10 Best Places to Visit in Switzerland – Travel Video


Switzerland is a small country that sits smack
dab in the middle of the Alps, making for 360-degree scenery wherever a person finds
themselves. Numerous lakes also add to the picture postcard
look of this country, whose most famous citizen may have been the fictional Heidi. From banks to bucolic alpine meadows, Switzerland
has it all. Here’s a look at the best places to visit
in Switzerland: Number 10. Interlaken. Interlaken used to be known as a watch making
center, but today it’s more popular as a tourist resort. Tourists started coming to Interlaken in the
early 1800s to breathe in the mountain air and partake of spa treatments. Its popularity only grew from there. Offering spectacular views of three famous
Swiss mountains, the Eiger, the Jungfrau and the Monch, the city is also a popular base
camp for outdoor acitivites in the surrounding Bernese Oberland Alps. Hungry tourists may want to try raclette,
a classic Swiss dish made from cheese. Number 9. Lausanne. Athletes with Olympic aspirations may enjoy
a visit to Lausanne, a scenic city that is the second largest on Lake Geneva, as it is
home to the International Olympic Committee. Lausanne also is the gateway to some of the
world’s best ski slopes. A part of the Swiss Riviera, Lausanne has
been popular with writers over the centuries, including Lord Byron, the Shelleys and Ernest
Hemingway. Located in the French-speaking sector of Switzerland,
Lausanne boasts an impressive cathedral and wonderful outdoor markets. Number 8. Geneva. Geneva is a city where international influences
reign supreme. It is home to the International Red Cross
Committee and the European headquarters of the United Nations, as well as 20 other international
organizations. Environmental travelers will enjoy the fact
that Geneva is a “green” city, with 20 percent of its land devoted to parks, earning
it the nickname of “city of parks.” Top sights include the Cathedral of St. Pierre
where John Calvin gave famous sermons, and the United Nations headquarters. Geneva also is a good city to explore by bike
or rest weary feet by taking a boat ride on Lake Geneva. Number 7. Zurich. Switzerland’s largest city, Zurich, will
appeal to travelers with an interest in culture since it boasts more than 50 museums and over
100 art galleries. When visitors get tired of shopping for internationally
famous Swiss brand-name goods, they can take a boat ride on Lake Zurich or go hiking in
the nearby mountains. The city also boasts an impressive number
of clubs for travelers who enjoy going out at night. Not to be missed is the Swiss National Museum,
located in a fairytale castle, it is dedicated to Switzerland’s cultural history. Number 6. Zermatt. Zermatt is a small town that is famous for
skiing and mountaineering due to its proximity to the Matterhorn, one of Switzerland’s
highest mountains. Cable cars whisk skiers up surrounding mountains
in the winter and hikers in the summer. Zermatt is a good town for walking to various
sites, since gasoline-driven vehicles are not permitted; any vehicles within the city
limits must be battery-operated. Fortunately, for visitors, it takes 30 minutes
or less to walk between sites. The town is accessible via scenic train routes
that connect it with the outside world. Number 5. Jungfrau Region. The Jungfrau Region is one of the most scenic
places to visit in Switzerland, both in summer and winter. A century or two ago, this Alps region was
only visited by hard-core adventurers who wanted to ski or climb through the mountains. Now, thanks to an extensive network of railways
and well-maintained foot and bike paths, the area is accessible to many types of travelers. The Jungfrau Region consists of four picturesque
towns: Grindelwald, Murren, Lauterbrunnen, and Wengen, and three imposing mountains:
Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. Number 4. Lugano. Lugano has been nicknamed the “Monte Carlo
of Switzerland,” because of its growing popularity with celebrities. The city is located on Lake Lugano, in the
Italian speaking section of this alpine country. Lugano, which is blessed with warm summers,
dates back to the 9th century. The city is home to a large number of Swiss
heritage sites, including three cathedrals and several museums. Home to numerous financial institutions, the
city also hosts an annual classical music festival, the Lugano Festival, in the summer. Number 3. Lake Geneva. One of the largest lakes in Europe, Lake Geneva
lies on the course of the Rhone river on the frontier between France and Switzerland. Aside from the city Geneva most destinations
in the Lake Geneva region are in either the Swiss canton of Vaud or the French department
of Haute Savoie. The geography is varied, with the Jura mountains
in the north, a hilly plain in the center and in the southwest the Alps. The main attractions here are the elegant
cities and towns surrounding the lake, the opportunities for skiing and hiking in both
mountain ranges, and of course the lake itself. Number 2. Lucerne. Lucerne, located in the German-speaking section
of Switzerland, is a city that has it all: city life, a lake and mountains. Considered one of the world’s prettiest
cities, Lucerne is most famous for its 14th century Chapel Bridge and Water Tower, which
is said to be the most photographed monument in Switzerland. Another famous monument is the Dying Lion,
which was carved out of rock to honor Swiss mercenaries who died in France in 1792. Hungry visitors may want to try Luzerner Chügelipastete,
a local specialty made from puff pastry, veal and mushrooms doused in a cream sauce. Number 1. Bern. Bern is a picturesque medieval city with a
history that dates back to the 12th century, though it did not become a part of the Swiss
Confederacy until the 16th century. Its most famous attraction is an ancient clock
tower with moving puppets, that once served as the western gate of the city. Other popular sites in Bern include the Munster,
a Gothic cathedral that rises from the old town, and its town hall. The bear is the symbol of Bern, with several
being kept in an open-air pit. Shoppers will appreciate the old town that
boasts four miles of arcades, making it one of the longest covered shopping areas in Europe.

    If Glaciers, and uber tall mountains, float-your-boat please get thee to Switzerland’s Valais region. The Valais' Zermatt and Jungfrau are home to the tallest and most vast glacial regions in Switzerland. On a more serious note these glaciers are retreating with global warming. Sadly some of the lower glaciers are said to disappear within the next 20 years and the flow-on affect to local climate is impacting now. So please don't delay. Happy & safe travels!! Ciao

    We just spent the last weekend in Valais, way up in 2'600 metres. Went up by cable car. It's truly beautiful. But don't get caught too much. The living costs are astronomic. A lot of people struggle to make a living. The majority of the population earns just as much to pull through. Wht makes it so good is their political system. The people have the say, they vote on everything. They are reasonable, well educated people, it's the Swiss philosophy, their very being, that makes it work. The real Swiss people are caring and tidy, and their political system has the rich ones contributing considerably to the living of the poor ones. But it only works if everybody gives their best. Sadly, in recent years, a lot of scoungers came and it becomes less and less attractive to live here. The population is around 9 mio of which only around 6 mio are Swiss. Now do the maths. This won't work for much longer.

    In case you didn't understand the dish you should try in Lucerne, it's called: Chügelipastetli 🙂
    But I understand that's almost impossible to pronounce it as an English speaker 🙂

    Bern joined the Eidgenossenschaft (Swiss Confederacy) in 1353, not in the 16th century, as the 8th of 26 Kantons. However, Kantons didn’t exist yet in the day neither did the concept of nations. The Eidgenossenschaft was more like a loose conglomerate of city states. Medieval politics and structures were much different from today’s, but for all practical purposes it is safe to say Bern joined in 1353.
