Switzerland is synonymous with snowy mountains. The Swiss Alps are the prime reason for visiting Switzerland and probably the best attraction the country has to offer.

Located in Central Switzerland, Mount Rigi is a perfect place to visit during Winter and Summer. During winter dense snowfall cover the mountain to make it look like a winter wonderland and during summer the green valley is exposed and makes it a perfect place for hiking.
Located 2132 feet above sea level, Mount Pilatus is covered deep in snow during winter and an excellent place to view the stunning panoramic view of Lucerne and its beautiful lake during summer. On a clear day, a total of 73 Alpine Peaks can be viewed from Mt Pilatus.
Zurich is Switzerland’s largest city. A bustling cosmopolitan city, Zurich is home to all the usual fanfare that a typical European city has to offer including Sites, Restaurants, cafe’s, Museums, Nightspots and Shopping. Zurich is a perfect stopover while you hop around the attractions of Switzerland or can be explored on its own.
Gorgeous lakes, perfect mountains, stunning sceneries, and cute little towns all around best summarizes Interlaken. Located between two lakes, Lake Thun and Lake Brienz, Interlaken is surrounded by some of the Alps highest peaks, Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau. One of the best ways to enjoy the region is by going on a cruise which takes you past the picturesque fishing villages, castles steeped in history and towering mountains.
