If you’re seeking an iconic European city break, you can’t do much better than Zurich. Situated in Germanic northern Switzerland where the Limmat River meets Lake Zurich, and framed by the distant peaks of the Alps, it’s a city of striking beauty. Beyond the natural scenery and traditional architecture, Zurich buzzes with modern vibrancy, and is a fantastic place for contemporary restaurants and chic night-time hangouts. On the opposite end of the country you'll find Geneva, a city which offers similar charms. Famed for its plush boutiques, jewellers, and chocolatiers, this French-speaking town is the place to go for a laid-back luxury getaway that promises sophistication and lakeside scenery. For art lovers, a jaunt to Basel is a must, while history buffs will want to take a wander through the cobbled streets of Bern’s protected Old Town. Plan a trip to the Swiss Alps and you can enjoy some of the finest skiing on the planet. Stay in the world-famous resorts of St Moritz and Andermatt and visit the astonishing peaks of the Matterhorn and Eiger. In the summer, the Alps are an idyllic region of rolling greenery and sparkling lakes - perfect for hikers. At any time of year you can enjoy a trip to Jungfraujoch, a glacier saddle that houses the highest railway station in Europe.
