Switzerland – Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch

With its snow-capped mountain peaks, crystalline Alpine lakes, well-preserved Medieval Old Towns, fairy-tale mountain villages, and high-class cities filled posh boutiques, there’s no shortage of ways to fall in love with Switzerland.

You can woosh down premier ski slopes, cruise in paddle steamers, soak in lavish spas, dip into pots of fondue, take in world-class art, and listen to renowned musicians. And, of course, there’s the chocolate. This petite country is big on things to do. To try and see everything would be daunting, but these are the 25 things you absolutely can’t miss.

In Zermatt, you can swoosh down first-class slopes and wind past the country’s most recognizable peak, the snaggletooth-shaped Matterhorn. But you don’t have to don skis to see the iconic Alpine mountain; the awe-inspiring Matterhorn reigns over the entire car-free town.

Stroll Through Lucerne

In the geographic heart of the country, Lucerne offers a quintessential Swiss experience: Jaw-dropping mountains lead to a medieval town nestled along the edge of a sapphire-blue lake lined with waterfront promenades and crisscrossed by picture-perfect, wood-covered bridges.
