With crisp Alpine views, clockwork cities and crystalline lakes
providing the backdrop for a land of chocolate, cuckoo clocks and
chalets, Switzerland is luxurious charm wrapped in a snowy blanket.
Swiss countryside is dominated by awesome mountains, ski runs and
fresh meadows while the urban picture is one of modernism and
sophistication, of glass offices and Romanesque charm.
Starting in the heart of the Swiss mountains, the Rhine River
tracks through Switzerland, on to Germany and finally coming to an
end in the Netherlands where it runs out into the North Sea. Along
the way in Switzerland, this mighty river winds through
mountainscapes, crop fields and under bridges with the upper
section recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
