Today we present a new destination in TravelEchoes: western Switzerland. A destination for nature lovers but also for lovers of fairy- tale villages. Among the cities we recommend Geneva, Lausanne, and especially Bern and Fribourg, with exceptional old towns. Solothurn, Thun, St-Ursanne, Montreux and Chillon Castle, are other exceptionally picturesque villages.

 

As for natural wonders there is an endless catalog: from the peaks in the Bernese Oberland, which include Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau to another mythical mountain in the Valais such as the Matterhorn.  Besides you can visit picturesque valleys as the Lötschental and Lauterbrunnen Valley and also the Aletsch glacier, the largest in Europe. Amazing lakes as the Oechinensee and mountain passes offering great panoramas such as the Furkapass or Grimselpass are also another point of interest. In short, a paradise for nature lovers, perfectly conditioned by a dense network of spectacular mountain railways – like the ones in Zermatt or the Jungfraujoch, the highest railway station in Europe – and cableways – such as the ones accessing the Mont Fort or to Niessen -. More than 120 destinations that you can enjoy from now on in our app.
