Things to do in Switzerland

Things to do in Switzerland range from exploring famous cities, enjoying boat trips across clear, calm lakes, and taking rail journeys through truly spectacular landscapes.

The best way to discover Switzerland is by travelling from one city to the next via the expansive railway network, and then wandering the streets by foot. Located by the shores of Europe’s largest alpine lake, Geneva offers sleek city streets, jetting fountains and excellent restaurants.

One of the world’s most liveable cities, pretty and relaxed Zurich features an ancient centre with cobbled streets and spiked church steeples. There are worthwhile museums and galleries to visit in this lesser-known artistic hub – the city was the birthplace of Dadaism, and the modern art gallery of Kunsthaus is well-worth a visit.

Wander the old town of Bern and you will easily see why it has been designated a Unesco world heritage site. Surrounded by the winding Aare Rive, the medieval town is stuffed with Renaissance fountains, and lovely churches and bridges, as well as Switzerland’s tallest cathedral – affording an amazing panorama over the red roofs below.

Beyond the main cities, Switzerland’s scenery ranges from dramatic mountain vistas, picturesque valleys to glacier lakes.
