This article mainly revolve around the travellers who are first timer to Switzerland or planning to visit Switzerland for the first time. Switzerland is a Top Destination in World and hot spot for travellers for holidaying. We will deal with following topics to be addressed to the readers that will help them to travel to Switzerland. Its very difficult to cover all the tourist destinations of Switzerland in one post and will try to give travellers brief report of beautiful land of Switzerland.

1. About Switzerland and its culture.
2. Basic Travel Informations.
3. Best Time To Visit. 
4. Major Cities.
5. Places to visit in Switzerland.
6. Switzerland Maps (Satellite Map Included).
7. Entry in Switzerland. Visa and Passport Details.

10. Luxury Trains.

1. a) About Switzerland - Switzerland is a landlocked country in Central Europe. It has borders with France to the west, Italy to the south, Austria and Liechtenstein to the east and Germany to the north. The climate is temperate, but varies with altitude. Switzerland has cold, cloudy, rainy/snowy winters and cool to warm, cloudy, humid summers with occasional showers. Switzerland is known for its mountains (Alps in south, Jura in northwest) but it also has a central plateau of rolling hills, plains, and large lakes. The highest point is Dufourspitze at 4,634 m while Lake Maggiore is only 195 m above sea level. 

1. b) Culture - Switzerland showcases three of Europe's most distinct cultures. To the northeast is the clean and correct, 8-to-5-working, more stiff Swiss-German-speaking Switzerland; to the southwest you find the wine drinking and laissez-faire style known from the French; in the southeast, south of the Alps, the sun warms cappuccino-sippers loitering in Italian-style piazzas; and in the center: classic Swiss flugelhorns and mountain landscapes. Binding it all together is a distinct Swiss mentality. 


Switzerland can be a glorious whirlwind trip whether you've packed your hiking boots, snowboard, or just a good book and a pair of sunglasses. 

2. Basic Travel Informations to be Known by Travelers.

3. Best Time to Visit - April-July and Sept-Oct. Those who love Ice Sport can try to visit in February also. Switzerland is a place that you can visit any time of the year. Summer registers high tourist traffic. 

4. Cities

Geneva — this centre of arts and culture is an international city home to around 200 governmental and non-governmental organizations
Interlaken — the outdoor and action sports capital of Switzerland; anything from skydiving, bungee jumping, hiking, white-water rafting, to canyoning
Lausanne — scenery, dining, dancing, boating and the Swiss wine-country are the draws
Lucerne — main city of the Central region with direct water links to all of the early Swiss historic sights
Lugano — a gorgeous old-town, a pretty lake, and the food is simply amazing

5. What are the places to visit in Switzerland.

5.1. Schilthorn and Piz Gloria The Schilthorn is a mountain in the Swiss Alps. The Piz Gloria is a revolving restaurant on the top of this mountain that was the location for the James Bond film "On Her Majesty's Secret Service." To reach this destination, 2970m above sea level, one must travel by a combination of train, bus and cable car. The cable cars up the mountain give an excellent panoramic view of the valley below. Once you reach the restaurant, you can dine for breakfast or lunch as you revolve around and get a 360 degree spectacular view.


You can walk outside and out onto the edge of the top of the mountain (which is actually pretty scary, but well worth it.) From the top of this mountain, you can see the Jungfrau, Monch and Eiger mountains, part of the Unesco World Heritage, as well as Interlaken and Lakes Brienz and Thunzersee

5.2. Jungfraujoch This is an adjacent Swiss mountain peak to the Schilthorn. You start off on the same train, whether going to Schilthorn or Jungfraujoch. Once you reach a certain point, you get on the Jungfrau railway. At the top of Jungfrau, you are at the highest point in Switzerland, 3454m. Once at the top, you can visit the observatory deck, where you can stand outside or inside glass walls and engage in the wonderful scenery.
On a clear day, you can see down to Interlaken below. This mountain also hosts an indoor ice palace, where everything is made of ice, including the walkways and walls. Different ice sculptures abound and you can take your picture with them. A tourist area hosts some restaurants and a gift shop as well. It is worth every minute and you will never forget the experience!

5.3. Matterhorn - The Matterhorn at 4,478 m or "Z'horu" as we call it in our local valesan Swiss-German dialect, is the most famous peak in Switzerland and the Alps. Zermatt is also a High End ski resort but very busy in the winter as well as in the summer season. 
The Matterhorn & the Jungraujoch are the most visited Switzerland Attractions. It is said that the Matterhorn is the most photographed mountain in the world. Well, it most certainly is the best known Attraction in Switzerland.
