Switzerland Tours & Holidays

The little Alpine nation of Switzerland is famous for its cheese, chocolate and cuckoo clocks but there is so much more to discover in this beautiful land of majestic mountains and lush green valleys. It is, of course, a major winter sports destination, and resorts such Davos - Europe’s highest town - and St Moritz welcome legions of skiers and snowboarders to their slopes, while in summer, they transform into bases for some of the country’s most scenic hiking trails. The charming capital city, Berne, is a delight to explore at any time of year. The medieval Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is particularly well-preserved, with its Renaissance fountains, its grand cathedral – the biggest in Switzerland – and impressive array of museums and galleries.

Also worth a look is the riverside Bear Park, a modern enclosure housing a number of brown bears, the city’s heraldic emblem. Sitting right on the border with both France and Germany, on the banks of the River Rhine, Basel is another architectural and cultural treasure-house, home to some 38 museums and an appealing city-centre Botanic Garden. And to enjoy the spectacular natural beauty of this country at its best, it’s hard to beat a journey on the celebrated Glacier Express as it winds its way through the glorious Swiss Alps.
