Highlights of Switzerland

Locarno

Near the Italian border and offering sweeping views of Lake Maggiore, Locarno is the perfect place to while away a day or two in Switzerland. Take a summer boat trip on the lake, or explore the charming piazzas of the historic Old Town. The medieval Castello Visconteo castle is well worth visiting and on the Brissago islands in the lake, travellers will find a welcoming botanical garden.

Zermatt

Renowned for its proximity to the Matterhorn, Zermatt is the place to head for incredible views of this famous peak. A ski resort in the winter months, in summer Zermatt becomes a great place for hiking and relaxation, with cars (apart from electric taxis) banned from the town. Find a local restaurant to sample cheesy raclette and enjoy a warming drink.

Lausanne

Home to the International Olympic Committee, Lausanne is a great place to learn more about the history of the games, the Olympic Museum being one of the city's main attractions. Located on the northern shore of Lake Geneva, you're never far from a waterside view, and the long promenade is a great place to find a bar or restaurant in which to dine.

Lauterbrunnen

Like a scene straight from The Sound of Music, Lauterbrunnen is a tiny village located in a steep valley, home to tumbling waterfalls, snow-capped peaks, hiking trails and cable cars. It's one of the best places in Switzerland to connect with nature, so we recommend you strike out and explore, breathing in the fresh mountain air as you go!

Zurich

Often recognised as one of the world’s most liveable cities, Zurich is framed by alpine mountains and set where the Limmat River meets Lake Zurich’s shores. As Switzerland’s largest and wealthiest metropolis, Zurich is both an economic hub and a centre for recreation. Its attractions include dozens of museums and art galleries as well as an old town filled with Renaissance buildings, winding lanes and tall church steeples.

Lucerne

With its beautiful lakeside setting and impressive mountain panorama, it’s no wonder Lucerne has been a popular destination since the 19th century. The medieval Chapel Bridge forms the city’s centrepiece and is one of the oldest wooden bridges in Europe. Full of attractive churches and town squares, Lucerne is also home to the 17th century Jesuit church, regarded as Switzerland’s first sacral Baroque building.

Lugano

Surrounded by lush hills and perched on the shores of Lake Lugano, this city offers a diverse range of activities and attractions. First and foremost, Lake Lugano is a focal point of the city's charm. Visitors can enjoy boat rides, swim in the crystal-clear waters, or simply relax along the picturesque promenade, taking in the serene views and Mediterranean feel. The city also boasts a vibrant cultural scene with museums, galleries, and theatres.

Interlaken

Straddled between the glacier-fed Thun and Brienz, Interlaken is Switzerland’s biggest adventure destination. Overlooked by the iconic white peaks of the Mönch, Eiger and Jungfrau mountains, the town is the gateway to Switzerland’s magnificent Jungfrau region. Adrenaline-filled activities include hang-gliding, glacier trekking, skydiving, canyoning and white-water rafting to name a few.
