As the home of fantastic natural scenery, Switzerland is becoming more and more popular every year. The lakes, mountains and waterfalls across the country provide perfect settings in which to relax, as well as fantastic areas to hike, bike and explore in many other active ways. Whether you choose a major city like Zurich or Bern or one of the more scenic destinations around Lake Lucerne or Lake Geneva, you will easily see why travellers quickly fall in love with Switzerland.
The Swiss Alps are one of the best regions in Europe for an active holiday. From skiing in resorts like St Moritz and Verbier to visiting Europe’s highest train station on board the Jungfrau Railway, there is no end of exciting activities to look forward to. And with winter and summer pursuits available throughout the country, Switzerland really is a year-round destination.
Another great reason to visit and a helpful bonus for anyone going on holiday to Switzerland is that so many of the towns and cities offer free public transport for the duration of your stay. Book a hotel in Geneva, Bern, Lausanne or many other Swiss destinations and you will receive a free transport card when you check in. This means you can get around using the trains, trams, buses and even water taxis in some regions, helping you to make the most of your trip. And with the Swiss transport network running like clockwork, you’ll spend less time getting from place to place and more time enjoying the sights.
