Switzerland — the land of stupendous mountains, serene lakes, and beautiful alpine resorts — is not only one of the richest countries of the world; it is also one of the happiest. Owing to a stable economy and booming tourist industry, Switzerland has claimed its status as a must-visit tourist destination. A range of adventure sports — hiking, mountain biking and skating, paragliding, etc — also make this country a favorite of adrenaline junkies.

If you have decided to embark on a short trip to this breathtakingly beautiful nation, you must keep a few things in mind. Even though Switzerland is a part of the Schengen states, it does not use Euro as its currency. Instead, it uses Swiss Franc. Instead of buying Swiss currency, consider using your credit card. This way you will be acquitted of local hagglers who will try their best to rob you of your money by offering a very low exchange rate. Yet another interesting fact about Switzerland is that it has four national languages — German, French, Italian, and Romansh. Even if you are not familiar with any of these, you need not worry. Swiss people speak English fluently.

Switzerland is expensive — if you are on a budget trip, use public transport and avoid flashy restaurants. You may be told to buy a Swiss pass, but shut your ears to any such advice. The pass isn’t going to serve its value if you are in Switzerland for a short span. Take second-class seats to save money. In any case, the second-class on Swiss trains is better than the first-class on most others. Always keep a water bottle with you, which you can easily refill using public water fountains. Water bottles are expensive, and you will end up saving money if you remember this advice.

Switzerland is home to some of the most scenic places. While everyone will recommend visiting Lucerne, Interlaken, or Zurich, the real feel of Switzerland exists in its quaint towns and obscure wonders. Switzerland is home to Europe’s biggest waterfall — the Rhine Falls. It also houses the beautiful Alps. The Alps are home to some of the highest mountains. This snow-covered peak will exhilarate your senses. Take some time out to see incredible Matterhorn. And while you are in the Alps, remember to pay a visit to Aletsch Glacier, a 27-billion-ton piece of ice. This 120-kilometre-long glacier is the largest glacier of Europe.
The Bern Old Town also commands attention.

This, UNESCO World Heritage Site, will take you to yore, exposing you to the times of cobbled streets and obsolete arcades. The mesmerizing town of Appenzell should also be on your list. Other than beautiful towns and colossal mountains, Switzerland’s picturesque lakes and valleys also deserve a special mention. The Lauternrunnen Valley puts enthralling scenery on display. The Lake Oeschinen is surrounded by mountains on three sides. The blue of rivulets against the green of forest and grey and white of mountains makes for picturesque beauty.
The truth is there are only a few places as beautiful as Switzerland, and there is no denying that.
