Places to See in Switzerland
Alpine grandeur reflected in shimmering lakes between verdant valleys with a scattering of chic cities. It has the Eiger, Matterhorn, one of the last Alpine peaks to be climbed, and Piz Palü on the Italian border. It offers a wide range of winter and summer sports, from easy to exacting. The less energetic can take Europe’s highest mountain railway to the Jungfraujoch and the only UNESCO World Natural Heritage in the Alps. This is the ‘Top of Europe’ at 3,454 metres and offers stunning views as far as the Vosges in France and Germany’s Black Forest. A trip to this wonderland of snow, ice and rock is the highlight of any holiday in Switzerland.
