Planning a honeymoon or a holiday with family out of station? Switzerland is a beautiful place to spend on and we have accumulated a list of what you can do there.

Ski Craze

Go zip zap zoom at the tooth-shaped Matterhorn with an excellent iconic view of the calming mountains. If you don't want to go down the hill, admire the view by heading to the summit of the Rothorn, which can be reached via a cable car in 30 minutes.

In Switzerland, you have to explore it all. There are so many traditions and festivals here and the best part is you get to participate in them without any inhibitions. At Basler Fasnacht, you can join the masked pipers and drummers who march through the streets of Basel at 4 a.m. (yes, you read that right). You can even partake in Swiss wrestling here at Mount Rigi, or head to the canton of Valais for the annual Witches Downhill Race. Sounds interesting? There is so much to do throughout the year and you will see so many oddities and eccentricities that we would love you to get in touch with your wild side here.   

The GoldenPass Line

This line is a scenic route through Switzerland and it offers a glimpse to some of the country’s best scenery. Almost 6 hours long, this journey takes you from Lucerne to Montreux (or vice-versa) through six Swiss cantons via three mountain passes and landscapes crossing several lakes, waterfalls and valleys and more. Keep your camera fully charged!

Go To The Highest Station In Europe

Situated 3,454 metres above sea level, the Jungfraujoch in the Bernese Oberland is the highest railway station in Europe. Of you take this train you can admire the Swiss Alps for sure. Take the Kleine Scheidegg pass and treat your eyes to the peaks of the Eiger, Jungfrau and Mönch mountains on the way. You can also see the 23 kilometre Great Aletsch glacier, the longest glacier in the Alps, in front of you.

Swiss National Park

The oldest national park founded in 1914, here, is located in the canton of Graubunden in the east of Switzerland. It covers over 170 square kilometres, with 80 kilometres of hiking trails. Here you will find Ibexes, chamois, marmots, golden eagles and bearded vultures and more.

Learn Languages

Switzerland’s 26 cantons speak more than three languages. Towards Geneva, you can practice your French, as you head towards the Mediterranean climes of Ticino, you will hear some Italian. Towards the centre, north and east you’ll come across German and Swiss German, which are not similar at all. In the canton of Graubunden, you’ll hear Romansh which is the national language of Switzerland.

Yes, we have known Switzerland for the cheese more but the wine here is amazing! The perfect time and place to try them out is at the caves ouvertes in early summer. You pay a small price for a glass and it is worth the experience. The Lavaux vineyards is a part of a 12-kilometre stretch of vineyards that should be a part of your must-do list.

Cheese-Making Anyone?

You like your cheese melted, or in a fondue or raclette or want it raw, the cheese here will never disappoint you. Le Gruyere is the most popular of the Swiss cheeses. The town’s cobbled streets are amazing to explore, and then, of course, we have the traditional meringue and rich Gruyere cream.
