Switzerland is known for its towering Alpine peaks reflected in sparkling lakes, breathtaking vistas, and medieval-era Old Towns brimming with character. Summer promises to roll grassy meadows dotted with wildflowers and the gentle tinkling of grazing cowbells. Winter is the season of snowy landscapes, winter sports, and bustling ski resorts.
Italy, France, and Germany border Switzerland, and the language, food, and culture vary depending on where you are. One constant is the Swiss emphasis on efficiency in areas other than their renowned watchmaking. On the other hand, the Vibes group curates and executes itineraries with great skill and attention to detail.
Switzerland is small and easy to navigate. On the same day, you could be dipping into a pot of hot fondue view of the Matterhorn from Zermatt, a car-free resort town that admires the thunderous Rhine Falls on the German border. A scenic train rides the Swiss Alps, over mountain passes and viaducts, through snowy landscapes and villages dotted with timber chalets is one of the highlights of a Switzerland holiday. Another highlight is the incredible variety of chocolates, cheeses, and wines produced in this country.
Zurich, Switzerland’s most famous city, is a happy mix of historic buildings with spires stretching skyward, a hilltop lookout tower at Uetliberg, and boutique chocolatiers. A walking tour of Bern is an excellent way to get to know the city. Its medieval centre is UNESCO-listed, with cobblestone streets, Renaissance fountains, and ornate arcades. With its magical Chapel Bridge and baroque Jesuit Church, Lucerne is another lovely and entirely walkable city. Wander the old town of Geneva and go trout fishing or hike/bike trails through the vineyards of Lavaux on Lake Geneva’s northern shores.
Cities in Switzerland are well-known for their museums, architecture, and art galleries, but the main draw-the countryside and mountains-is never far away. Take a gondola to the tops of the Alps, such as Jungfraujoch, Titlis, Schilthorn, or Pilatus, for breathtaking views of the Alps, glaciers, lakes, and forests. Wherever your interests lie, whether it’s outdoor activities in Interlaken, a jazz festival in Montreux, or a tour of a cheesemaking facility in Gruyeres, Vibes Group UK experts are ready to take you there.
