THE PLACE FOR AN IDYLLIC ESCAPE
Natural wonders meet urban sophistication in Switzerland, making it a prime destination for luxury travel. Switzerland is known for its spectacular beauty, dedication to superior craftsmanship—and of course, chocolate and cheese. Spend a warm summer day aboard a private boat at one of the many lake towns like Lucerne, where shimmering waters reflect craggy mountain peaks and modern amenities combine with old-world charm. In the colder months, take to the slopes at world-class ski resorts like Zermatt (where you’ll enjoy views of the iconic Matterhorn) and Verbier, then enjoy a warm apres-ski beverage in premium surroundings.
For a magical experience any time of year, take a train ride. Switzerland’s noteworthy rail system delights visitors with some of the most scenic rail journeys in existence. Sit back and bask in the undeniably impressive views of waterfalls and the snow-capped Swiss Alps, while traversing impossibly steep peaks. Many routes include stops at quaint towns like Zermatt, where you can savor the flavors of fondue and wander between the small bars and restaurants on car-free streets. For a chic shopping experience, head to Zurich, where you’ll find the full range of Swiss watch brands—including Rolex, Tag Heuer, and Omega—on display. Travel along the cobbled streets exploring the many boutiques, then take a break to drink in the majestic atmosphere while sampling one (or seven) of the fine chocolates for which Switzerland is known.
