Did someone say international vacation? We did! And this time, our focus will be Switzerland, home to some of the greatest resorts, lakes, chocolate, and cheese you could ask for. So what should you put on your Swiss itinerary? Check out some awesome ideas below.
The unofficial symbol of Switzerland, this horn-shaped peak in the Swiss Alps is a true natural marvel. But don’t think you can easily climb the mountain: Ascending or descending is dangerous. It’s better to simply marvel at its beauty from afar.
Plateforme 10, Lausanne
Plateforme 10 is three museums in one – MCBA (Musée Cantonal des Beaux Arts), Photo Elysée photography museum, and MUDAC (Museum of Contemporary Design and Applied Arts) – providing visitors with a one-of-a-kind experience featuring cutting-edge art at its finest.
If a place is known worldwide for its chocolate, you absolutely cannot leave without trying it! Our suggestion? Check out Max Chocolatier. You can find this shop in one of two locations: Zurich and Lucerne. The luxury truffles are so mouthwatering that you’ll have to bring at least a pound home to savor.
Medieval City of Bern
If medieval architecture is your jam, Bern is the place to be. Every step will take you deeper into the roots of the town’s history, which goes back to 1191 when it was founded. Check the botanical gardens off your bucket list, learn about the Bern bears, and wait for the famous Zytglogge (clock tower) to chime.
Old Town Lucerne is wondrous. Start at the Chapel Bridge, then stroll the cobblestone streets and medieval squares to admire the glorious buildings featuring oriel windows and painted façades.
Make a day trip to the Rhine Falls and get as close to the water as possible on a viewing platform. Or, hop aboard a tour boat to the center of the falls to capture snapshots of the castles on either side. Definitely postcard-worthy.
