Cheap Flights to Switzerland

Officially named the Swiss Confederation, Switzerland is a landlocked country in Central Europe that shares a border with Germany to the north, Italy to the south, Austria and Liechtenstein to the east and France to the west. The country is geographically divided between the Alps, Jura and the Swiss Plateau. 

Switzerland is well-known for its majestic mountains but also has a gorgeous plateau of rolling hills and plains as well as some large lakes. The country’s Alpine climate is also a big draw for tourists especially those who enjoy skiing and mountaineering activities. Switzerland enjoys a temperate climate but can vary depending on the altitude. Their winter months are cold, cloudy, snowy and at times rainy while the summer month can be cool to warm, at times humid with occasional rain showers.

Switzerland is a member of the Schengen Agreement so when planning a trip to Europe, include Switzerland to your itinerary. Here are just a few of the top things to do in Switzerland:

Lake Geneva – Located on the northern side of the Alps, Lake Geneva is shared between Switzerland and France. It is considered to be one of the largest lakes in Europe. The lake is also the largest body of water in Switzerland and shaped like a crescent with horns pointing south. If lucky, travelers can see yachts and high-performance catamarans racing on the lake.

The Jungfrau – Located between the southern canton of Bern and northern canton of Valais, the Jungfrau is one of the main summits of the Bernese Alps. It helps forms a massive wall that overlooks the Bernese Oberland and Swiss Plateau.
