Where to go in Switzerland
With most of the country being taken up with a portion of the Alps mountain range, a trip to Switzerland is hardly complete without setting foot on the famous slopes.
Easily accessible by car, there are many walking trails to access and make the most of.
Perhaps choose to walk in the shadow of in the infamous Matterhorn along the Zermatt Lake Trail.
If hiking is not to your taste, there are cable cars available to some of Switzerland′s summits, making the spectacular views accessible to all.
For cheese fans, tour dairy areas, meet the cows and sample the regional cheeses. Indulge in fondue at Fribourg.
The cows also played a pivotal role in the invention of milk chocolate.
Pay a visit to Nestles Callier Factory or simply explore city streets to find chocolatiers stores.
To simply soak up a unique country with several distinct cultural regions and languages – thanks to borders with France in the west, Italy in the south, Germany in the north and Romansch in Graubunden in the east – grab a map and plot out a driving route.
In such a small country, you can get a long way in a short time!
