Top Things to do in Switzerland

1) Lakes to visit in Switzerland

Best lakes to see in Switzerland

One of my favorite tourist areas in Switzerland is around Lake Geneva. Try visiting Montreux and then take a boat ride on one of Europe’s largest lakes. Hike up to Chateau de Chillon, a fairytale castle overlooking Lake Geneva from a rocky peninsula, or take an evening stroll around Lausanne. If you’re looking for something more active, head off into Swiss Alps! The area around Interlaken has beautiful waterfalls and ski resorts; try hiking to Jungfraujoch (the highest point in Europe) for views you won’t forget. If you prefer skiing over hiking (or if it's winter), Gstaad and Klosters are also great places for hitting some slopes near Berne. And for those who just want to explore stunning mountain vistas, drive along Route du Soleil between Martigny and Sion--it might be one of Europe’s most scenic drives. It takes about three hours each way but doesn't follow any highways...just highlands through quaint towns with charming cafes along your way.

2) Mountains

Famous mountains in Switzerland
Topping many people’s lists for must-sees, Switzerland is home to some of Europe’s most beautiful peaks. Luckily, getting around is a breeze via cable cars, which offer a bird’s eye view of breathtaking Swiss landscapes. From Jungfraujoch (the highest) to Aletschgletscher (Europe’s largest), there are endless adventures waiting in these towering hills. Looking for more low-key alternatives? Try hiking one of the country’s 1,400 forest trails or skiing one of its 2,500 ski slopes (this last activity is particularly popular during winter). No matter how you decide to explore Switzerland’s snowcapped mountains and rolling pastures, you’re sure to experience magical scenes and encounters with nature at its finest. Consider planning your trip to Switzerland accordingly so that you can take full advantage of its mountainous beauty!

The Swiss Alps are breathtakingly beautiful, and a trip there is a must. You can’t fully appreciate its beauty from afar, though—you have to take a hike through it! The Swiss Alps is one of our favorites because of its stunning views and activities. Here are some of our favorite adventure spots in the Swiss Alps The Matterhorn – Located in Zermatt, Switzerland – It was first climbed by Edward Whymper on July 14, 1865 after several failed attempts that same year. Although only people experienced with climbing should try to conquer it without guides, you can easily admire from below for amazing pictures and videos. Paragliding at Lauterbrunnen -Situated between Bernese Oberland region and Lauterbrunnen valley, flying over Switzerland will give you an aerial view of everything around. There are many companies which offer paragliding sessions in all levels of difficulty. Swiss Chocolate– You just can’t leave Switzerland without trying their famous chocolate! Try Lindt chocolate store in Zurich where you can watch them make their chocolates right before your eyes.
