Situated in the heart of Europe, Switzerland has a lot to offer.
Visiting Switzerland will not fail to surprise you!
In this mountainous country of Central Europe, you can do a multitude of activities: put large sums of money in an account, enjoy a fondue, go greet the cows in the green meadows or discover the wonderful landscapes, whatever the season you plan to stay.
To help you visit Switzerland at its best, here is a small guide to the most beautiful places to see.
The Glacier Express
Not really a place, but rather a journey: the Glacier Express is a train from St. Moritz to Zermatt via the cities of Chur, Andermatt and Brig. During the summer season, two trains make the journey: one leaving from Disentis and the other from Davos. Either way, the spectacular scenery you will pass through will leave you with unforgettable memories! Jungfrau
It is in the Bernese Alps massif that we find the Jungfrau, this summit culminating at more than 4150 meters of altitude! You can admire a gigantic glacier which unfortunately melts year after year, or practice typical mountain activities such as skiing, mountaineering or paragliding. Jungfraujoch
Nearby, the Jungraujoch is a pass connecting the Mönche and the Jungfrau, right in the heart of the Bernese Alps between the cantons of Bern and Valais: it culminates at 3471 meters above sea level and can be reached via an astonishing railway line. You can even eat there in a delicious restaurant offering a breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains. The Titlis
This summit of the Uranian Alps, which rises to an altitude of almost 3238 meters, is certainly not the largest or most prestigious in the country, but it offers the opportunity to enjoy winter sports as it is an integral part of the Titlis ski area, considered by some to be one of the best in Europe. Ideal when you are looking for what to do in Switzerland during the winter season! The Eiger
The Eiger is a 3,970-meter peak, also located in the Bernese Alps, whose north face represented one of the “three great problems of the Alps” for experienced climbers who often found death there! Today, many tourists come to admire this vertiginous individualized summit, or even attempt its ascent. Lake Lucerne
This glacial lake is located in the heart of Switzerland. It bears its name badly since it is currently divided between the cantons of Lucerne, Nidwalden, Obwalden, Schwyz and Uri! Measuring nearly 38 kilometers long, it is located at an altitude of 434 meters and attracts many visitors looking for things to do in Switzerland, and can practice many fun activities, summer and winter! The Matterhorn
The Matterhorn is one of the most famous mountains in the country and is also one of its emblems, as it appears on the logos of many Swiss brands! At 4478 meters high, its north face is, like that of the Eiger and Grandes Jorasses, considered as one of the three great north faces of the Alps. If you come to visit Switzerland, don’t miss to take a jump! The Rhine Falls
Watching Europe’s largest waterfall from close up, feeling the roar of the water masses throughout your body – this is possible at the Rhine Falls near Schaffhausen. A boat takes visitors to the castles, to the basin of the falls and even to the imposing rock in the middle of the bubbling waters. The Aletsch glacier
This colossal glacier is quite simply… the largest glacier in the Alps: if you have come to visit Switzerland and are passing in the south of the country, in the canton of Valais – one of the most beautiful in the country, by the way – it would be a great pity not to stop there to discover the beauty of this breathtakingly large area! Lake Thun
In the Bernese Oberland, Lake Thun is very close to the town of the same name: this alpine body of water welcomes visitors who come to take advantage of the numerous water sports facilities in the surrounding area, and will also delight hiking tourists who come to visit Switzerland.
