With picture perfect Alpine landscapes and natural water lakes, landlocked Switzerland certainly makes up for what it lacks in coastline. A snow sports fan’s heaven in winter and a hiker or cyclist’s paradise in summer, holiday apartments in Switzerland are a great way to make the most of your stay. Switzerland’s cities are also renowned for their commitment to a good life with the reliably warm summers in Lugano, Lake Geneva delivering perfect waterfront views, Zurich’s high class restaurants and bars keeping its millionaires happy.
Holiday in Switzerland
One of the best European destinations for mountain and lake holidays, there are many ways to experience Switzerland. From luxurious city breaks in Lugano or Geneva to staying in one of the many traditional alpine chalets in Switzerland, you can experience the beauty, landscape and culture of this varied country. Enjoy the well known Swiss lakes like Constance, Lucerne and Zurich, where you can even go scuba diving or be part of the minority to enjoy the stunning smaller lakes like Thun or Biel, which have “grass beaches”. If this sounds far too relaxing, you can get the adrenaline flowing in the winter by finding a cosy cabin in the Swiss Alps where you can snowboard or ski all day. Among the best ski resorts in Switzerland are Laax, Engelberg and Saas Fee, all of which are certain to have snow and cater for skiers of all abilities. In summer the same mountains transform into picturesque summer playgrounds for hiking, mountain biking, trekking or just admiring the views. With three official languages, Switzerland’s architecture, culture and cuisine changes from the Italian speaking and tasting Canton of Ticino with its formaggini (small balls of goats cheese), the Swiss German potato dish rösti and of course the Swiss French traditions of fondue and raclette, which are popular in ski resorts and beyond.
