Switzerland travel guides

Switzerland brings to mind the sky-piercing peaks of the Alps, fireside fondue in a snug chalet, glitzy mountain resorts, and glassy glacial lakes. This is a country that’s well known for high-altitude hiking, luxe hotels, and robust dairy and chocolate industries. But it’s also home to a compact wine region, lakeside grotto restaurants, and one of Europe’s most prestigious jazz festivals.

Our travel guides offer a glimpse into the country’s popular sights, as well as some unexpected delights. In them, you’ll discover the best ways to experience what Switzerland has to offer, from guided hikes in the Alps to food tours that show you how nearby countries have influenced the nation’s complex cuisine. We hope they can provide you with the inspiration you need to start planning your tailor-made trip.
