It's common knowledge that Switzerland is a beautiful country. No matter where you look, you have these picture-perfect post card views. But there is a lot more to this country than just its natural beauty- like romance, food, passion, adventure etc. It's a perfect place for a family vacation. Due to its natural beauty, this country is fondly called as the 'heaven on earth'. Switzerland is home to the panoramic Alps and is lovingly referred to as the land of Alps.

This country is an ideal vacation spot for tourists who are on a hunt for a memorable trip and there are oodles of reasons for that. Furthermore, a trip to Switzerland can be Godsend. There are a multitude of things that you can see in this country- some of them are the shimmering glaciers, the dazzling beautiful lakes, snow-capped mountains, rolling hills, beautiful landscapes, verdant meadows, gorgeous villages, and the captivating cities. In short, the view of all these places can be mesmerizing for any tourist. You can taste some delicious chocolates or have some tasty wine in the chilling climate conditions of Switzerland. The rich heritage, intellectual culture, and lingual diversity add to the preciousness of this wonderful country. Some of the must-see places in Switzerland are Geneva, Lucerne, Zurich, Zermatt, and Interlaken.

The city Basel, which is at the northern part of the country, is at the interconnection between the countries of Switzerland, France, and Germany. This place was once very famous for its production of fabric-dye in the middle ages. Basel has presently serves as a base for pharmaceuticals for a slew of international companies. Some of the most important attractions of Basel includes the Munster (which sports a red sanssotne cathedral carved out in the 9th century), the University of Switzerland (which is the oldest university in the country), and Drei Konige (or Three Kings on the Rhine) which is the oldest hotel in Europe. This place also possesses some of the finest museums in the world. Some of them are the Kunstmuseum (features some of the best arts), Antikenmuseum (Roman and Greek carvings), Jean Tinguely (Swiss artifacts), and the Fondation Beyeler which incorporates the works of some of the well-known artists like Monet, Van Gogh, and Cezanne. If time is not a constraint, you can have a delicious dinner cruise near the Rhine. If you land up in any of the festival seasons, you can avail any of a local morning train and catch glimpses of the beautiful happenings of this wonderful city.

Bern

Bern was the ancient capital of Switzerland. Unfortunately, the picturesque town was damaged by fire in the early 15th century. However, it still has some marvelous historic architecture that dates back to the 15th century. Not surprisingly, United Nations has declared this place as a 'World Heritage Site'. The ancient city is marked by old stone houses enriched by a plethora of geraniums on the balconies which aptly compliment the beautiful river of Aare.

Brig

When you are in Brig, make sure that you catch glimpses of the Rhone Glacier which lies nearby. You can also reach Italy through a major tunnel that runs through the Alps.

Heidi Area

This place boasts typical houses called Chalets located in the mountainous regions of Heidi. Some of the most important attractions in this place are the Alphorn blowers, glaciers, stunning hilly pastures, waterfalls, and the elaborated wooden carvings on the houses and bridges.

Apart from the places mentioned above, there are a lot more to see. You can avail any of the cheap travel packages and explore the enamoring beauty of the place rightly called as the 'heaven on earth'.

As a suggestion, I'd like to add, while you are out for a vacation, it's better to install a dependable security system at home such as the ADT Home Security as it will ensure protection for your house and all the valuable possessions.
