Cities and towns steeped in history
You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to places to visit in Switzerland – and travelling between each one via one scenic route after another is just as dreamy as the places themselves.
Get ready to feel like you’ve been transported back in time – Lucerne’s medieval architecture includes the winding Chapel Bridge, a centuries-old footbridge and the Hofkirche St. Leodegar Church, with its impressive gothic towers. Each and every one is seemingly plucked straight out of a fairytale!
The idyllic mountain village of Zermatt lies at the bottom of the towering Matterhorn Peak, and the traditional town of Interlaken will mesmerise you once you’ve laid eyes on the emerald-coloured waters of Lake Thun.
A trip into Geneva is the perfect way to learn a little about Switzerland’s humanitarian past, with The Museum of Natural History and the Red Cross museum offering a fascinating insight into this stunning destination’s humble history.
Get musical in Montreux
Nestled between steep hills and situated on the shoreline of Lake Geneva, the municipality of Montreux is a must-visit – a city which wowed the late, great Freddie Mercury so much that he settled here and opened Queen’s own recording space, ‘Mountain Studio’.
The singer’s presence had such an impact on the city that a large statue of Freddie stands tall and proud overlooking the serene shores of Lake Geneva. Alongside a tour of the studio and the Montreux Jazz Festival, it draws in thousands of people every year – a selfie here never goes amiss.
