Why do people go to Switzerland
Just a few decades ago, Switzerland was considered the world’s most beautiful region and dubbed “paradise on earth. While global tourism has since discovered a lot of other similar paradises, the country remains one of the most visited regions in Europe and here are some prime reasons that attract people to it.
Whether you stay at a luxurious hotel, posh resort or a budget-friendly chalet, your Swiss vacation would be made memorable by visiting legendary waterfalls like Rhine Falls, the mysterious Trümelbach Falls or any of the other 70+ falls in the Lauterbrunnen Valley. Bernese Oberland’s Staubbach Falls is another attraction. The legendary Matterhorn Mountain is another must see spot in Switzerland. Switzerland’s sun lounge, Ticino features gorgeous sun-kissed shores with red-roofed village houses dotting the stunning mountainous scenery.
Western Switzerland has a region called Watch Valley where one can pick out an authentic Swiss watch. With thousands of brands to choose from, the region is known for being the best place to get a unique treasure or souvenir.
every year, the Cresta run skeleton track is made using natural ice which makes its tag of being the “bobsled run in the world” appear all the more rightful. With 217 miles of ski pistes, the St. Moritz resort in the Engadin is perfect for indulging in winter sports and snowy thrills amongst a breathtaking mountainscape.
