Savouring the flavours of Swiss gastronomy
Swiss cuisine takes influences from its neighbours to create unique, and often indulgent, dishes which will appeal to any type of traveller. Fondue is perhaps the country's most famous food export, whether in the form of cheese at dinner, or chocolate as a delicious dessert. Raclette is another tasty choice, made of potatoes with melted cheese and gherkins or fruit. In the capital, Bern, the Berner platte dish is a smorgasbord of smoked meats with various vegetables.
International food is very easy to come by in Switzerland's cities, with Italian and French as perennially popular options. Michelin-starred restaurants in Geneva and Zürich offer fine dining options that let you top off a romantic trip to a holiday apartment in style. If you're looking to try a refreshing local beverage, Rivella is a unique soft drink made with milk that comes in a variety of flavours. Pinot noir and merlot wines are highly popular local varieties, while the brandy Bon Père William is a classic served alongside fondue.
Exploring the culture of Switzerland
It's worth visiting each of the country's major towns to discover their intriguing differences. In Geneva, the Palace of Nations is the home to the United Nations, perhaps one of Europe's most important political buildings. The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum is also here, adding to the city's international identity.
In Zürich, the 12th century Grossmünster Cathedral and Swiss National Museum offer insights into the religious and cultural histories of this fascinating country. The Kunsthaus Zürich displays important European works from the 15th century to today. The famous Castle of Chillon, close to Montreux, and the Abbey of St Gallen are further examples of cultural highlights, ideal for city-centric visits.
Places to explore in Switzerland
Holiday homes come in many forms in the country, from Alpine lodges perfect as a base for skiing, to city flats that put you at the heart of the action in Zürich, Geneva, or Bern. On Lake Geneva, you'll also find the city of Lausanne, with gorgeous palaces, medieval streets, and a historic cathedral.
Ticino is the Italian-speaking part of the country, with the breathtaking city of Lugano nestled between a lake and the Alps, offering one of the many examples why the natural beauty of Switzerland is so prized. Besides the stunning natural scenery, the city's charming Old Town and Cantonal Art Museum are also well worth a visit.
