Officially the Swiss Confederation, Switzerland is made up of 26 cantons. It is beautiful, rich, clean and well-ordered, known for its banking, watch making and chocolate. One of the most famously neutral countries in the world, Switzerland has not been involved in a war since 1815. It also has a tradition of humanitarianism. Not only is it the birthplace of the Geneva Convention and the Red Cross, but several international bodies have offices here.

Landlocked by Germany, Austria and Liechtenstein, Italy and France, there are four national languages (German, French, Italian and Romansch). English is a fifth, unofficial, language.

Approximately two-thirds of Switzerland (centre and east) is in the German-speaking area. French is spoken in the west (in Lausanne and Geneva). Italian and Romansch are spoken in the south. Switzerland is no mere patchwork however. While its German, French and Italian heritages inform its culture and cuisine, the country is united in its desire to remain one country. Its motto is after all “One for all, all for one”.

The world-class ski resorts and its business cities mean that there is plenty of competition among airlines to offer cheap flights to Switzerland.

Switzerland climate

In the summer months, average temperatures are in the 18-28 degree range. January and February see plummeting temperatures – 7 to -2. Spring and autumn are mild – 8 to 15 degrees. Naturally, the higher you go, the colder it gets.

Getting around Switzerland

Public transport is excellent. Comprehensive and punctual, reasonably priced and clean, getting around by public transport is a tourist’s dream. Swiss Federal Railways operates rail services throughout Switzerland. Two of the largest Alpine lines are BLS, which runs the Bern–Lötschberg–Simplon route between the Swiss capital and Italy; and RhB, the Rhatische Bahn, which operates services within Canton Graubünden. Buses complement the train services and stations are generally found in the forecourts of train stations. Many cities also have trams.

There are ferry services operating on Switzerland’s largest lakes including Luzern’s Vierwaldstattersee, Lago di Lugano, Maggiore and Como. Ferry services are generally seasonal, between April and October.

The post bus is a novel way of getting to the remotest parts of Switzerland. The service has been operating for 100 years. One of the most scenic mountain/valley journeys runs from Meiringen over four alpine passes – Grimsel Pass (2,163m / 7,100 feet), Nufenen Pass (2,478m / 8,130 feet), Gotthard Pass (2,092m / 6,800 feet) and Susten Pass (2,148m / 7,047 feet). There are 25 bridges and 23 tunnels along this route.

There are many ways of getting to the top of the mountains. These include funicular, cable-car, gondola, T-bar skilift or draglift.

SWISS, the flag carrier, offers domestic Switzerland flights between Basel, Bern, Geneva, Lugano and Zurich.

What is good to know if travelling to Switzerland?

  • The northeast of Switzerland (near Germany) is less well-known than the rest of the country. The city of St Gallen, an old textile town, has a beautiful baroque cathedral and a well-preserved medieval town centre. The city is the gateway to Lake Constance and the mountainous Appenzell region.
  • It’s possible to trace the footsteps of Heidi, the heroine of Johanna Spyri’s classic book in Maienfeld, Eastern Switzerland. In Heidi’s Village there is Heidi’s house, which can be toured, a petting zoo, shop and post office. There is also a Heidi trail from the village to the mountain which takes about 90 minutes.
  • The Glacier Garden in Lucerne is a natural monument with glacial potholes and fossilised shells and palm leaves that date back 20 million years. There are several attractions here, the most famous of which is the Lion monument carved out of rock. It was carved out of the cliff in the 1800s to commemorate the deaths of 700 Swiss guards who were cut down by French revolutionaries storming the Tuilleries in Paris in 1792. There are also botanical gardens and a Hall of Mirrors.
  • St Moritz, Davos and Zermatt are the most famous ski resorts. Other popular resorts include Verbier, Klosters, Gstaad, Wengen, Grindelwald, Arosa and Murren.
  • Rheinfalls is the largest waterfall in Europe. It is a 30-minute drive or hour train journey from Zurich. There is a platform that extends over the water so it’s possible to get very close to the falls. There are a couple of boat trips you can take too. One drops tourists in the middle of the falls and picks them up later, the other motors to the foot of the waterfalls, cuts its engines and the water pushes it away.
  • Bicycle: leave a small deposit at the Velogate, and a bike is yours for six hours.
  • The Kunsthaus in Zurich boasts treasures of the art world such as Picasso, Munch, Monet and Chagall topping the bill.
  • Are you planning to visit one of the main cities in Switzerland? Trivago is a useful website that helps you decide where to stay. It lets you compare reviews and prices for hotels in Zurich, hotels in Geneva or hotels in Basel.
