The mountainous central European country of Switzerland is a fantastic holiday destination, boasting beautiful lakes, great winter sports, vibrant nightlife and some of the highest (and biggest!) waterfalls in Europe, including the renowned Rhine Falls (the largest plain waterfall on the continent)…
This snow-capped and land-locked country is famous for its majestic mountains with the impressive Alps in the south and south-east; the highest and most extensive range system that lies entirely Europe, and the Jura mountains in the north-west. And with many of the country’s peaks accessible by cable car or cog railway, you’re promised excellent panoramic views of what Switzerland has to offer!
The Matterhorn is an infamous natural wonder here; an impressive mountain of the Alps, straddling the main watershed and border between Switzerland and Italy. At 4,478 metres, it’s one of Europe’s highest peaks, widely regarded as the proud symbol of Switzerland. The mountain has become an iconic emblem of the Swiss Alps and of the Alps in general, offering fantastic hiking and climbing opportunities on your Swiss getaway.

Inevitably, Switzerland is also notorious for its world-class ski resorts and hiking trails, boasting over 50 4,000 metre peaks as well as Europe’s biggest glacier, the Aletsch, which is around 23 kilometres long. The village of Grindelwald, in Switzerland’s Bernese Alps, offers stunning views from the slopes and with lots of long intermediate runs, it’s a popular destination for experienced skiers in particular. If you can’t wait to hit slopes – for the first or umpteenth time – view our Switzerland chalets and apartments for the ultimate Switzerland holiday inspiration!
The country’s fantastic capital city of Bern, set in the heart of Switzerland (and centre of Europe), is home to a plethora of attractions, from museums to palaces. The Bärengraben, also known as the Bear Pit, is a tourist-magnet here, housing bears across 6,000 square metres. Visitors can go on a tour of the original bear pit from the 16th century as well as the new attraction. The cosmopolitan capital’s 12th century Old Town is an urban gem and UNECO World Heritage Site, offering one of the longest covered shopping promenades in Europe.
Switzerland’s charming city of Zürich is another great destination, located at the north end of Lake Zürich in northern Switzerland. The city offers a fantastic urban experience intertwined with the impressive Lake Zürich, measuring at 25 miles long and two miles wide. A variety of impressive church buildings, green spaces and modern attractions, including the popular Zoological Museum, can be enjoyed here.
Or why not head to the town of Thun on your Switzerland holiday, located in the Bernese Oberland region. At the lower end of Lake Thun, a beautiful alpine lake surrounded by spectacular mountain scenery, the historic old town is a popular area, home to a great castle and museum.
Zurmatt is a popular mountain resort in magical Switzerland, located in the Valais canton. Known for its spectacular skiing, hiking and climbing, the picturesque resort lies at the foot of the impressive Matterhorn. Or explore the Swiss city of Sion, in the south-western canton of Valais! Admire the beautiful hilltop Castle Tourbillon, discover the historic monuments in the Old Town and sample or make wine in the medieval centre of the French speaking destination on your Switzerland holiday…
Choose cosmopolitan Geneva at the southern tip of Lake Geneva for your Switzerland holiday! The city, on the French border, offers an array of attractions, from its Cathédrale St. Pierre to its infamous boutique chocolate producers. Make sure to visit the fantastic Musée d’Art et d’Histoire on your Geneva holiday, the largest museum in the city, as well as the idyllic Lac Léman; a crescent-shaped lake overlooking the Alps.
Skiiers can head to Verbier for an unforgettable break too; a charming, alpine village in Valais with brilliant views of the Mont-Blanc and the Combins massif. Some areas of Verbier are topped with snow all year, while experienced skiiers can revel in the resort’s challenging pistes! See the Travelopo portfolio of luxury chalets and apartments in and around Verbier for an incredible holiday year-round.
