Switzerland, Travel Guide
Of course, if there’s one thing the Swiss don’t mess around about its skiing. Arrive in peak snow season (mid-January to mid-March) and take your pick from a range of resorts offering pristine pistes for any ability. Zermatt is a crowd-pleaser, offering over a diverse selection of courses across Sunnegga, Gornergrat, Klein Matterhorn and Schwarzsee, while the constant view of the Matterhorn Mountain makes for an impressive backdrop.
Having hosted two Winter Olympics, St. Moritz (about 2.5 hours from Zürich) is a professional skier’s playground. It can also be a pricier option for travellers but it has the après scene to match. Here the swanky set up alongside each other at the glamourous King’s Club and sneak glances at world pros within the walls of Chesa Veglia.
This doesn’t mean families miss out on the fun, with many preferring the long winding intermediate runs along Corvatsch.
As one of the most expensive countries in Europe, Switzerland is often skipped over by budget travelers.
Yet, while it is not a cheap destination, Switzerland is one of the most beautiful places on earth.
This land-locked country is home to shimmering lakes (more than 7,000 of them!), picturesque mountains (hello Alps!), tiny walled medieval towns, historic cities, soaring peaks, endless green fields you want to run through, delicious chocolate and cheese, incredible beer, and friendly, welcoming people. It’s known for ski resorts, hiking trails, its neutral foreign policy stance, being a banking and finance center, and making Swiss watches.
Everything runs on time here, the country is safe, and everyone is super nice. I loved my time traveling around Switzerland and the country rocks no matter what time of the year you visit.
