Switzerland – TOP 10 Things to do (Part.1)

It was impossible for us to create this blog without telling you a little more about our country. So if you are looking for top things to do while in Switzerland, you found the right place!

Often, we try to visit the world without taking the time to visit our own country. This is the observation we have made… sadly! This is why we will not propose you only one article on our country but several, which will be made according to our new discoveries! This article have opened our eyes on the lack of knowledge of our country. We have therefore decided to visit it as much as possible during the upcoming months!

So, here are our top 10 best things to do in Switzerland:

1. Observing the Jet d’Eau of Geneva

If you land in Geneva, go straight to the lake to observe the wonderful Jet d’Eau. It is a huge fountain that is 140 meters high and the symbol of the city!

Our tips:

  • When in Montreux, going there at the end of the day to enjoy a magnificent sunset is a must.
    Winter is also a great time to go to Montreux to drink mulled wine to warm up during the Christmas Market, which is so cute!
  • Valle Verzasca has become a very popular destination for tourists, so it is better to arrive early to avoid all the people!
  • The best time to visit Lavaux is during Summer or Fall as the colours of the vines are the more beautiful! It is also the best time of the year to enjoy a good glass of wine in a terrace overlooking the Lavaux. Le Deck, for example, is a great spot!
