Switzerland travel guide

4.7
Bodies of Water · Mountains · Specialty Museums
Immerse yourself in a snow-capped mountain wonderland in Switzerland's serene Alpine setting. See the world-renowned Matterhorn, Switzerland's second-highest mountain at 4,478 m (14,962 ft) tall, or zoom down the mountains on toboggan, ski, or snowboard. In the warmer seasons hike around the rolling green hillsides covered with pine trees and picturesque aqua blue lakes. Luxurious cities dotted with cozy wooden chalets and colorful flowerbeds balance quaintness with first-class cultural offerings. Indulge in the country's opulence of milk chocolate, cheese fondue, and keg-carrying St. Bernard dogs.

Canton of Bern travel guide

4.4
The Canton of Bern is home to a diverse landscape of plateaus, breathtaking mountains, waterfalls, and lakes. In the capital city you'll find the Old Town, built in a loop of the river Aare. Its sandstone houses, narrow streets, fountains, and medieval atmosphere have earned it World Heritage Status. Sightseeing stops on your itinerary include the 101 m (331 ft) high platform at the Rose Garden, the bear family at Bear Park, and the Houses of Parliament that often open their doors to tourists. Shop the 6 km (3.7 mi) long covered medieval promenade, the longest shopping arcade in Europe. The boutiques, bars, and cabaret stages, some housed in vaulted cellars, are among Bern's other tourist attractions. Outside of the capital city, hike valleys and foothills, or take on the staggeringly steep mountain cliffs by ski or snowboard.
