As small as Switzerland is, as a travel destination the Alpine republic is simply magnificent. Snow-covered four-thousand-metre peaks, green alpine pastures, palm-fringed lakeshores and an excellent infrastructure make it easy to find the perfect relaxation in Switzerland. The Romantik Hotels & Restaurants establishments are scattered throughout the country - for example in the Bernese Oberland, Graubünden, Ticino and Valais. Switzerland's country hotels are as typical as the regions in which they are located: Check into an original Engadine manor house, an Emmental Baroque inn or a centuries-old property with a sun-baked, dark wooden façade. In any case, the prospects for a relaxing holiday are excellent - and not only if you choose a room with a view of the Matterhorn.
Switzerland is a year-round destination. Many ski slopes are guaranteed snow until spring, and in glacier regions such as Valais you can put on your skis even in high summer. The south of Switzerland, on the other hand, has a Mediterranean climate with subtropical vegetation - here you can unpack your swimming trunks as early as May. The possibilities for exploring the grandiose nature are almost unlimited - and Swiss country hotels are always right in the middle of it. Right on the doorstep of your country hotel in Switzerland, hiking trails (and mountain railways) await to take you to "rustic" huts and fantastic vantage points. Or even to the nearest alpine cheese dairy or a crystal-clear mountain lake. Do you like it sporty? Then get on your mountain bike or swing your golf club, and if there is a larger lake nearby, there is always the possibility of a sailing trip. Then relax in the hotel spa, for example in the herbal sauna, the sweat lodge or in the hay bath.
Switzerland is a multilingual country - you will also feel this when eating. Depending on the region, the French, Italian or German influence is greater, plus genuinely Swiss specialities such as fondue and raclette. Enjoy classics of French cuisine, homemade pasta and, above all, regional delicacies such as cheese, Simmental beef and wine from the vineyards on Lake Geneva or Lake Neuchâtel.
