Towns and Villages in Switzerland
The Swiss capital is a beautiful, medieval city with a host of sandstone buildings, towers and bridges. Built largely in the gothic style, it’s most famous for the multitude of stone arcades that shelter its main promenades.
Saas Fee is in a neighbouring valley to Zermatt. Offering a true alpine feel, Saas Fee enjoys views over numerous peaks and glaciers. The Saaser Museum provides detailed information about the village and its history.
Picture-postcard Lucerne is lined with historic houses and decorated with lovely frescoes. You can cross the lake by the picturesque Chapel Bridge, a covered, wooden bridge decorated with heraldic and religious images.
Chic and stylish, this popular resort in the heart of the Alps is set on a sunny plateau that is dotted with lakes and enjoys sweeping views across the Rhône Valley. The resort is made up of three villages and is well known for hosting the European Masters golf tournament each September.
The mountain village of Zermatt is one of Switzerland’s best-known holiday resorts. It sits in a picturesque valley, overlooked by perhaps the most famous Alpine peak of the Alps, the Matterhorn. Electric vehicles and horse-drawn carriages are used as cars are banned.
On the shores of Lake Geneva lies one of Europe’s most charming cities, with a host of sights to enjoy, from the famous Jet d’Eau fountain shooting water 140 metres in to the air, to the old town and St Peter’s Cathedral.
With a perfect setting on the banks of Lake Geneva, and the Savoy Alps on the horizon, Lausanne is a very beautiful old town. It has a surprisingly Mediterranean feel, and perhaps the finest gothic cathedral in Switzerland.
