To discover the country of Switzerland, what could be better than a tour by motorhome? Whether you are a fan of mountain, lake or vineyard trips, you can make yourself a checklist of beautiful places to visit!
When it comes to essential visits you will of course find Geneva, an international and cosmopolitan city, with its magnificent old town in which you can admire the St. Pierre Cathedral and stroll along the promenade de la Treille! An hour's drive up Lake Geneva will take you straight to Lausanne, a city with cobbled streets and many museums, that will offer you a breath-taking view of the surrounding mountains. Montreux, also located on the shores of Lake Geneva, will give you a more historical and musical aspect to your trip, one of the most famous jazz festivals in the world taking place every year in the city. Still on the topic of the musical aspect of the city, Deep Purple's classic rock track "Smoke on the Water" also bears witness to a fire that took place at the Montreux casino in 1971. A plaque commemorating this event was inaugurated in the year 2018. A little further north awaits you the stopover of the small town of Fribourg, for a medieval getaway! Still in a medieval style, the capital Bern will be able to impress you with its astonishing architecture and sandstone buildings. Finally, you can visit the city of Zurich, the country's financial hub and largest city. For mountain travel enthusiasts, the Swiss Alps are essential for a successful excursion!
Depending on your reasons for a visit in Switzerland, the most suitable period for a trip may vary. Spring and summer will be more suitable for visiting cities and urban areas around the country, while winter will be a more appropriate period for those who prefer snow-covered mountain panoramas!
