Things to do in Switzerland

Lake Lucerne
With over half of its landmass covered in mountains, Switzerland is best known for Alpine adventures, but it also boasts the lakefront Montreux Riviera, valleys full of half-timbered farmhouses and grazing cows, richly historical cities and grand 19th-century resort towns. Our specialists have picked out the best things to do in Switzerland, and can help you choose experiences based on your interests.

You can take a gondola to the top of a mountain and walk on the world’s longest glacier, or visit a traditional cheesemaking factory and see how they get the holes into Swiss cheese. Taste truffles at an exclusive chocolatier, then get on a cogwheel train that will take you to the top of a snowy massif. Whether you’d rather ride a luxury train through mountain tunnels in the Alps or take a boat to a grotto to learn how to make risotto, we can help you find the best ways to explore Switzerland.
