Switzerland Travel Guide

Switzerland is an amazing destination when it comes to lovely lakes, dense forest, ancient cities, scenic beauty, adventure sports and alpine landscape. Nestled in the heart of Europe, the country is known for its cold climate, mountainous topography and its political fairness.
This wonderful land has the most stable economy in the world. It is a rich and prosperous country and its standards of living, quality of education and health care are higher than any other European country. Literacy rate is almost 100 per cent and unemployment is negligible. Per capita income is highest and as such the user of computer and internet is also much higher.

It heads the list when we talk of a perfect vacation. Gothic Cathedral designed by Matth'us Ensinger from Ulm is one of the ultimate travel spots in Switzerland. It is an instance of 14th to 16th century architecture. Various world famous attractions in Switzerland include Museum of Art, Cathedrale de St-Pierre, Chateau de Chillon, Montreux, Vaud Great Church, Church of Our Lady, Jungfrau, the Jungfraujoch Experience, Bahnhofstrasse and Swiss National Museum.

During your Switzerland tour, keep this in mind that it's going to be indeed chilling as most part of the country has central European climate and temperature varies from place to place.

Never ever forget to pack a winter coat peculiarly when you are traveling in winter months or if you are going to the Alps, where it can be really freezing.

Summer proves to be the most suitable days for traveling except for the skiing. However, one can enjoy the skiing adventure during winter when temperature falls to zero degrees.

Many visitors come here for its picturesque views of lakes and streams. Rhine is the principal river in the country but there are other river systems that one should also look into, including Rhine, 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. Amongst those that they must visit are the Lake Geneva, Lake Lugano, Lake Maggiore, where Switzerland's lowest point lies; Lake of Neuchatel and Lake of Lucerne. Lake Geneva is considered to be Central Europe's largest lake. The Staubbach Falls in Bernis one of the must visit spot.

Geneva, Lucerne and Zurich are some of the places where adventure and ecstasy pervades everywhere. These cities are well connected and there are a number of luxury and budget hotels available for the tourist. But during the peak season, prior hotel booking is recommended.
