Regions in Switzerland

The Bernese Oberland

The Bernese Oberland is one of the most stunning regions in Switzerland.

Region Zurich

Zurich isn’t just one of Switzerland’s most alluring cities… it’s also in the heart of its very own region, which consists of the city itself, Lake Zurich and other surroundings. Part of what’s referred to as the Swiss Plateau, the landscape is relatively flat, here – the perfect break for those who want some respite from traversing up Switzerland’s many peaks.

South-West Switzerland

With Lake Geneva as its leading landmark, southwest Switzerland is a hub of heavenly landscapes. Head here if you like pretty towns in Southern-European style, grape-filled vineyards, sunny boulevards and ancient castles… it’s a paradise of them all. A special highlight? A trip on the Chocolate Train, which wheels between a smattering of cheese and chocolate factories near Gruyères.


Rugged alpine nature and the highest peaks of the Alps – including the famous Matterhorn – are the defining elements of this exciting region. Go hiking, biking, tasting, and sightseeing your way around Valais across an adventure-focused getaway, which in addition, is a brilliant place in which to get your spa fix.
