It’s hard to beat Switzerland for its beautiful Alpine scenery and quaint villages oozing storybook charm. The soaring snowcapped peaks of the Alps – remembering those Tomblerons you garble, glittering blue lakes, emerald valleys, glaciers, and picturesque lakeside hamlets infuse this picturesque scenery as fairytale-like magnificence.

There are world-class international resorts behind the cliffs, valleys, and lakes. Activities including hiking, biking, climbing, paragliding, skiing, and tobogganing are the best experiences in this region.

Travelers come here for a jaw-dropping panorama but are intrigued by the many cultural appeals. ZurichGeneva, and Lausanne are soaked in history and offer excellent showrooms and galleries, historic buildings, and renowned music festivals.

Interlacken and Lauterbrunnen

Feel the vibe of the sound of music while exploring Lauterbrunnen Village. When you talk about waterfalls, massive cliffs, and lush greens, that’s precisely how this village looks.

If you intend to visit these places, prepare your hiking boots. Trails, including the award-winning Panoramaweg (Panorama Trail), take you onto the hillsides past chalets and farms, where the views are just as impressive.

At 2960 meters above sea level, the Schilthorn is the highest mountain in the region, but it is well worth a visit.
