Switzerland

Switzerland Travel Guide

Rent your skis and poles here before heading for the slopes.

Le Corbusier's last building - a glass-and-steel structure that looks like a Mondrian painting in 3-D - has now been transformed into a museum. Completed after his death in 1965, it's now named after the patron who commissioned it. It houses Le Corbusier's sketches, lithographs, and writings.

Switzerland may be famed for swanky banking, swoony chocolates, and self-winding watches, but thanks to FoxTown, in the town of Mendrisio, it's owed kudos for style too. This outlet mall is crammed with local labels, like underwear icon Hanro, at 50–80 percent off.

Carrying an absurdly large selection of cashmere sweaters, this place is so traditional it's almost trendy.

The Riffelsee Trail, a climb of less than an hour, leads to a clear lake that perfectly reflects the Matterhorn to the southwest.

This gallery, which has satellites in London and New York, represents everyone from sculptor Louise Bourgeois to Swiss video artist Pipilotti Rist.

Shop for ski gear (not to mention clothing from designers like Escada).

Sprüngli serves its iconic hamburger shaped Luxemburgerli. The shop also has one of the best deals in Zurich, 10 truffles for $7.
