Even though Switzerland is renowned for its incredibly stable economy, and as the headquarters of the diplomatic world, it has so much to offer to travelers from all walks of life. No matter what you’re into, we guarantee you’ll find it in Switzerland. Without further ado, here are our 5 reasons why you should choose Switzerland this winter:
Besides from it being incredible when it comes to winter sports in general, Switzerland is highly capable of producing amazing modern architecture. Every once in a while a new building rises from the ashes, looking like something no one could have ever imagined. Apart from staying in touch with modern ways of design and architecture, there is plenty of authentic old buildings to gaze upon. Zurich is one of the prettiest places you are ever going to visit (architecture-wise), and we strongly advise you to set aside a couple of days of your trip to go and see it.
Switzerland is a country with numerous ski resorts. There are a lot of mountains to choose from, like Matterhorn, Jungfrau, the Eiger, etc. What Switzerland promises are great snow conditions, a lot of glacier skiing, and high altitudes. Let’s state a few facts:
– Switzerland has the Europe’s biggest glacier
– Europe’s highest railway station
– 57 4,000 meter peaks
– and many more…
Wherever you end up in Switzerland, expect to find hospitality, well preserved nature, and absolutely extraordinary skiing experiences.
Welcome to the fairytale. Jungfraujoch is the highest point in Europe packed with ski pistes to die for. However, the best thing of them all is that there are a few restaurants at the summit, which provide you with a completely dreamy dining experience. Transportation shouldn’t be a problem, which means that you can reach the peak by rail.
Apart from its authentic and colorful architecture, Zurich is a place that can satisfy everyone’s needs. There are plenty museum to visit, concerts to listen to, hikes to take, and of course, a ton of cheese to eat. The Alps are one of the biggest skiing attractions in the world, and while you are in Zurich, you must not pass on them.

In case you’re fine with low temperatures, going ice diving in Switzerland will be one of the most amazing experiences of your life. Lake Lioson located in Les Mosses is a mesmerizing location for ice diving.
