Switzerland is a country of still lakes, rolling hills and snowy mountainous landscapes. Located at the crossroads between Eastern and Western Europe, it also separates Germany from Italy, serving as the gateway to Southern Europe from the northern half of the continent. With speakers of French, German, Italian and Romansh, Switzerland is all the best of four cultures jammed into one. The town of Basel, on the German border, is the ‘pocket-sized metropolis’ of Switzerland, complete with stylish architecture, compelling museums and a rich historical city centre. The chic city of Geneva, on the other hand, is almost entirely surrounded by French land. Nestled in cozily around the shores of Lake Geneva, or Lac Léman, the city is elegant and luxurious, as well as vibrant and energetic. Back in the German speaking part of the country you’ll find Zürich. Here you can head down Bahnhofstrasse, a street famous for its shopping destinations, enjoy the burgeoning gastronomical scene or take a trip to the cascading Rhine Falls. Then take a break from the city streets and make your way up to Klosters, a snowy haven for lovers of nature and winter sports. Try out your skiing, go tobogganing or wind down at the Engadin Baths in the town of Scuol.
