Almost every adventure buff has Switzerland on their list of must-see places in the world. With its staggering landscapes capped by the Alps to the quaint pocket of a cosmopolitan lifestyle, there is a lot to see in this European country.
Alpenwild.com and other travel experts list some places you may want to put in your itinerary when creating walking tours in Switzerland.
A compromise between a town and the great outdoors, Lucerne is a must-see. The Old Town has the most beautiful landscape from which one can see Mount Rigi and Mount Pilatus, as reported by Smithsonian Mag. There is also a lot to see when walking around the car-free area, from the Vierwaldstättersee dock to the historical Chapel Bridge. A day is not enough to enjoy all of this beauty.
Europe’s largest waterfall is not just the perfect place to see a majestic vision; it is also the best adventure destination for adrenaline junkies. Located in the northern area of Switzerland, the Rhine Falls roars near Schaffhausen town. Expatica reported that those who want a rather safe view could go to the viewing decks. There are also rentable canoes for those who want to brave the waters and see the nearby castles up close.
Known to be one of the biggest lakes in Western Europe, Lake Geneva is a must-visit and must-experience for any walking tour in Switzerland. The clear lake is surrounded by Geneva and Lausanne, so it is referred to as Lac Leman by the French who live in the area. According to Lonely Planet, a good path to go through would be the trail from Geneva to Montreux. This will also pass by the vineyards in Lavaux and end up in the busy area of Lausanne.
Whether you are an extreme adventure enthusiast or an excited explorer off to a new adventure, Switzerland offers a lot of sights to fulfil your bucket list.
