Scenic Destinations in Switzerland

The magic of Switzerland never fails to enthrall visitors. From Lord Byron to Alexandre Dumas, the scenic destinations have inspired many poets, playwrights, and artists. The Switzerland scenic destinations are a paradise for nature lovers and the romantic at heart, offering many idyllic getaways to honeymooners and poets.

Almost all the major cities of Switzerland are set around a mountain or a lake, which in itself is enough to lend a natural charm to the place. Tour the splendid Alps near Interlaken on the toy train, or enjoy the majesty of these scenic destinations on a scenic rail journey in Switzerland. At Interlaken, you will be able to start a tour of the Bernese Oberland, one the most picturesque places in Switzerland. Visit the Thun Lake, a spot popular with couples and picnic lovers. When you take a funicular ride to the Jungfraujoch, you will be rewarded with a panoramic view of the surrounding area, the green valleys and the fir trees that are so reminiscent of Heidi’s home in the book by Johanna Spyri.

In the Engadin region, you will find many scenic destinations that offer a remarkable contrast to the icy, sometimes intimidating, majesty of the Alps. The light mountain breezes and the sharp sunshine are invigorating and a welcome change from the chilly winds on the Alps. St. Moritz is situated in Engandin. The blue lakes surrounded by tall fir trees offer you a chance to just stay in the lap of nature for a few hours and forget the drudgery of life.

The Valais region also has some of the most scenic destinations of Switzerland. Hot springs, ice caverns, and the scenic rail journey add to the charm of your Switzerland tour. The lush meadows where peasants can be seen at work are part of the typical Valais landscape.

In the Ticino district near Italy’s border, you will experience the Mediterranean charms of the vineyards, the lakes and the cities of Lugano and Locarno. The Lake Maggiore and the Lake Lugano are ideal for that much awaited lake cruise in Switzerland. The fruit orchards, with boughs bowed down under the weight of fragrant fruits, add to the charm of your tour of the scenic destinations in Switzerland.
