Introduction

In Switzerland, a blend of German, French and Italian cultures has translated into an eclectic arts scene, especially when it comes to folk arts, literature and architecture.

But it’s the hiking, climbing, and outdoor adventure that many come here for, even if it's tackling the dangerous Eiger of the Swiss Alps or taking a stroll around Zermatt, a town where combustion engine cars are banned.

Find out why we’ve named the Glacier Express as one of the world’s best train rides, and learn how to participate in the risqué act of nude hiking.
