The Alpine heart of Switzerland offers extremely impressive scenery of grand snowy peaks, lush grassy valleys and crystal clear lakes – all of which makes for great hiking in the summer and world-class sports in the winter.
The Jungfrau Region is the most accessible area and popular with tourists but other regions include Interlaken, Grindelwald, Zermatt and the Matterhorn, Zürich and The Rhine Falls.
“There is nothing quite like climbing to the top of the Alps and looking down upon the earth. Everything in the world suddenly makes sense.” - Anonymous
Switzerland and the Alps are inseparable from each other. In fact, the Alps occupy a good half of the country’s territory. They are majestic mountains that have won worldwide fame for their unique beauty, mystique, and genuine grandeur and relaxation. It is said that if the Alps were to disappear from the face of the Earth, Switzerland will immediately lose half its tourism attraction.
Switzerland is Europe’s mountain playground and is the promised land for lovers of hiking. The Swiss Alps are deservedly regarded as the birthplace of mountaineering and skiing. It boasts of some of the best ski resorts with the best slopes. The most popular ski resorts include Grindelwald, Engelberg, St. Moritz, Davos, Zermatt, Verbier, Saas-Fee, and Cran - Montana. The most famous peak of the Swiss Alps is Mount Matterhorn, which you probably know from the photographs.
Fun Fact: It is the silhouette of the Matterhorn depicted on the emblem of the world-famous chocolate “Toblerone”.
