Switzerland is the epitome of classic beauty, culture and adventure, all rolled into a breathtaking background of glistening peaks and shimmering lakes. Let’s take a look at some of the most famous sights that this incredible destination has to offer.

Lucerne

As pretty as a picture postcard, Lucerne is fairytale land full of mighty mountains, glittering lakes, and alpine villages. Wide stretches of meadow are replete with edelweiss and the soft charming tinkle of cowbells. Besides the scenic beauty, its other popular attractions include:

• The impressive Lion Monument, a tribute to the brave Swiss soldiers who died fighting valiantly in the French Revolution.

• Kappellbrucke, a covered, wooden chapel bridge, perfect for a stroll to stretch your legs.

• The Jesuit Church, known for its resplendent adornment.

Interlaken

With its adventurous environment of skydiving, hang gliding, skiing and more, Interlaken is one of the most exciting destinations to visit and is a hub for backpackers throughout the year. Besides its sports activities, it is famous for Jungfrau, the third highest mountain of the Bernese Alps.

JungFrau

Jungfrau, the ‘Top of Europe’, is a breathtakingly beautiful world of sparkling glaciers and glittering ice. Attractions of this magnificent frost and snow world include:

• A charming, cogwheel train ride through the mountains which takes you to Europe’s highest railway station.

• The magnificent Aletsch Glacier which is a stream of ice—the longest in the Alps.

• The majestic Ice Palace.

• The Sphinx Observation Terrace, from where you can get a panoramic view of the Alpine region.

Mount Pilatus

Mount Pilatus is one of the most legendary and alluring mountains near Lucerne. Activities in this resplendent mountain region include:

• A fantastic aerial gondola or cable car ride to get to the peak of Mount Pilatus.

• An exquisite bird’s-eye view of surrounding mountains and lakes from the top.

• The Dragon’s Path, which is a short hike down to the summit.

• A cog-wheel railway ride from the summit to Alpnachstad.

Rhine Falls

Formed in the last ice age, the Rhine Falls are Europe’s most massive plain waterfalls. Located in Schaffhausen in northern Switzerland, this is the ideal spot for a fantastic photo session.

Zurich

The largest city in Switzerland, Zurich is as famous for its hectic pace as it is for its magnificent churches, cultural and historical museums, fantastic parks and gardens and breathtaking architecture. Its most famous sights are:

• Bahnhofstrasse, the most expensive shopping street.

• St. Peter’s Church, which has the world’s biggest church clock-face.

• Grossmünster, a radiant Romanesque Cathedral.

Besides these popular places, Switzerland has many more beautiful sights to offer. To get the most out of your Europe tour, visit your travel operator and find out about the different holiday packages available. Then plan your holiday to this charming and delightful destination called Switzerland.
