5 Places You Must Visit Once You Arrive In Switzerland

Guest post by

Switzerland is more than chocolate and cheese. Although those are compelling reasons to travel to this delightful destination, there is a lot more to explore once you arrive. 

Regardless of if you travel by private jet to Switzerland or if you choose a more budget friendly alternative, there are a few places you should make sure to put on your travel itinerary. 

In order to make sure there is something for everyone to choose from, the list will contain everything from breathtakingly beautiful nature to busy city life. Let's go!

 

Means of transportation 

There are several ways of travelling to Switzerland and indeed, renting a private jet is one of them. There are quite a few options when it comes to airlines and this includes if you choose to travel commercially as well. You should choose to travel in whatever way suits your timeline, preferences and budget. 

Make sure to travel comfortably in order to arrive well-rested. You have a lot of exploring to do and one of the best ways of guaranteeing a great start to your journey is by travelling in a way that will allow you to "hit the ground running" so to speak. 

 

5 places not to be missed

1. Matterhorn, Zermatt - no visit to Switzerland would be complete without a visit to one of the most iconic sites in the country. The Matterhorn, by some claimed to be the most photographed mountain in the world, is a humbling site that will leave you in awe of nature. 

2. Lake Geneva - surrounded by two of Switzerland’s most beautiful and vibrant cities, Geneva and Lausanne, Lake Geneva is a wonderfully serene destination. There are vineyards and castles as well as amazing hiking trails. 

3. Zurich - the cultural hub of Switzerland offers more than meets the eye and if you are interested in a multifaceted experience, Zurich is the place to go. Enjoy a buzzing nightlife as well as a closer look into the financial centre of town. 

4. Bern - the fact that the city of Bern is the official capital of Switzerland seem to have escaped many, instead the focus is usually on much more well-known places like Geneva. It's a shame though, as this medieval gem hides a multitude of treasures such as the fact that the Old Town in Bern is a UNESCO's World Heritage site. 

5. The Rhine Falls - ending the list is another natural wonder. The Rhine Falls is the largest waterfall in Europe and attracts a multitude of tourist each year, for good reason. It is a spectacular sight that should not be missed and if you happen to stop by during the Swiss National Day, you will be treated to a fireworks display. 

 

Small but mighty

Switzerland is a wonderful destination well worth your while. Travel there in style and enjoy all that this small but mighty country has to offer. Pack for all occasions and make sure you are prepared for some of the most amazing travel experiences you will ever have.
