A huge part of Switzerland’s appeal exists in the fact this European hideaway has something for EVERYBODY. Whether your idea of fun involves hurtling down death-defying slopes or sampling every type of cheese imaginable, its guaranteed that the Swiss will have something for you.
It’s a well known fact the Swiss like to keep things neutral, and this transcends into the way this great little nation ensures there’s an activity catered for every type of visitor.
SWISS and Switzerland Tourism have teamed up to present Stopover Switzerland, the most convenient and affordable way to explore Switzerland’s iconic sites when time is precious.
With travel habits always changing, here are the 4 classic travellers you’ll always encounter:
THE HARD-CORE HIKER
Nothing evokes Switzerland more than an image of the snow-capped Alps soaring over a lake. In spring and summer, these are begging to be climbed and offer some of the world’s best short walks.
If that’s not enough there are also 1484 lakes to explore too. For the cooler months there is nowhere better in the world to hit the slopes and indulge in après-ski.
Switzerland Stopover packages like the Interlaken package and the Zermatt package are great options for the hard-core hikers and nature lovers.
THE CULTURE VULTURE
Whether culture buffs base themselves in one city or spread their stop over a few, there’s a wealth of galleries, museums and architecture to delve into in Switzerland.
Geneva consistently wins “leading city break destination” at the World Travel Awards, while Bern’s street art and Zurich’s Altstadt can’t be missed. Lesser known gems like Grindelwald are within easy reach too.
The Zurich package is perfect options for your clients that love to immerse themselves in the culture of a place.
A true Swiss chocolatier knows their coca beans better than a sommelier knows their grapes. Chocolate making here is an art form and the results are divine.
Not a sweet-tooth? There are over 450 types of cheese produced in Switzerland, so whether they prefer raclette or fondue there’s something for everyone.
Match it with the delicious wine from Biel, Murton or the Valley of the Rhone and everyone is happy.
For some favourite stopovers select Montreux or Lucerne.
THE INSTAGRAM INFLUENCER
Any traveller that loves getting the perfect gram will be wowed by the @mySwitzerland handle. Think perfect sunsets over mountain villages like Lugano, reflections over Lake Lucerne, meandering alleys in Zurich’s old city or the Matterhorn’s vistas.
