Most international tourists who arrive in Switzerland arrive in Zurich where the main international airport is located. Now Zurich is not the capital of Switzerland as many people believe but it is the largest city. 

Bern is the capital of Switzerland. Zurich is the original Swiss town located on the banks of lake Zurich, at the mouth of the Limmat River, with mountain views. Today, Zurich has grown into one of the financial centres of the northern hemisphere with one million people living there. 

German is the official language but many people will understand English, French, and sometimes Italian as well. Switzerland has famous watches, chocolate, cheese, and Swiss Army knives. Read this article to know more about  self guided hiking tours Switzerland.

As a result of the large numbers of overseas visitors arriving every day there are many international standard hotels available to choose from. Most visitors choose to stay in the central business district or in the lakeside areas which are located adjacent to the city.

These areas have a huge selection of excellent restaurants. Another place to stay is near Zurich airport as the accommodation is less expensive and only a short train ride from the city centre.

No visit to Switzerland would be complete without visiting Lake Lucerne, Switzerland's premier lakeside town and tourist hotspot. With such picturesque mountain and lake views, Lucerne is always popular with tourists and is an included stopover on many European coach holidays. 

The area offers beautiful vistas, great shopping, dining, luxury hotel accommodation and many tourist attractions at numerous mountain resorts. Lucerne is the gateway to Central Switzerland with all its marvellous alpine scenery.
