What comes to your mind when you think about Switzerland? Mountains, chocolate, banks, lakes? If you have never explored this country before, here is a list of places to visit during your trip to this central European country.

Skiing and other winter sports

If you decide to visit the country in winter, then you must take some time off to explore the Alps. After all, Switzerland is the prime destination for a skiing holiday. Despite its rather small size, the country many ski resorts. Check out the Laax ski resort, where you will be able to ride in a cable-car designed by Porsche.

Visit the lakes

Switzerland is a country known for its natural landscapes: its snow-capped mountain ranges, its rolling green hills and its lakes. The most famous lake is Lac Leman, Lake Geneve. There are many other lakes worth exploring, from Lake Constance to Lake Lucerne. In summer you will be able to bathe and rent boats, and even in winter the lakes make a nice place where to enjoy a walk.

Try the local food

Have you ever heard of a raclette? This delicious and hearty dish is one of the many delicacies the country is famous for. A raclette is made by taking a large chunk of local cheese, heating it up until it melts and letting the cheese drip onto potatoes, pickles and onions. The more traditional älpenmagronen is a dish made from pasta, onion, cream and potatoes… all of them covered in cheese. And for dessert, do not miss the country’s famous varieties of chocolate.

Enjoy the view

Climb up to Säntis if you want to enjoy a singular view: from this mountain you will be able to see Germany, Austria, France, Italy, Liechtenstein and Switzerland. After that, head to one of the many Alpine villages hidden in the valleys- the region of Appenzellerland is filled with wooden and stone houses atop green hills. And if you are a fan of Heidi, do not forget to visit the town of Maienfeld, in the canton of Garübunden.

    There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment?s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
