Switzerland is one of the most seductive destinations of the world. Allured by its attractions like snowcapped mountains, picturesque valleys, scenic lakes, rich culture and heritage, historical monuments, diverse cuisine, summer and winter adventure sports and shopping facilities, many tourists and visitors throng to the place.

Located in Western Europe, Switzerland is an essentially landlocked country divided between the Alps Mountain range, Central Plateau and Jura Mountains. Although Alps form the greater part of territory, population is mainly concentrated on Plateau where the large cities are situated. Its culture and heritage is hugely influenced by the three neighboring civilizations of Germany, France and Italy.

The main destinations of Switzerland trip are Zurich, Lucerne, Zermatt, Interlaken, Geneva, Basel, Davos, Saint Moritz, Lausanne, Grindelwald, Bern, Saas-Fee, Montreux and Arosa.

Endowed with a magnificent view of snow capped Alps Mountains on the horizon, Zurich has a multitude of experiences to offer. Over fifty museums, more than hundred art galleries, international fashion labels and indigenous Zurich designs on exhibit, the most flamboyant and lively night life in Switzerland – the attractions Zurich offer are of a unique mix. Recreational activities can range from a visit to the riverside and lakeside bathing areas in the very heart of city to a spectacular hike on the Uetliberg Mountain.

Lucerne is situated on Lake Lucerne, embedded within an impressive mountainous panorama. The main attractions are Chapel Bridge, Culture and Convention Center of Lucerne, Swiss museum of transport, cruises through Lake Lucerne and excursion to mountains Rigi, Pilatus and Stanserhorn which are made accessible through cable ways.

Switzerland Travel Packages will also include Zermatt which lies at the foot of Mount Matterhorn, perhaps the most famous mountain in the world. This car free zone has preserved its original character and holds unlimited possibilities of excursions. The important attractions are Gornergrat – a cog railway that winds up the mountain offering a wonderful panoramic view, Matterhorn Museum, Glacier Paradise or Klein Matterhorn – the highest place in Europe to be able to reached by a cableway, with a viewing platform and the highest glacier palace in the world.

Interlaken lies on an alluvial plain between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz. This vacation destination is marked by three mighty mountains, Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau. It is also the starting point of numerous adventure activities.

Geneva is embedded between Alpine peaks and hilly terrain of Jura Mountains. It lies in the bay where river Rhone leaves Lake Geneva. The important attractions are Jet d’eau, Saint Pierre Cathedral, Palace of the United Nations, International Museum of the Red Cross and cruises on Lake Geneva.

Basel is located on both sides of river Rhine, in the three country corner of Switzerland, Germany and France. Basel is the converging point of diverse cultures, multifaceted history and modern art and architecture. Cruises on river Rhine can also be had in Basel.

Davos is the largest resort in the Alps for mountain holidays, sports and conferences. It is the highest town in Alps and a high altitude health resort with a long tradition.

Not many cities have successfully kept its historic features as Bern, the capital of Switzerland. The old town of Bern is a UNESCO Cultural World Heritage Site. A art gallery with works of artist Paul Klee is present in Bern.

Honeymoon in Switzerland will be a rich one with its cities, lakes, mountains, resorts and options for adventure activities.
