Europe Switzerland

See why Switzerland is the most beautiful place in the world

October 27, 2016

It’s no big secret that I adore Switzerland, maybe even more than my own native country (but don’t tell my fellow Canadians that!) Mountain ranges, skiing, villages that look like they haven’t changed a bit since the 1800s, chocolate, Bern, a hodgepodge of languages, fondue, the rail system, cobblestones, fresh air, and being able to avoid human contact are some of the reasons I love Switzerland as much as I do.

Are you not sold yet on the idea of the great Swiss country? Allow these photos to convince you otherwise.

The Matterhorn peak towers above Zermatt, on a blue sunny beautiful day in Switzerland.

Are you convinced yet, looking at the Matterhorn’s jagged beauty?

The picturesque vinyards of the Valais region in Switzerland border Lake Geneva and feature mountains, rolling hills, and small villages

How about now, staring at the lush green vinyards?

The characteristic architecture of Bern against a lush backdrop of trees and greenery

What about now, seeing Bern from above?

An empty street in Bern with cobblestones, cars, and classic architecture

Looking at this beautiful empty street, are you convinced?

A sailboat in Lake Geneva near Lausanne, against a mountainous cloudy backdrop

Are you imagining yourself in this sailboat on Lake Geneva?

Snowcapped mountain peaks shrouded with clouds near the Jungfrau in Interlaken, Switzerland

Or climbing the Jungfrau, high above the clouds?

A ship temporarily housing the Olympic Museum in Lausanne is docked in the calm blue waters of Lake Geneva, against a backdrop of blue skies and mountains

Do you feel like visiting the Olympic Museum now?

Rolling green hills dotted with homes, trees, and mountains shrouded with mist on the way up to the Jungfrau in Interlaken, Switzerland

Or what about herding sheep and living a rustic life in these beautiful foothills?

The Chateau d"Yvoire, a French castle situated on the shores of Lake Geneva, as seen from afar

Maybe gazing at the Chateau d’Yvoire will convince you that Switzerland is the most perfect country.

    Switzerland looks so amazing. I especially like the high perspectives where you have the green hills and occassional buildings in the valleys. Do you recommend hiring a car to get around? And did you find it a really expensive place to visit?

      Hey, Mike, thanks for the comment! I wouldn’t really recommend renting a car in Switzerland as there is a great rail system already, parking might be difficult to find and expensive in some cities, and there are some really nice villages, especially around Interlaken where cars aren’t allowed. The country tends to be a little pricey, but I’d say it’s definitely not the most expensive place I’ve visited, especially if you are able to find cheaper accommodations
