The beautiful Alpine region has world-class skiing in the winter. Some of Europe’s top museums, like the Ludwig Museum that features an impressive Picasso collection, are located throughout the country. Your trip also isn’t complete without enjoying another great aspect of the country’s culture: its unique, regional beer styles and huge varieties of sausages.
