Switzerland is a haven for winter sports enthusiasts, summer hikers, culture lovers and partygoers! It borders France in the west, Germany in the north, Austria and the principality of Liechtenstein in the east and Italy in the south. The diversity of the landlocked, mountainous country with four national languages as well as three types of landscape (the Swiss Alps, The hilly Swiss Mittellland, and the Swiss Jura) is the essence of Switzerland. It gives the country its unique identity. Zurich, the cultural capital, offers an intriguing old town and a rich array of galleries. Lucerne (Luzern) is a picturesque place set among mountains and lakes. Basel (Basle) is famous for its architecture. The peaks of the Visp Region in the Valais Canton are staggeringly beautiful. HI has a wide choice of accommodation in Switzerland and even provides lodgings in many of the most exclusive skiing areas.
