A collection of 5 beautiful `laces in Switzerland, the heart and top of Europe. All pictures shot by myself.
Did you know that Switzerland has 4 national languages? Next to german, romansch and french italian is one of them and primarily spoken in the canton of ticino, the warmest, sunniest canton of all. Palms and italian mansions decorate the lakeside of Lago Maggiore and Lago di Lugano, the two main lakes in Ticino. Taking a swim at Switzerlands beaches, renting a boat and going on a cruise, hiking up San Salvatore or eating Pizza and Pasta at the harbour of Ascona are an absolute dream and real MUSTs.
While Nid- and Obwalden might not be the most visited region of Switzerland, they sure have a lot to offer. Situated at the shore of the Vierwaldstättersee, not far away from Lucerne, the mountains rise up steep to the Klewenalp, which has a cable car connection from Emmetten. From here magnificient sunsets can be watched, opzionally with a typical swiss picnic like Raclette or Cervelat over the grill. Don't forget to take warm clothes though, as it can still get quite chill after sundown!
Zürich is not only the biggest city in Switzerland, but probably also the livliest. Every visitor can find what suits to him or her here, fom fancy 3 Michelin Star restaurants to vegan Currywurst or traditional Raclette and Fondue. Although quite expensive (as Switzerland typically is), the Langgasse also offers a vibrant nightlife. Hip cafés, bars and clubs can be found everywhere in the inner city, welcoming everyone from anywhere in the world.
Interlaken is the central location of the Berner Oberland, a magnigicient mountain area in the heart of Switzerland situated between two cristal clear lakes. Surrounded by mountains with tons of opportunity it is a lively small town. Especially outdoor sports fanatics will find their Adrenaline rush here.
4000m snow covered peaks, glaciers and incredible views from more the Jungfraujoch (Top of Europe) make Grindelwald and the surrounding area a MUST in Winter. It has everything for all kinds of people, be it snow sport enthusiasts, paragliders, ice skaters, gourmets, party animals or romantics.
For anybody interested in exploring hidden nature Mauritius is a Must. Although only a small percentage of its forests remains endemic, it is absolutely stunning to see flora and fauna found nowhere else on the planet due to its isolated island location. The underwater world is just as stunning and it is no rarity to see dolphins next to you while swimming, snorkling or diving.
