“A balance of infectious enthusiasm and solid practicality”” – Michael Palin

About this book

Switzerland is famous for its alpine resorts, from the A-listers' favorite St. Moritz, to the tiny spa town of Scuol, but this small country has much more to offer: cosmopolitan cities, beautiful lakes, attractive villages, and an abundance of largely unspoiled scenery.

Covering every region, this book helps readers understand the extraordinary history of Switzerland and take a street-by-street tour of the delightful cities of Basel, Bern, Geneva, Lausanne, Luzern, and Zrich. Maps. Full-color photos.

- Features the very best of every region—food, festivals, history, art and architecture

- Combines uniquely detailed cultural background with discerning advice on everything from where to rent mountain attire in alpine villages to magnificent museums

- Comprehensive coverage including major cities from Basel to Zürich, but also small picturesque towns from Ascona to Thun

- Tour the famous alpine resorts of the Bernese Oberland, Central Switzerland and the fabled Valais resorts of Zermatt and Saas-Fee.  

- Get off the beaten track and discover hidden gems such as the stunningly beautiful Centovalli; Gruyeres and its cheese; Lötschental, with its fascinating traditions; curious tax-free Samnaun and the pretty, cultural Val d’Anniviers

- Understand the extraordinary history and take a street-by-street tour of the delightful cities of Basel, Bern, Geneva, Lausanne, Luzern and Zürich
