10 photos that will make you want to visit Switzerland

Switzerland is a magical country: lush green pastures grazed by bell wearing cows, lofty white mountains and turquoise lakes. Modern cities and chocolate box alpine villages. Rolling vineyards and a fairy tale valley with 72 waterfalls cascading down the walls. Bucket list hiking, cable cars, world class skiing and the best chocolate in the world - this country was made for road trips.


From UN headquarters Geneva to Freddie Mercury's beloved lakeside Montreux, trendy German speaking Zurich and the romantic medieval Lausanne, Bern and exquisite Gruyeres, you'll be spoilt for choice for a city break in Switzerland.
