Sightseeing

You haven’t seen Switzerlandif you haven’t managed some historic snapshots of the omnipresent Swiss cow with its trademark bell. In other words, if “sightseeing” is your thing, you’ve got to camp out in places like Luzern or Lugano and enjoy the green meadows and the natural beauty to get a taste of the rustic splendor of the country.

Luzern, Geneva and Lugano have the most breathtaking bodies of water in the continent and certainly merit a day or two of strolling along the banks of the lakes. The most visited area in Switzerland is Interlaken which is surrounded by unparalleled natural beauty and is a hit with the adventure seeking backpacker, as the nearby mountains have some of the best hiking trails in the world.

Any holiday would be incomplete sans a visit to the famous museums, churches, mansions and universities of Geneva and Zurich . Architectural wonders compete for space and attention in these cosmopolitan centres, and you will find more than enough for those rolls of film that you can’t wait to use up. The Chateau de Chillon near Montreux is a 13th century fortress not to be missed and if you happen to be here in early July and just happen to love jazz then be sure you make it to the famous Montreux Jazz Festival.

The ski resort of Zermatt is home to the towering Matterhorn and tourists flock here to get a glimpse of this magnificent peak.

The quintessential excursion to the cheese makers’ or to the local clock shop, to find out the manufacturing secrets of the Swiss, would also be something worth keeping in mind.

Shopping

The world famous Lindt chocolates will beckon you throughout your trip, the gruyere, emmentaler or vacherin will tickle your palette and the sleek Rolexes will make you swoon. Prices, no doubt, will reflect the world class quality and durability of these products. So make a lifetime investment in a gold watch if you like. Those who don’t feel like the Sultan of B himself needn’t despair: inexpensive and delightful souvenirs and goodies in street shops will give you something to show for the trip.
Other items of purchase in Switzerland include pottery, crystal, embroidered items, wood carvings, clocks (including cuckoos), Swiss army knives, liquors (Williamine, the best thing that can be done with a pear), lace, textiles, folklore souvenirs (such as music boxes), cowbells, cheese, antiques, stainless-steel cutlery, ski equipment and clothing, leather goods and shoes.

The shopping hours inSwitzerland are from8:30 am –noon and1:30 – 6:00 pm on Mondays – Fridays and8:00 am – 8:00 pm on Saturdays.

Eating Joints

Dining options range from luxury establishments to modest cafes, stubli (tavern cafes), and restaurants specializing in local cuisine. If you’re staying in a resort, you can normally use the half pension plan, which includes a simple, hot meal in the room rate.

Mealtimes: the main Swiss meal of the day is lunch, followed by light evening snacks.

The average meal price per person, including tips and tax – but minus beverages – would be roughly 30SF to 50SF in one of the metros like Geneva or Zurich. The same in a smaller place like Luzerne or Lugano would cost about 20SF -35SF at the local restaurant.

In bigger cities likeZurich andGeneva night life centers around cafes along the lakeside where street performers put up their acts on summer nights.. Jazz is popular and jazz festivals are held periodically. If it is something more serious you are looking for catch a play or a music concert. Weekly listings of concerts and performances are available at the local Tourist Information booths around the cities.
