A fascinating mix of contemporary and historical styles, Switzerland is most well known for its peaceful nature, beautiful mountains and lakes, and these days, a bit of urban chic. The capital, Bern, is not just a modern hub of shopping and tourism. It also hides a medieval old town, and galleries full of highly acclaimed modern art. Zurich is the destination of choice for those who enjoy a party atmosphere. All the rooftop bars and clubs you could want, packed into a condensed location, make the largest city in Switzerland a haven for people who love the hustle and bustle of a modern town, but still like to escape to the wilderness. Of course, you can’t think of Switzerland without mentioning the Alps. People have been coming to the Alps since the 1930s, whether that’s to muck in with the Val d'Hérens cattle, or indulge in the luxurious resort of Verbier.
