There's no need to say that Switzerland, located in the heart of the Alps, is one of the most spectacular countries on the planet. You already know that. But as beautiful as the Alps are, Switzerland is much more than just mountains, no matter how majestic they may be.
Switzerland is a small European country with a distinctive personality - politically neutral, environmentally aware and humanitarian, the home of the International Red Cross and many branches of the United Nations. Landlocked by France, Germany, Liechtenstein, Austria and Italy, Switzerland is influenced by its neighbours and even has four official languages. But Switzerland's strong sense of self, its fierce independence, transcends those external influences. Swiss watches and clocks are fabled for their accuracy, as are the timetables of its railroads. Multi-function Swiss pocketknives are carried by people all around the world, and Swiss chocolates are savoured by millions. Yes, Switzerland is mountains, but it's much more – wildflower meadows, clear Alpine lakes, and cities and villages full of history.

Holidays to Switzerland often focus on Switzerland's snow-capped Alps, where world-class ski resorts operate from November to April. Mountain climbing is another popular pursuit, but in case the Matterhorn is too much for you, Switzerland offers plenty of other things to do. Bern, Switzerland's capital has a charming, medieval quality, evidenced by its Gothic cathedral, a 13th-century clock tower, cobblestone streets and designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Bern is also the home of famed Swiss chocolates and an extensive Paul Klee collection at the city's Museum of Fine Arts. Don’t miss a thing! Get the most for your money- Direct Flights offers cheap holiday packages to fit any budget.
Cosmopolitan Geneva, headquarters of many international organisations, lies on the shores of beautiful Lake Geneva (Lac Léman), Europe's largest Alpine lake. In Geneva, sumptuous hotels, cuisine by some of the world's top chefs and fine watches all compete with sailing on the lake and skiing in the nearby Alps. The 11th-century Chateau de Chillon in Montreux, also on Lake Geneva, features rooms furnished with frescoes and weaponry, along with towers, dungeons and courtyards.

Basel's fountains combine with Medieval, Gothic and Renaissance buildings to give the city a special type of splendour. What art-lover wouldn't want to visit Basel's Museum of Fine Arts to view its many works by Picasso? Zurich is the country's largest city, prosperous and world-renowned for its banks, museums and art galleries. Interlaken, situated between two lakes and close to three famous Alpine peaks - the Jungfrau, the Eiger and the Mönch - is an incredible spot that no one should miss. Lucerne, a collage of Medieval and Renaissance buildings and bridges, is often considered to be the essence of Switzerland. It sits on the edge of Lake Lucerne, surrounded by towering Mount Pilatus and Mt. Rigi. A cable-car that rises to the top of Mount Pilatus provides one of the most awe-inspiring vistas imaginable - south to Italy and north to Bavaria, across the entirety of the Swiss Alps.
