Switzerland has one of the most breathtaking landscapes in the world, it’s truly hard to beat. The country is full of stunning lakes, majestic mountains, pretty towns, and villages out of a fairy tale.

While traveling in Switzerland is very expensive and can’t be on a budget, it should be visited at least once in a lifetime. The country is super safe and picture-perfect no matter which season you visit.

A cosmopolitan city and global banking center, Zurich is a great starting point for your trip to Switzerland. Strolling through the Altstadt, having beers by the lake, hiking up to Uetliberg, and going for a swim in the fresh waters of the Limmat are some of the best attractions in Zurich.

Explore the region around Lake Geneva and enjoy the scenery. Visit all the beautiful towns, including Geneva, Lausanne, and Montreux. The capital of Switzerland, Bern is a gorgeous historic city to walk around and visit some museums.

Basel is a laid-back city and it has the most popular festival in Switzerland, the Fasnacht Spring Carnival. It’s a must-see event if you are in the country during that time.

A trip to Switzerland must include the Swiss Alps whether you visit in the summer or winter. By far, Matterhorn is the most famous mountain in Europe, located between Switzerland and Italy. You need to make your way to Zermatt to see the iconic peak.

Interlaken is a popular option for outdoor activities and picturesque landscapes. You can go hiking along the lakes, see waterfalls, and do adventure sports, such as skydiving, paragliding, and river rafting. It’s a great base for going skiing too.

Lucerne is another amazing location in the country for going on numerous hikes. It’s simply stunning here and you can’t have enough of breathtaking views of the mountains.
