Switzerland

A Gorgeous Alpine Paradise

Despite its location at the very heart of Europe, this nation’s historic policy of neutrality and mountainous terrain have kept it largely insulated from the continent’s tumultuous history. Comprised of twenty-six confederative cantons and three official languages (Romansh has a slightly lesser status), Switzerland’s culture and politics lean towards decentralized internationalism. It is a clean, safe place to visit, and its borders contain a geographic diversity that will fill the itinerary of any nature lover. The country’s south is where adventure travelers enjoy some of the world’s most dramatic scenery. From Interlaken, a popular option is to head towards the Jungfraujoch, Europe’s highest train station, while taking in the Alpine peaks, glaciers, and waterfalls along the way. Beautiful Lake Geneva sits squarely on the country’s border with France. Further north is Switzerland’s historic center, the “Middle Land”; the city center of Berne, the federal capital, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

  • Sehr unsorgfältige, oft auch inhaltlich falsche Berichte. Wenn dann noch der Name der Jungfraujoch als Jungfernjoch umbenannt ist dies der "Tropfen der das Fass zum Überlaufen" bringt.
