It's all about the mountains in Switzerland - I find the large cities uninteresting. Ride the wonderful Swiss trains - spectacular scenery and up-to-the-second accuracy. The small ski resorts are especially nice, and try to stay on a Swiss farm. What I like about this country is the understated wealth (unlike Germany, where ostentation is the norm, the Swiss do things simply, but very well). I think the German-speaking areas are more beautiful - probably because of the Bavarian-style, gingerbread architecture.

Actually, Swiss-German sounds considerably less harsh than the German language, but more and more English is the one used.

Hello :)

When I went a couple years ago, we stayed in small town called Interlaken. Extremely beautiful and tons of outdoor activities to do. See http://www.balmers.com/en/activities/summer.html

We did the 450ft bungee and the hardest canyoning run. These things are pretty expensive, but they are amazing and I'll never forget them. The bungee jump is off of a gondola, between two mountains over a lake. Absolutely stunning (yes it is scary but worth it :)).

Have a great time!
