Best known for its mountains, lakes, banks, watches, cheese and chocolate, Switzerland is a wonderful destination for winter sports enthusiasts and history lovers. Take a walk through the past, along unspoilt cobbled streets in any of the several medieval old town districts (for example in Lucerne, Bern or Zurich), or by visiting the magnificent Chillon or Oberhofen castles. Experience chocolate making in Kilchberg or cheese-making in Gruyères. Marvel at intricate clockwork mechanisms on a watchmaker's workshop tour as may be found in many towns. Watch beautiful scenery go by from the comfort of a train carriage on the Albula/Bernina railway line, stand in awe at the spectacular Rhine Falls or race down the slopes of the iconic Matterhorn. Then relax at the foot of those slopes in the peaceful fresh air of Zermatt.
