The Swiss Alps are an extraordinarily picturesque and charming locale that is very attractive for Europeans and international tourists seeking a skiing holiday or just looking for somewhere peaceful and lovely to spend a holiday. Switzerland is known not only for the scenic beauty of its location in the Central Alps, but also for such pleasures as fine chocolates, mouthwatering cheeses, historic castles and even adventure sports. Whether you choose a catered ski chalet or you prefer a more private, cozy farmhouse rental for your vacation, your time in the Swiss Alps will be most memorable.
Some of the Best Attractions of the Swiss Alps
Of course, the world renowned Matterhorn must be listed first when discussing Alpine attractions. While not necessarily the highest mountain in Switzerland, the Matterhorn is still the most popular for climbers who wish to reach its summit. The Swiss National Park covers half of Switzerland and includes some of the most incredible scenic views on earth, and while you can hike and explore the park in daylight, camping is not permitted.
Cultural advocates will enjoy touring Chillon Castle near Montreaux on Lake Geneva, and exploring its 12th century dungeons and courtyards. The 2000 year old town of Zurich provides many historical landmarks in addition to trendy cafes and modern entertainments. But for outdoor adventures, Interlaken is the city for bungee jumping, river rafting, and paragliding in addition to hiking and skiing.
