Switzerland might be one of the most idyllic and romanticized countries in the world. Famous for its snowy Alps, austerity, and accuracy, it’s fare to say that it doesn’t mind being set apart. Learn about luxury Switzerland travel with Ker & Downey below.
Of course the most iconic destination in Switzerland are the mountains. Indeed, Switzerland boasts a reputation as the most mountainous country in Europe. Exclusive chalets and quaint hamlets rest in the shadows of some of the most coveted ski resorts in the world. Of course, the Matterhorn stands most prominent of all, with year round winter sporting available on any luxury Switzerland holiday.
Luxury Switzerland travel wouldn’t be complete without the country’s many lakes. The lakes of Switzerland, particularly Lake Lucerne, make up the country’s other prized portion. Meanwhile, Lake Geneva and its surrounding cities, Lausanne and Geneva, reveal an elegant and scenic cosmopolitanism. Many international organizations—from NGOs to banking—as well as world-class design firms reside here.
The country’s world-renown neutrality is likely responsible for the amazing preservation of cities like Bern, the nation’s capital. A luxury Switzerland holiday to Bern proves idyllic. Indeed, Bern’s medieval street plan remains unchanged, showing off waterways, and architecture of dating back to the 12th and 13th centuries. The town’s continued growth has left it with stunning buildings from subsequent eras, including the Neo-Renaissance parliament.
Nowhere does the country’s ancient and modern identity come together with more panache than in Zurich. The nation’s banking and finance center boasts a luxury and style to match. However, instead of glass skyscrapers and modern development dominating the city’s streetscape, Zurich has preserved its pre-medieval cobblestone streets, waterfront promenades, and the charm of its Altstadt (old town).
