Switzerland

Switzerland can more than fulfil the alpine fantasy of picturesque mountainsides, wooden chalets dusted with snow and crystal clear lakes bordered by pine trees. Celebrated ski resorts such as St Moritz and Klosters draw winter sports fanatics from all over the world, but whether you're into skiing or not, you can't fail to be captivated by Switzerland's sublime scenery.

If you want to encounter another side of the country's charms, Geneva and Zürich are lovely cities to spend some time in. Geneva, divided in two by the river Rhône, boasts a quaint old town full of historic buildings, churches and traditional patisseries, as well as a bustling modern town, full of upmarket shopping facilities. Zürich, in the north, is Switzerland at its most cosmopolitan and dynamic, with the best nightlife in the country.
