Journey to Switzerland

Vast views and welcoming hosts

With Lake Lucerne and the Alps among its numerous natural wonders, Switzerland will always be in the running for ‘Most Beautiful Place on Earth’. Stirring scenery aside, it’s also home to everything from yodelling to cuckoo clocks, so you’re sure to enjoy a heady mix of beauty, eccentricity, and some of the best chocolate in the world.

Lake Lucerne

Offering nostalgia and natural splendour in equal measure, Lucerne tugs at the heartstrings.  Get to know its sensitive side with a visit to the poignant Lion Monument, carved into a cliff face. Stroll through the well-preserved Alstadt (Old Town), filled with fountain squares and timber-framed buildings. The city’s best known for its lake, so be sure to take a cruise along its cobalt waters. Or, ascend aboard a cog train and get up close and personal with Lucerne’s mythic mountains.


Swiss Alps

The great outdoors are at their greatest in the Swiss Alps, offering a mix of dizzying scenery and high-altitude adventure. Expect everything from spectacular valleys to glistening lakes and snowy peaks, sure to delight skiers and sightseers alike. 

Geneva

Cool, modern, and cosmopolitan, Geneva is a capital city in all but name. In reality, it’s Switzerland’s third city but undoubtedly, it’s most international. Take a tour around the grand and historic United Nations building. Marvel at the Jet d’Eau, a 140-metre high water fountain, visible throughout the city. In your free time, make your way to the edges of Lake Léman, one of the largest in Western Europe. Or, delve deeper into Switzerland’s watchmaking tradition at the Patek Phillipe Museum.
