Just allow yourself to imagine azure blue lakes that seem to glitter amongst the snow-capped mountains or traditional cobbled streets packed with the richest chocolate and creamiest cheese from every shop front. Matterhorn Mountain is one of the main tourist attractions and is even featured on Toblerone Bars! Located within the charming town of Zermatt, which is totally car-free, it is the perfect place to spend a few peaceful hours people-watching in one of the many cafés.
Due to its microclimate, it is important not to disregard Switzerland as a summer destination and if you think city life is more for you, plan your trip around contemporary Zurich, this is definitely the place to go for families looking for somewhere different to explore!
If you are looking to experience adrenaline-pumping activities then the choices are endless, from mountain hiking, skiing and snowboarding, or if you are a complete beginner, why not try snowshoeing? For those who want to tick things off the bucket list, there are hot air balloon rides and even the chance to spend the night in your own Igloo!
