Travel to Switzerland

  • Flag
Switzerland conjures up a good cluster of topics: irresistible chocolates, watches, reloaded, and Yodle Heidis (singing traditional Tyrolean), bankers lack a sense of humor, international bureaucracies and an orderly national personality, meticulous and rather bland. But Harry Lime was wrong on more than one way when, in The Third Man, said that five hundred years of Swiss democracy and peace had produced nothing but the cuckoo clock. To begin, it was the Germans who invented this instrument. Second, the Swiss, really smart, have won more Nobel Prizes and registered more patents per capita than any other nation on Earth. The muesli, the insecticide DDT and life insurance may not feed the legend, but where would the rest of us without a bit of Swiss common sense behind us? Switzerland may be neutral but certainly not a dull country. The fusion of ingredients from Germany, France and Italy has formed a robust national culture. In addition, alpine landscapes have enough attractions to invigorate the traveler tired. Switzerland Goethe succinctly characterized as a combination of "monumentality and perfect order." The untamed majesty of the Alps and the neat and orderly precision of Swiss towns prevent Helvetic be as unidimensional as many scholars claim.

In Switzerland you can visit cities like Basel, Bern, Geneva or Zermatt
