Switzerland contains modern cities separated by huge glaciers, green Alpine meadows, a large number of ski runs, small mountain villages and high mountain summits that are covered with snow all the year round. More than half of Switzerland is covered by the Alps, which is one of the most important mountain ranges in Europe. It is therefore an excellent country for snow and skiing holidays.
Basle is situated on the Rhine, on the border with France and Germany. This city has a wide range of museums and is not far away from the Black Forest and the Vosges mountains.
Geneva is a city with an international personality, a beautiful old town and an attractive flair.
Zurich is the biggest but also the most accessible city in Switzerland and most of it can easily be traversed on foot, making it ideal for walkers.
