Presentation : Switzerland

Fresh air, beautiful diverse countryside, Alps pastures. Also well known for the clichés such as cheese, delicious chocolate, the banking world, watches and cuckoo clocks and Heidi and Peter. In total Switzerland numbers 1000 waterfalls and glaciers and about 1600 lakes. Famous lakes include Lake Geneva, The Bodenmeer and Lago maggiore.

The Alps take up sixty percent of the land in Switzerland. Another thirty percent of the countryside is taken up the hilly highlands Mittelland an ten percent by the mid-highlands Jura. It's not surprising to find numerous winter sport areas in a country in which sixty percent of the countryside consists of Alps.

The largest ski area is the 'Portes du Soleil'. This border crossing ski region (France and Switzerland) is considered one of the largest ski regions in the world. The landscape alternates between mountain tops, glaciers, valleys, lakes and passes and Alps villages. The Aletschglacier in Wallisis is really impressive, at 115 km2 the largest glacier in Switzerland and at the same time part of the Unesco World Natural Inheritance. Towns like Bern are well known for their culture and history (historic centre is on the UNESCO world inheritance list), along with Luzern and Geneva.
