain ranges, Switzerland's varied natural landscapes are a joy to explore. The stunning alpine region attracts guests from around the world who journey to one of the many fantastic winter sport resorts to ski and snowboard amongst the breath-taking scenery.

The star of the Switzerland's alpine region is the Matterhorn, located in Zermatt. Matterhorn mountain is the most easily recognised and most-photographed mountain in the world due to its symmetric pyramid shape.

Often built besides charming lakes, Switzerland's dynamic cities perfectly combine ancient history with contemporary city life. The Old Towns of Bern and Lucerne and the historic centre of Zurich feature an abundance of well-preserved historical monuments and incredible architecture including one of the oldest covered bridges in Europe. The country is also home to world-class modern art and boasts a number of museums and galleries.

Switzerland's major cities are cosmopolitan with exciting cultures that successfully embrace upcoming trends. There are Michelin starred restaurants, lakeside bars with craft beers and a range of festivals throughout the year. As well as embracing the new, Switzerland has kept its many much-loved traditions alive and tourists can enjoy ancient markets, folkloric fairs, flag waving and alp-horn concerts.

When it comes to Swiss food and drink, cheese fondue is of course, the star of the show. In fact, a trip to Switzerland would not be complete without trying the huge pot of melted cheese with fresh bread cubes to dip in. Other than cheese and mouth-watering chocolate, Swiss cuisine combines influences from German, French and North Italian dishes. The Swiss white wines are notably excellent and locally crafted beers are a favourite with tourists.
