    Ever thought of a place that is blessed with unusual happiness, a place where nature and city live together in perfect harmony, a place where everything seems otherworldly and serene? These ethereal sites may seem straight out of a fairy tale or ideal for storybooks but they do exist in real-world and Switzerland is one of the incredible proofs! It is a Central European country where “peace prevails in every corner and everything looks prettier, calmer and wiser” and indeed one of the most beautiful places on the earth. Considered as Europe’s mountain playground and a country with striking contrasts between adventure, exploration and relaxation, Switzerland has been a classic tourist attraction for years now that has only gained consistent popularity. While the visitors from all over the world travel here to ascend the slopes of the Alps, breathe the crisp air and look down from the top of the world, they also find other thriving places to visit in Switzerland steeped in history and culture scattered generously across the country.
     
    The size of Switzerland is inversely proportional to its huge tourism potential and it is remarkable to note that a country so small has so much to offer. The scenic Alps and their rolling hills ideal for snow-walking and skiing, crystal clear lakes and waterfalls with surreal shades of blue, the very famous Swiss chocolate and cheese, watches and knife, ancient castles, churches and picturesque countryside, endless green landscapes that seem to be plucked out of a postcard, magnificent vineyards and what not! Add to this its record of being a safe tourist destination, with well-maintained roads and world-class resorts, red trains curling up to unbelievable heights, amazing places to visit in Zürich, unmissable Bern tourist attractions and you know you have a perfect spot to unwind and enjoy the Swiss life at ease. The towns and cities here are perfectly blended into nature and modernity. While Zurich, Geneva and Basel offer a pinch of everything exciting from an excellent array of museums and galleries, historic buildings and renowned music festivals to chic bars and cafes, its capital Bern on the other hand, has a stunning medieval old town and a river that hugs the city tight, making it an ideal spot for taking a dip in nature as well as in history. Some of the Switzerland Tourist Attractions that you should definitely consider adding to your itinerary are The Matterhorn, Jungfraujoch (the top of Europe), Lucerne, Lake Geneva, Lake Lugano and Ticino, Swiss National Park and the list goes on…
     
    The breathtakingly beautiful Switzerland has entertained and enticed tourists for a very long time; thanks to its darling cities - Zurich and Bern and their exceptional experiences that have been adding a tinge of curiosity amongst the travellers with each passing year. While people are likely to start their Switzerland tour in Zurich, many prefer to explore the capital Bern at first. The medieval air of the city with its fountains with fantastic folk figures on their tops, sandstone facades, narrow streets, cellar shops and historic towers is unique. And undoubtedly, one of the most incredible Bern Attractions is its cobbled and ancient Old town which is also a UNESCO Heritage site, surrounded by the beautiful River Aare that is ideal for swimming, tubing, rafting and paddle boarding. Although Bern has a very good public transport network it is best to explore the city centre, its gardens and famed museums on foot. On the other hand, Zurich, the most visited city in the country, is considered ideal for those who adore art and aesthetics. The vibe here is unlikely to be found in any other Swiss city; there are quaint and quiet streets set against the Alpine backdrop and a beautiful lakefront and then there is a rush of restaurants, bars and cafes, concert halls and galleries that familiarize you with the real buzz of the city centre. Each of Zürich Tourist Attractions is diverse in its way; however, nothing beats the charm of the Museum of Art that displays a vast collection of contemporary works from the world's most celebrated artists such as Pablo Picasso and Van Gogh. Zurich’s Bahnhofstrasse is the city’s main shopping boulevard and another tourist draw as you can find a wide variety of designer shops, brand stores, books and of course the city’s best chocolates. What’s more? The city surprisingly throws one of Switzerland’s wildest parties: the techno-pumping Street Parade in August every year and is one event you must experience.
