Switzerland Travel Tips & Suggestions

I've visited Lauterbrunnen twice and am captivated by this town and its amazing setting. One of my top five favorite natural setting in the world. In the fall the constant sound of the many waterfalls was very serene. In the winter this place was even more beautiful. The second time without the rain I was able to …
Bern is fun to walk around in, there are lots of cute fountains, but the Bear Pits are slightly depressing. I liked the art museum, but after one day I thought that I had seen most of the city.
Lausanne is a beautiful city, filled with young people, mostly university students. I definitely recommend going there, and the nightlife is fun as well.
The main reasons people come to Zermatt are for the Matterhorn and the skiing. There are great views of the Matterhorn and other mountains from the town (and better views from Kleine Matterhorn and Gornergrat) and most of the skiing is in the difficult range.
I will always have Lucerne in my heart.
Lugano is the best place to go in all of Europe!
Go out on the Marktgasse. Bars close early, so start early. Clubs can be located within reach. Zurich is a great city, enjoy it and be respectful.
Kandersteg is my favorite village in Switzerland. It is less crowded than Interlaken and seems less commercial. Mountains are close and there are many hiking trails with great views. The tourist office can suggest hikes and/or tell you about earning a gold, silver, or bronze hiking pin by completing six for each level.
OMG Gimmelwald Switzerland is the most beautiful place I have ever been.
I stayed in Fribourg, Switzerland in August 1990. It was a quiet, peaceful, and lovely place then.
Geneva is nice but very upscale. Definitely take the train around the lake to nearby Leysin and stay at the Hiking Sheep. If you get there for a summer celebration, you can watch the fireworks from a cliff looking over the lake.
I backpacked around Europe for six weeks last year with a friend, and Gryon was by far our favourite place. Even if you plan on staying there a day, you will stay for a week.
Davos has a pleasant and healthy pathogen-free climate with mountain air, which is especially beneficial for lung diseases such as asthma. This fact was discovered in the middle of the nineteenth century and by the beginning of the twentieth century, Davos was already an established health resort. Hotels, pensions, …
Since the first half of the nineteenth century, Montreux has developed as one of the most important tourist destinations in Switzerland. The economy of Montreux is mainly targeted towards tourism and more than forty percent of the work places are in the tourism sector. The town has several museums, including the Museum …
Geneva is one of the world's most global cities. Home to the United Nations and the Red Cross, Geneva is a great place to take in unique international culture. The city is, however, a financial mecca, and is not surprisingly ranked the fourth most expensive city in the world. Not only will travelers spend loads on food …
Thun is located in the centre of Switzerland, in the German-speaking canton of Bern, thirty kilometres outside of the Swiss capital. The town evolved at a spot where the River Aare is born out of Lake Thun, giving the place a magnificent natural setting, with the Swiss Alps towering above the skyline -- just adding to …
Luzern-Kriens is located in the central-northern part of Switzerland, in the German-speaking canton of Luzern. It is located in a western suburb of Luzern and it lies at the foot of Mount Pilatus, making it a quiet and scenic yet central place to discover what Luzern and the neighbouring area have to offer. Your Luzern …
Interlaken is located in the southwestern part of Switzerland, in the German-speaking canton of Bern. It is an extremely popular tourist destination, not only because of what the small town of Interlaken has to offer, but also because of its function as the gateway to the Swiss Alps and as the traffic junction for …
St. Moritz is one of the most famous winter sports resorts and winter spots in the Alps. Despite its population of only about five thousand permanent residents, St. Moritz looks like a cosmopolitan Alpine city. The town hosted the Winter Olympic Games on two occasions in the twentieth century and also hosted the Alpine …
Lugano, which has been developed heavily in the last twenty years, is the third-largest financial center in Switzerland after Zurich and Geneva. Worth seeing is the Parc Civico with its lush southern vegetation, which also houses the Villa Ciani. The city has a distinctly Italian character, especially the old town with …
