So what's it like?
Against a stunning backdrop of snow capped peaks and deep blue lakes, Switzerland may well be just about one of the most spectacularly beautiful holiday destinations out there. With a fantastic range of activities, places to see and things to do it offers a good amount of variety.
The towns and cities offer a wealth of history including castles, bridges and medieval buildings integrated with a modern and vibrant culture that includes art galleries and music venues.
The regional differences give rise to a tantalising array of food and drink. German influences provide smoked pork, sausages and delicious rosti. Italian delicacies include risotto, pastas and pizzas, whilst there are wonderful French breads and patisseries in the West. Swiss cheese and wine are some of the best in the world so make sure you indulge yourself.
Travelling across the landscape is part of the charm of a trip to Switzerland and it is a pleasure. Traditional cogwheels crank safely up towards mountain peaks and panoramic trains move snugly and serenely over the landscape all the while offering an incredible insight into vast mountains, tranquil lakes and intruiguing cities.
