Your guide to Switzerland

Welcome to Switzerland

Switzerland is one of the most scenic places on the planet, with some of the popular destinations here set against gorgeous bodies of water. The town of Lugano rests on the banks of a beautiful azure lake. Zurich and Lucerne are located on glorious waterways, and Basel boasts of the river Rhine for company.

The country draws visitors for its ample outdoor pursuits and its vibrant urban centers, which can be explored against postcard-perfect backdrops. The swanky ski resort towns of St. Moritz and Verbier show off the breathtaking mountain vistas in style, cities such as Lausanne and Zurich exude European chic, while Bern and Geneva promise stunning architecture and medieval charm.

There’s plenty to view indoors, too, in some of the amazing galleries and museums in Switzerland. Among the best are the Kunsthaus in Zurich, featuring impressive examples of the Dada movement; the modern masters found in Basel’s Beyeler Foundation; and the Paul Klee Center in Bern.


How do I get around Switzerland?

Most international flights arrive at Zurich Airport (ZRH), EuroAirport Basel Mulhouse Freiburg (BSL), Bern-Belp Airport (BRN), or Geneva Airport (GVA), each conveniently placed just outside the municipality they serve. There are also frequent trains from Paris to Basel and Geneva. The Swiss, renowned for their punctuality, have an excellent train network within the country, connecting all the major cities with smaller towns; panoramic train routes pass through the most scenic lakes and mountains. The Swiss Travel Pass allows unlimited travel on trains, buses, and boats. Note that if you’re planning to drive, the Swiss drive on the right-hand side of the road and you need a sticker, or vignette, to drive on the highways (they can be purchased online). There are plenty of lakeside cycling routes throughout the country, and bikes can be hired from most train stations.


When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Switzerland?

If you’re seeking snowy thrills and winter sport adventures on the exclusive Alpine pistes, then arrive between December and March, though note that the slopes can be crowded around Christmastime. During the rest of the year, temperatures can range considerably depending on where you are, with towns on the Italian border much warmer than mountain towns like Jungfraujoch. The famous Montreux Jazz Festival takes place in July, while Swiss National Day, with celebrations all around the country, is in August.


What are the top things to do in Switzerland?

Trek to Jungfraujoch

If your desire is to get up close and personal with the Alps, then a pilgrimage to this region is a must. Known as the top of Europe, Jungfraujoch is Europe’s highest railway station, a mere 3,454 metres above sea level, with a dramatic rising ride that travels through the heart of the famous Eiger, featuring unbelievable views at the summit. This is mountain climbing with all the effort removed.

Delight in Fraumünster Church

There’s so much to do in Zurich, with a plethora of galleries, museums, and architectural gems. But your eye can’t help but be drawn to the towering green spire of the Fraumünster Church. The church is an excellent landmark to help you navigate around this wonderful city and a fascinating place in its own right. Built on the banks of the Limmat river, it features a stunning interior and stained-glass windows created by internationally renowned artists.

Create movie magic at Chaplin’s World

A little off the beaten track, this fascinating museum is dedicated to the world-famous comedian. Situated in Charlie Chaplin’s former home in Corsier-sur-Vevey, not far from Lausanne, this museum doesn’t simply rely on film memorabilia locked away in glass cases, but features innovative interactive displays celebrating the great man’s life, including sets and equipment that allow you to create your own movie magic.
