There’s a lot more to Switzerland than just clocks, chocolate and cheese, as you’ll quickly discover when you travel to this gorgeous country with Qatar Airways. Featuring a cosmopolitan spark, this country boasts an excellent transportation system on one end and a magnificent backdrop of mountains and lakes.
Just like its famous dark chocolate, Switzerland is a rich and luxurious country. It possesses picture-perfect beauty that has drawn visitors to this mountainous country for hundreds of years. Along with the cultural attractions of cities like Zurich and Bern there are wonderful opportunities for enjoying a range of outdoor sports. People from all over the world visit the country for hiking, skiing, paragliding and many other outdoor pursuits. Whether it’s unwinding in Zermatt or celebrity-spotting in St. Moritz, there’s always something to do here, be it summer or winter.
When you’re not visiting natural wonders like the Aletsch Glacier or the Monte Rosa Massif, explore exquisite cities such as Berne and Geneva, where you are sure to enjoy sightseeing and café society. Lake Geneva, Lausanne and Montreux are all popular destinations on the Swiss tourist trail and full of interesting museums, art galleries and shopping opportunities. Bern Old Town for example is famous for its retro cellar-shops and colourful candies, and is perfect for an afternoon’s stroll.
While Switzerland is renowned for its centuries-old neutral position in conflicts, when it comes to economics, the country remains a key player and one of the most important financial centres of Europe, with many banks headquartered in Zurich. Business travellers are attracted by the strong economy and excellent financial infrastructures.
With four official languages, the country is a classic example of a multi-cultural hub – this also means that you’ll have no trouble communicating with the locals—with English commonly spoken by most residents. Fly to Switzerland with Qatar Airways and embark on a multi-faceted trip across one of Europe’s most robust countries.
