Switzerland's 10 Best Tourist Attractions
Switzerland's 10 Best Tourist Attractions according to Lonely Planet
10. Zürich Lifestyle
Zürich is the largest city in Switzerland by land area and population. It is the financial centre of Switzerland and houses the stock exchange and the headquarters of a large number of national and international companies. National and international media agencies as well as most of the national TV channel companies are also located here.
9. Lakeside Lucerne
Lucerne is a beautiful small city in the heartland of Switzerland, across the lake from Altdorf, where legend has it William Tell shot an apple off of his son's head. In addition to being a fine place to visit in and of itself Lucerne is a great base from which to explore famous Swiss sites such as Mount Rigi, Pilatus, Titlis and the Rütli Meadow.
8. Epic Outdoors
No trio are more immortalised in mountaineering legend than Switzerland's 'big three' -- Eiger (Ogre), Mönch (Monk) and Jungfrau (Virgin) - peaks that soar to the sky above the traditional 19th-century resort of gorgeous old Grindelwald. And whether you choose to schuss around on skis, shoot down Europe's longest toboggan run on the back of an old-fashioned sledge, bungee-jump in the Gletscherschlucht or ride the train up to Europe's highest station at 3454m, your heart will thump.
7. Capital Bern
Berne, the capital of Switzerland, is a small to medium sized city with a population of about 130,000 in the city proper and roughly 350,000 in the agglomeration area. It sits on a peninsula formed by the meandering turns of the river Aare. The remarkable design coherence of the Berne's old town has earned it a place on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
6. Romance in Montreux
Mostly known for its world-famous two week long Jazz Festival (a bit of a misnomer: you're just as likely to catch David Bowie or Beck as, say Steve Coleman), Montreux is well worth a wander through, if only to get to the scenic Château de Chillon or to get to the hiker's paradise of Hauts de Montreux.
5. Aletsch Glacier
The Aletsch Glacier is the largest glacier in the Alps. It has a length of about 23 km and covers more than 120 square kilometres in the eastern Bernese Alps in the Swiss canton of Valais. The Aletsch Glacier is composed of three smaller glaciers converging at Concordia, where its thickness is estimated to be near 1 km.
4. Lake Geneva
Lake Geneva, known in French as Lac Léman, is one of the largest lakes in western Europe. It lies on the course of the Rhone river on the frontier between France and Switzerland. The main attractions of the region are the cities and towns surrounding the lake, the opportunities for skiing and hiking in both mountain ranges, and of course the lake itself.
3. Hiking in the Swiss National Park
No country in Europe is more synonymous with magnificent and mighty hiking than Switzerland, and its high-altitude national park with eagle-dotted skies is the place to do it. Follow trails through flower-strewn meadows to piercing blue lakes, knife-edge ravines, rocky outcrops and Alpine huts where shepherds make summertime cheese with cows' milk, fresh that morning from the bell-clad herd.
The Matterhorn is one of the tallest mountains in the Alps. The Matterhorn has a pyramidal shape with four faces facing the four compass points: the north and east faces overlook the town of Zermatt; the south face overlooks the resort town of Breuil-Cervinia; and the west face looks towards the mountain of Dent d'Hérens, which straddles the border.
1. The Glacier Express
The Glacier Express is an express train connecting railway stations of the two major mountain resorts of St. Moritz and Zermatt in the Swiss Alps. The train is operated jointly by the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn (MGB) and Rhaetian Railway (RhB). For much of its journey, it also passes along and through the World Heritage Site known as the Rhaetian Railway in the Albula/Bernina Landscapes.

The Swiss town of Arth: between two lakes
Welcome to my comprehensive look at Arth, a Swiss town of 11,000 people on the shores of Lake Zug, in the canton of Schwyz. The town has a beautiful location, being between Lakes Zug and Lauerz, and in almost every view of its streets and buildings there are mountains in the background. As usual in Switzerland, you can get here on public transport by scheduled passenger boat or train from Zurich, Lucerne or Basel, and while there is motor traffic in the town, it is not excessive. There is also a connection here to the “queen of the mountains” cog railway which will take you up the Rigi. Arth is in the heart of Switzerland’s cherry growing area, and kirsch is an important product here.
My film, taken on a sunny day in early spring, shows the beauty of Arth’s lakeside setting, as well as looking at its buildings, ranging from traditional Swiss style architecture to colourful modern designs. It shows a small amount of industry and business, including petrol stations, hotels, restaurants, and a large building site with big cranes working. There are some grand buildings and churches, with apartments on the main streets too. A good place to live!
Discovering Switzerland is always my dream.

SWITZERLAND: Rhine Falls - waterfall near Schaffhausen [HD]
The Rhine Falls (Rheinfall in German) is the largest waterfall in Europe.
The falls are located on the Upper Rhine near the town of Schaffhausen in northern Switzerland, near the border with Germany.
They are 150 m (450 ft) wide and 23 m (75 ft) high.
The falls cannot be climbed by fish, except by eels that are able to worm their way up over the rocks.
The Rhine Falls were formed in the last ice age, approximately 14,000 to 17,000 years ago, by erosion- resistant rocks narrowing the riverbed.
