Switzerland

Switzerland Travel Guide

The convivial wine bar hosts frequent tastings and the occasional art show. Order a glass of Blauburgunder - what the Swiss call Pinot Noir - and settle in on a window banquette for some people-watching.

The museum features a cutting-edge collection of photography, paintings, and design

For a truly otherworldly trip down the slopes, nothing beats full-moon skiing at Diavolezza, the most spectacular of St. Moritz’s five ski areas.

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

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.

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.

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.
