Attractions from Switzerland

The capital Bern (Bern)
The Swiss capital, Bern, is a charming old city filled with classic examples of Germen, French and Swiss architecture. The great cathedral, in the centre of Bern's old district, dominate the city, which otherwise also contains numerous other historic sights. The river Aare traverses the city and also contributes to the very special charm and idyll of the Swiss capital.
The town of Chur - Switzerlands oldest town (Chur)
Switzerland's oldest town, Chur, has benefited from its good location by the pass roads to Italy for centuries. Chur's long history has marked the city, and you'll among other things, find a fantastic cathedral, filled with art treasures.
The ski resort St. Moritz - a winter paradise (Eastern Switzerland)
St. Moritz hosted the Olympic Winter Games in 1928 and 1948, and the area is fantastically well suited for all kinds of winter sports. All the slopes and pistes are located at 1,800 metres height and above, and ski lifts and aerial ropeways en masse takes care of the transport between the various areas. St. Moritz can also offer a stay at a health resort by the city's hot springs, whose health-bringing qualities have been known for centuries.
The Swiss National Park (Eastern Switzerland)
Around 200,000 tourists visit the Swiss National Park every year, and with good reason. The park contains unique examples of Switzerland's flora and fauna, and cars are permitted. The national park has been situated south of the Inn River for more than 100 years, and strict surveillance makes sure that visitors get a great experience.
The city of Fribourg (Fribourg)
The charming Fribourg is situated at the bank of the curly Saane River, and is the capital of the canton of Fribourg as well. A walk through the streets of the city is like a walk back in time. Fribourg is rightly proud of its many historical buildings, of which the church Église des Cordeliers, with its famous altarpieces, should be mentioned.
Le Jet dEau Fountain - Genevas spurting landmark (Geneva)
Le Jet d'Eau is a fountain located in Lake Geneva and serves in the summer as the city's landmark. The fantastic jet of water can reach as high as 145 metres, and the fountain is lit on Sundays and holidays. It doesn't spurt during the winter.
Saint Pierre Cathedral - the burning cathedral (Geneva)
Cathédrale de Saint Pierre, from the 12th century, has been the object of several interesting excavations. It has been burned several times, but has always been rebuilt. The church is situated on Place du Bourg-de-Four, constituting Geneva's actual city centre, and a tour of the church can turn into a longer trip.
The Geneva parks (Geneva)
Geneva contains a large number of idyllic parks, where the fountains and intimate concert music constitute a perfect setting for a relaxing trip away from the sometimes rather hectic city.
The city of Gstaad (Gstaad)
Gstaad, in western Berner Oberland, is on the same level as St. Moritz, regarding winter sports facilities. The city has almost everything a traveller can expect from an international winter sport resort. In the summer, Gstaad hosts the international tennis tournament Swiss Open and a just as international classical music festival.
The city of Interlaken (Interlaken)
Interlaken is the essence of Swiss tourism, where you'll find a fantastic view of the immense Jungfrau, the more than 100 year old hotel Grand Hotel Victoria-Jungfrau and an atmosphere of classical Swiss romanticism.
