Best Places to Visit in Switzerland

Banks, chocolate, cheese, lakes - and Alpine slopes, that's what Switzerland is known for. Bordered by Germany, France and Italy, it borrows the best of all these countries, while maintaining its unique identity. Surveys have consistently put it down as one of the best places in the world to be born, live and be happy - the same is true as a travel destination: happiness guaranteed. There are over 200 mountains more than 3000 metres high - with some of the finest powder in the world to schuss down. And in summer, these slopes transform into Alpine meadows of the most unimaginable beauty, perfect for hikes and bike rides. That's 365 days of sheer vacation heaven.
