Switzerland Highlights



Officially the Swiss Confederation, is a landlocked country at the crossroads of Western, Central and Southern Europe. Switzerland is having land borders with Italy, Austria, France, and Liechtenstein.

Switzerland consists of twenty-six cantons (same as a province or a state) located in central Europe bordered by Austria-France-Germany and Italy. Switzerland has four official languages German 65% French (22%) Italian (10%) and Romansh (3%)

Some must see places

  1. The Matterhorn, Switzerland’s iconic pointed peak, the charming village of Zermatt on the base of the mountain being a top international resort.
  2. The Jungfraujoch, it has the longest Glacier in Europe and at 3454 meters an observation terrace.
  3. Grindelwald, a glacier village in the Jungfrau region surrounded by snow-capped mountains.
  4. Interlaken, a great popular summer holiday resort. More than forty-five mountain railways, cable cars, chairlifts and ski lifts look after tourist summer and winter. Or hop on board the paddle steamer and enjoy the scenery from the lake.
  5. Lucerne, a medieval town surrounded by high mountains and a car free centre.
  6. Lake Geneva, Europe’s largest Alpine Lake and Switzerland’s most popular cities (Geneva, Lausanne, and Montreux)
  7. St Moritz, together with Davos two of the world top mountain destinations. Adding to all this spectacular mountain scenery, St. Moritz is a cultural crossroads. Romansch, German, Italian, French, and English are all spoken in the surrounding areas – not to mention the different languages of the many well-heeled international visitors and expats.
  8. Lake Lugano and Lake Maggiore are both in the Italian speaking part of Switzerland. The area has a real taste of the Mediterranean. Citrus, figs, palms, and pomegranates flourish in the mild climate here – even as snow-capped peaks beckon in the distance.
  9. The Rhine Falls at Schaffhausen are the largest falls in Central Europe and is the start of the Rhine River
