Geneva

Geneva is well-known for its magnificent lake and Jet d’Eau, clean lush parks, the picturesque Old Town, high-end shopping, palace hotels and exclusive dining. Luxury watchmaking and fine chocolatiers are also popular attractions for many tourists. Apart from that, Geneva is one of the capitals of the United Nations, with a long history of international peace-making. But did you know that immediately outside of Geneva there’s a beautiful countryside, full of vineyards, farms, and authentic villages with nice traditions? There you can experience everything from a vintage car rallye, advanced cheese and wine tastings with local experts, long hiking tours, and loads of nature activities like canyoning, rafting, or canoeing on the River Rhône. If you’re looking for a quieter activity, a great alternative is building your very own watch in a traditional workshop, under the training and supervision of an experienced watchmaker during an entire day. Then you get to keep the watch you assembled of course…

Zurich

The cosmopolitan city by the water combines creative urban life with nature. There’s activity day and night with countless events, diverse museums, and Switzerland’s most vibrant nightlife. And you can be in the Swiss mountains in less than an hour. Zurich has for years ranked among the world’s top cities in terms of quality of life. It is a boutique city that offers everything that implies, in a small and exquisite format. It is avant-garde: it was home to Dada, the Freitag bag and the world-renowned Helvetica typeface. Researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and companies such as Google and Disney Research produce many innovations. Zurich hosts the Swiss National Bank along with the world-famous Bahnhofstrasse, one of the most luxurious shopping strips around. People there do their utmost to embrace trends immediately. The city has one of the highest numbers of Michelin-starred restaurants per inhabitant in Europe. The city’s rustic pubs, street food festivals and pop-up restaurants in empty factories are also highly popular. All the city’s culinary offerings can be sampled at the annual FOOD ZURICH festival.

Lucerne

Lucerne, in central Switzerland on Lake Lucerne, has an impressive mountainous panorama. It offers many attractions, great shopping, a beautiful lakeside setting, and nearby excursion mountains. The medieval Chapel Bridge in the center of Lucerne is considered to be one of the oldest wooden and painted bridges in Europe. Historic houses decorated with frescoes line the picturesque town squares. The town has also earned a reputation for itself with innovative design. The futuristic Culture and Convention Centre (KKL), designed by leading French architect Jean Nouvel, is one of the architectural highlights. A trip up one of Lucerne’s regional mountains, the Pilatus or the Rigi – the queen of mountains – is a must. A steamship cruise on Lake Lucerne with its many bends and arms is also very nice. The Gotthard Panorama Express takes its passengers to the foot of the Gotthard pass via Lake Lucerne and then continues by rail into Ticino, south of the Alpine ridge. The «cherry road» leads from Lucerne through the landscape of cheery trees and kirsch.
