Switzerland's cultural delights

23 Entries

Switzerland is a culture-packed hostel destination like no other. It’s a country rich in tradition and brimming with local food, art, music and sport. Walk through Bern’s old town and delight at the cobblestone-paved streets, skyward pointing church spires, shuttered windows and characterful architecture. Browse the many museums of Luzern which are stuffed with world-class paintings, historical artefacts and natural history. Attend the Basel Fasnacht, a Protestant carnival replete with wild outfits, colourful masks and creative floats. Taste some world-renowned Swiss chocolate and cheese as well as delicious local dishes from each region including Hüppen – tube-shaped biscuits filled with chocolate – in Zurich. Visit some of Switzerland’s castles. The magnificent Chillion Castle is one thousand years old and juts out onto Lake Geneva, its stunning location only adding to its beauty.
