The tourist attractions of Switzerland are par excellence the green pastures, the alpine lakes and the majestic mountains of the Alpine chain. In this country, natural attractions are undoubtedly the main reason for a visit. The direct contact with nature, the winter centers, the variety of landscapes, cultures, languages of Switzerland, concentrated on a small area, are the strong point of this country.

But Switzerland also has much more to offer tourists. The country has numerous cities with historic centers of great beauty. Swiss cities are symbols of culture and modern well-being, are cities on a human scale, with excellent public services and really pleasant to visit.
