If you are considering where to travel for your next vacation, look no further. Switzerland is the country you should visit and travel using our limousine service. It is one of the most beautiful countries in Europe.
Even though it is famous to be the perfect winter vacation spots its natural beauty shines very bright in summer too. There is something special about seeing snow-capped mountains shining in the distance on a sunny summer day.
You can enjoy the stroll on the fields covered with sentient alpine flowers. If you like to be next to the water when you travel, Switzerland is home to stunning turquoise lakes, which are said to be the cleanest in the world. You can swim, do some aquatic sports or just simply bask in the sunlight next to the lake. If you are a food lover remember that Switzerland is the country of fondue and amazing chocolate.
When you hear Switzerland you immediately think of the country of snowy mountains. But Switzerland is more than that, it has beautiful lakes and stunning scenery during all seasons of the year. But let’s talk about the mountains first.
If you have seen the chocolate brand Toblerone, you have seen the Matterhorn immortalized on its packaging. It is the most famous mountain in Europe and the crown jewel of the Alps. The most popular ski destination in Switzerland is Zermatt located at the foot of the mountain Matterhorn.
The lake Stellisee reflecting this glorious mountain on its surface creates a breathtaking view that should be on your bucket list. Therefore, to see the Matterhorn up close go to Zermatt.
The beautiful nature of Switzerland consists of more than the Alps. It is the country of stunning lakes, forests and beautiful natural scenery. To experience it all you should go to Lucerne or Interlaken and stay a couple of nights. From the little and a bit on the touristy side Lucerne you will be able to see the gorgeous Alps and a beautiful lake.
For a historical touch, visit its incredibly preserved medieval town. When in Lucerne, make sure not to miss Mt. Pilatus. The picturesque view of the city from this mountain will make you gasp and you can experience snow without the need to ski.
One of the best views of the Swiss Alps is available when you visit Interlaken. This resort town is located between mountains, forests, and lakes. You can go on a cruise on the beautiful lakes, or simply enjoy the view. There are many outdoor activities available for spot enthusiasts. One more interesting thing to do is to visit one of the villages above the Interlaken. If you want to get in touch with the Swiss feeling the villages Gimmelwald and Murren are the places to go and that can be made easy by using our chauffeur service.
Chocolate and cheese
Swiss chocolate is among the best in the world. You can never go wrong with choosing the previously mentioned brand Toblerone. Nestle and Lindt chocolate brands are world famous too and they come from Switzerland as well. Aside from these brands, you should try chocolate produced locally. Make sure not to leave the country before sampling all different tastes chocolatiers from Switzerland have to offer.
Don’t worry you won’t gain weight. You can get your cardio in from the skiing, outdoor activities, and all the sightseeing. The shops that you should stop by when in Geneva are Favarger, Auer Chocolatier, and Rhone Chocolatier. Your endorphins will go haywire when you taste what a country-famous Laderach has to offer. They have stores all over the country. Have you ever imagined going on a chocolate tour? You can do that while in Switzerland.
Let’s talk about cheese now. You cannot talk about Switzerland without mentioning the cheese. One of the most famous cheese dishes is most certainly fondue. It is the icon of Swiss cuisine. Cheese, most commonly Emmental or Gruyere, is melted in a big pot with dry white wine. Something is dipped in it. Most often cut up pieces of bread. Raclette is one more cheese dish worth mentioning. It got its name after the type of cheese used as one of its main ingredients.
Pieces of Raclette are most commonly placed on top of potatoes or meat and then grilled in mini grills. You are there to see the cheese melting, like the snow in the spring, releasing the mouthwatering aroma. For a cheese lover, this is as close as one can get to heaven.
Nestled in the heart of Europe, Switzerland is the melting pot of various cultures. French, German, Italian are national languages in this country. The Romansh is also a national language, but it doesn’t have a big number of speakers. Despite being in one small country, when you are in Switzerland, you feel like you are in three countries at once.
Logically, you can meet with Italian speakers in the area close to Switzerland’s southern neighbor. Here you will experience culture, food, and architecture that is similar to the one in Italy.
If you are wondering where do French speakers mostly live, you will encounter them in Romandy area. In cities like Geneva, Jura and Vaud. If you are in need of a glass of fine wine make sure not to miss the vineyards of Lavaux located around Lake Geneva. Wine and jazz go together like peanut butter and jelly and this great combination can be whipped together in the amazing Montreux. A city nestled in the quiet bay of the Lake Geneva.
Bern, Fribourg, and Valais are places where mostly German speakers live. As a country’s capital, Bern has a lot to offer. Do you like Neo-Renaissance or medieval architecture? If you do, go to Bern. Make sure not to miss Zytgloge (Clock Tower), Parliament Building and bear park when you are there. The canton of Valais is where Matterhorn is located. Need I say more?
All in all, Switzerland is a true masterpiece of mother nature. Starting from the glorious Alps to beautiful lakes, and meadows, it stands as a true testament of the beauty of our planet. In the land of chocolate, cheese, and wine you will most certainly have a fairytale vacation. You can sit down and relax taking in beautiful scenery or go and explore. It is up to you.
