Switzerland is known for
many things: its cold climate, mountainous terrain and its political neutrality,
which is perhaps brought on by its topographical isolation and being one
of the most mountainous countries in Europe. In fact, many Swiss people,
especially those who live in the Swiss Alps still retain their culture,
traditions and Alpine characteristics, largely unspoiled by the marks of
the modern world. These people usually reside in villages near the Alps
known as Laax.
|Believe it or not, more
than 70 percent of its land area is covered by the Swiss Alps, which is
known for its jagged peaks and steep gorges. The Pennine Alps range, for
example, has Switzerland's highest peak, the Dufourspitze of Monte Rosa,
which stands at 15,203 feet. This is one of the ultimate travel spots in
Switzerland. Of course, mountains there are not all so gigantic in height.
The Jura, for instance, are smaller and lower. This is a popular travel
destination in Switzerland because of its cross-country skiing.
The Jura Mountains are where
Swiss watchmaking first began. The Matterhorn is another high peak in the
Alps that travelers in Switzerland should not miss. At 14,688 feet, it
towers above the state Valais Canton.
When traveling to Switzerland,
one thing that any person should remember is that it's going to be really
cold. Never forget to pack a winter coat especially when you are going
in winter months or if you are going to the Alps, where it can be awfully
cold. The resort of Château-d'Oex, which is nestled in a valley in
the Alps is famous for its skiing, hiking and hot-air balloon activities.
Switzerland is also known
for its picturesque views of lakes and streams. These bodies of water provide
travelers with a nice view. The river Rhine is principal river in the country
but there are other river systems that one should also look into, including
Rhône, Ticino, and Inn. Lakes in the Alpine region are gorgeous and
any traveler in Switzerland will instantly fall in love with its serene
and glassy surface. Among those that they should visit are the Lake Geneva,
Lugano, Lake Maggiore, where Switzerland's lowest point lies; Lake
of Neuchâtel, and Lake of Lucerne.
|Another lake that is worthy
of note is Lake Geneva, whish is considered to be Central Europe's largest
lake. Travelers in Switzerland should also not miss the Staubbach Falls
One of the ultimate travel
spots in Switzerland is the Gothic Cathedral designed by Matthäus
Ensinger from Ulm. It is an example of 14th to 16th century architecture.
Various international agencies can also be found in the capital city, including
the Universal Postal Union.
Its second largest city,
Zurich is purported to be the financial center of Switzerland as well as
an important commercial and manufacturing center while the city of Basel
is noted for its textile and clothing industry.
Lausanne, on the other hand,
is a city in the western part of Switzerland. It is home to such famous
celebrities as Voltaire, Gibbon, and Rousseau as well as the center for
Swizerland's iron industry. Though largely known for its watchmaking and
jewelry industry, Geneva is also the world's diplomatic center. It is where
the headquarters of the United Nations (UN). The International Labor Organization
(ILO) and the World Health Organization (WHO) is also located there too.
