Let’s be honest: can you imagine Switzerland being without Alps? Without mountains and their rich green meadows, woods and snow-covered peaks touching the skies? Hardly I would say!
After all, more than half of the Swiss Confederation is made of the Alps. With Alps we refer to the Western Alps with peaks rising above 4,000 m such as the legendary Matterhorn. But it also refers to lower altitude areas such as the Alpine pastures, where tradition is of fundamental importance and customs are still handed on from one generation to the next.
The Swiss Alps (pic) are not only those known best on an international scale, but boast a unique variety of experiences and opportunities: from Grisons bordering the regions of Tyrol and Lombardy to the southern flair and enchanting lakes of Ticino, the summits of Valais and the Bernese uplands. Well-known are also St. Moritz and Davos, especially with the rather sophisticated and international friends of the mountains - but don’t worry: Switzerland provides unique mountain experiences to everyone.
