Welcome to BMU. This video is about Switzerland’s 21 most beautiful places.
Switzerland is a blend of Italian, French, and German cultures with a strong identity. Switzerland is known for its attractive cities, apres-ski chic, and idyllic mountain scenery complete with cuckoo-clock houses and bell-adorned cows.
Let’s see the attractions in Switzerland and please subscribe like and share the video.
1. Lake Geneva
Switzerland is known as the country of mountains and lakes, and each one is beautiful. Most mesmerising is Lake Geneva, the largest lake in the Swiss Alps and the second largest freshwater body in Central Europe. It’s beautiful and has clear waters. It’s called a mirror because the wind-blocking Alps make the water surface unshakable. The natural mirror reflects mountain peaks, vineyards, tall spruces, buildings, and mediaeval castles. Lake Geneva is the only place where you can sunbathe while admiring snow-capped mountains.
Zurich, on the northern shores of its namesake lake, has a stunning view of the Alps. More than 50 museums, 100 art galleries, boutiques, and a vibrant nightlife fill the city centre. Centuries-old buildings with frescoes and flowerpots are beautiful. St.Cathedral Peter’s in Zurich’s Old Town has Europe’s largest clock face.
3. Lucerne and Lake Lucerne
Lucerne is a quintessential Swiss city with traditional town squares, historic buildings, painted facades, and narrow cobblestone streets lined with shops selling traditional goods. One of the city’s mediaeval bridges dates to 1333. Lake Lucerne is a must-see in Lucerne. It’s a huge irregularly shaped lake surrounded by towering mountains, like Norway’s fjords.
4. Swiss National Park
Switzerland has one national park, but it’s great. Part of the UNESCO biosphere reserve, it’s home to beautiful scenery, wildlife, and 80 km of paths that allow visitors to explore the carefully preserved alpine environment. Expect azure rivers, peaks, and alpine forest.
5. Chateau de Chillon
Chateau de Chillon is one of the most fairytale-like places on Lake Geneva. This mediaeval castle on Lake Geneva’s rock island offers gorgeous views inside and out. The well-preserved castle has over a thousand years of history and inspired the works of Jeans-Jacque Rosseau and Lord Byron.
6. Zermatt and the Matterhorn
Valais is Switzerland’s highest ski resort. Zermatt is a picturesque Alpine village known for its proximity to the Matterhorn. This mountain’s steep slopes once scared off hikers. Since 1865, many brave mountaineers have reached the summit. Zermatt is one of the most beautiful places in Switzerland, but it’s also one of the most expensive.
Bern, near the country’s centre, is particularly beautiful. Switzerland’s capital is among Europe’s smallest. Bern’s mediaeval streets are UNESCO World Heritage-listed. It’s a compact, relaxed city where time moves slowly and locals aren’t as busy as others. Rolling hills and the glacial Aare River frame covered arcades, whimsical fountains, cobbled streets, world-class galleries, fantastic urban swimming, and traditional architecture.
Bernese Oberland’s Alpine village is one of Switzerland’s most beautiful destinations. Wengen is a picture-perfect Alpine village where wooden chalets cling to the Lauterbrunnen Valley slopes. It’s a car-free resort town with an upscale feel and belle époque hotels. In winter, Wengen’s population almost doubles due to the high altitude and beautiful scenery.
9. Lake Oeschinen
This beautiful lake in Switzerland’s Kander Valley is fed by three glacial brooks. In the winter, nature lovers ride the 3.5-kilometer toboggan run from the lake to the gondola station. Orchids, gentian, edelweiss, and grazing sheep and cows call the area home.
Interlaken is a traditional resort town located between two Alpine Lakes, but it’s the surrounding area that earned it a spot on this list. It’s at the foot of the most beautiful alpine range in all of Switzerland and arguably the world. The snowcapped mountains, waterfalls, glacial lakes, and alpine meadows are breathtaking. It’s also a great base for exploring the region’s mountains and lakes. Beautiful mountains, forests, meadows, and glaciers are great for hiking and skiing.
11. St Moritz
Engadin Valley’s highlight is one of the world’s oldest ski resorts, which attracts a wealthy crowd. St. Moriz has 322 sunny days per year, compared to its peers’ 190. This may be why royal dynasties, politicians, billionaires, and celebrities favour St. Moriz as a resort.
Brienz is a traditional village surrounded by mountains and Lake Brienz. Near Interlaken, it deserves special mention. Brunngasse was once named Europe’s most beautiful street. Most of the 18th-century wood-carved houses give it a chocolate-box look.
Villars-sur-Ollon, a sunlit resort town in the Rhone Valley, offers views of the Dan du Midi, Mont Blanc, and Lake Geneva. The world-famous ski resort has 25 kilometres of slopes and 44 kilometres of trails. Three snowparks, a snow kindergarten, sledding hills, winter hiking trails, and lively après ski activities are also available.
Grindelwald, one of Switzerland’s most famous ski resorts, is surrounded by the Jungfrau, Mönch, and Eiger mountains (3970 m). Nature crafted this unique landscape of steep rocks, plateaus, and gentle slopes. Nowhere in Central Europe do glaciers reach the valley. They’re accessible to skiers. In addition to skiing, Grindelwald is near the Blue Ice Grotto and Glacial canyon. The cogwheel railway on Kleine Scheidegg Mountain is the main attraction.
Basel, the 3rd largest Swiss city, sits between Germany and France on the Rhine. This unique geographical position explains its cultural diversity and bizarre architectural styles. Perhaps the only place on Earth where you can travel to another country by tram. You’ll have plenty to see and do in Basel’s centre. Visit the market square with its ornate government buildings and Gothic cathedral to soak up history, or one of Basel’s 40 museums to see why it’s a city of arts.
16. Lake Constance
Lake Constance, Bodensee, and the Swabian Sea are all names for this lake in northeastern Switzerland. The 65-kilometer-long lake is Europe’s third-largest. Its size means it washes Switzerland, Germany, and Austria. Outdoor enthusiasts will love the lake’s picture-perfect scenery. Water sports, hiking, roller-skating, and biking attract tourists worldwide. Cruise these azure waters while you’re here.
Seebergsee, in Bern, is smaller than other Swiss lakes. Despite being smaller than its peers, it’s beautiful. This tranquil oasis offers cyclists and backpackers green foothill routes. Picnics, sunbathing, and relaxing are all possible on the lake’s grassy shores. Feel free to dive into the lake and swim around. After that, you can climb steep cliffs to see the Seebergee and surrounding mountains.
Jungfraujoch Mountain is a once-in-a-lifetime trip for mountain lovers. The Jungfraujoch cog railway runs 9 km from Kleine Scheidegg pass. Jungfraujoch station is Europe’s highest at 3454 metres. It offers panoramic views of Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau, as well as the longest Alps glacier. Spiez
Spiez is in Lake Thun’s bay. Summer is when the town is full of greenery and flowers. Spiez is dotted with small, lovely low-rise buildings, unlike many other Swiss cities. Spitz’s natural beauty is reason enough to visit Switzerland. The towering Swiss Alps protect Lake Thun from cool winds. Swiss nature and vineyards complement the blue-ish palette.
This beautiful Swiss region preserves traditional Swiss culture. It’s only 66 square miles, but it’s packed with charm and cultural richness. Protected by surrounding mountains, gorgeous villages dot the rolling hills, and folk music and traditional dancing are still common.
20. The Rhine Falls
The Rhine Falls are Europe’s largest waterfall. These 150-meter-wide, 23-meter-high falls won’t disappoint. Falls between Schaffhausen and Zürich. Neuhausen am Rheinfall has Wörth Castle. Exploring by boat is a great experience. Thank You. Please subscribe like and share.
