visit switzerland to see amazing mountain views

Visit Switzerland

Switzerland is synonymous with majestic mountains, placid lake cruises and rustic villages dotted along picturesque valleys; yet offers unimaginable cityscapes with old towns dating back to medieval times. With its small size and excellent infrastructure, a wide range of experiences and variety in destinations is put within easy reach.

At the heart of Europe, the country is a remarkable single destination, but is often included in European itineraries. Anyone deciding to visit Switzerland is in for a real treat. Discover our recommended trips or get in touch with us to plan your very personalized one.


The City. The Lake. The Mountains. A region rich with unique mountain views and striking lake landscapes is as fascinating as the city of Lucerne itself. In a majestic setting in the heart of Central Switzerland, Mount Rigi is the home of Europe’s first mountain railway. On top of Mount Titlis, visitors enjoy views all the way into the Italian Alps and Germany. The ‘Golden Round Trip’ combines the world’s steepest cog railway, a cable car and a boat trip in one adventure.


From the world- famous mountain trio of Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau, to Lake Oeschinen at the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage area Jungfrau-Aletsch-Bietschhorn — you’ll find everything your heart desires! Those looking for some buzz will find their kind of adventure in Interlaken, Europe’s leading destination for outdoor and adventure sports. Sophisticated bons vivants should stop in Gstaad to enjoy specialty cheeses surrounded by the mountain landscape.


Home to the most impressive Swiss nature experiences, Valais is where you’ll find the world-famous Matterhorn and the great Aletsch Glacier — with its 10 billion tons of ice, it is the largest in the Alps. Below the region’s peaks sit thermal pools, golf courses, charming villages and Swiss castles. While in the region, don’t forget to treat yourself to a dish of Raclette.


Discover the interplay between pristine wilderness and top notch, modern tourism infrastructure —from tranquil mountain villages to the sleek and sophisticated hotels in St. Moritz. The region is home to the Swiss National Park and over 40 ski resorts, featuring activities for every level of experience. Thaws reveal more than 210 waterfalls spread across wooded settings. No matter the season, this region aims to impress.
