Best Places to Visit in Switzerland
The Swiss Alps
collection of fine museums. Interlaken The "city between the lakes" offers great shopping, wonderful scenery, and a number of villages that are worth a visit. Interlaken may be "tourist" Switzerland but it does it so well that even the Swiss like the area. Surrounded by the Jungfrau, Eiger, and Mönch, Interlaken is a great base for touring and one of the most idyllic areas of Switzerland. Lausanne Situated on the northern edge of Lake Geneva, Lausanne is considered the ideal base to tour the Lake Geneva, Geneva, and Montreux. Lugano Lugano is a good town to base your explorations of the Ticino, the Italian speaking southern segment of Switzerland. This scenic town is situated on the northern bank of Lake Lugano and the Lake is the real reason to visit. In addition, be sure to see The Madonna degli Angioli Church (and its magnificent fresco). Tour the city on the tourist tram the Red Arrow (La Freccia Rossa), which runs from March through October. The Parco Botanico San Grato, about six miles from Lugano is an attractive place to visit, especially in the Spring. Also, you might be interested in exploring our Guide to the Italian Lakes with particular emphasis on Lake Maggiori and Lake Lugano. Basel Located near the headwaters of the Rhine, Basel is the point of disembarkation for many Rhine River cruises. This well-preserved city offers a blend of the traits of Germany and Switzerland. Basel offers several interesting museums and is worth a visit, if you have just ended a holiday cruise. Geneva Geneva is the home base of many international organizations and that role has given it a cosmopolitan bearing mixed with a distinct international flavor. Its Old Town is worth a visit, but Geneva's popularity is based more on its role in world affairs than its attractiveness as a tourism destination. Extraordinary Train Journeys
