Apartments in Switzerland

A holiday apartment in the metropolises of the alpine republic

As Switzerland is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world, the country also has a correspondingly large number of holiday accommodations in all price ranges. If you are looking for a cosy chalet or a modern holiday home, you will find it especially in the large cities of Lugano, St. Gallen, Lucerne, Zurich, Geneva, Lausanne and Basel, where the proximity to historical and cultural sights is particularly great. Bern, the capital city, also boasts a wide range of accommodation in the city centre, from where you can easily reach all the interesting sights on foot or by public transport within a few minutes.

Peace and relaxation at the foot of majestic peaks

You like it a little quieter and would rather pitch your tents in the middle of nature? This is no problem, especially in Switzerland, because the Alpine republic is full of cosy communities where you can choose from numerous holiday homes, often built in the charming rustic wooden style of the region. Some of the best-known holiday resorts that are worth a visit both in summer and winter include Savognin and Bad Ragaz in the canton of Graubünden, Ascona and Bellizona in Ticino, Appenzell and Elm in eastern Switzerland and Crans Montana and Ferret in Valais.

Travelers and Activities

Switzerland for winter sports enthusiasts

In hardly any other country does winter sports play such a major role as in Switzerland. No wonder then that ski tourism is booming in the 20 major ski resorts, from Beils in Graubünden to Zermatt in the Valais. On the more than 4,000 kilometres of slopes, beginners as well as professionals will get their money's worth, especially as there are runs of all levels of difficulty for downhill skiers, snowboarders and tobogganists. If you don't want to go too fast, strap on your cross-country skis and take a lap on the numerous well-prepared cross-country ski runs or go snowshoeing in the fascinating alpine world.

Cycling paradise in the Alps

Switzerland is not only known as a chocolate republic, but also as a cycling country. This is not really surprising either, as the Alps, which make up around 70 percent of Switzerland, offer the backdrop for countless fantastic routes through the country, which is traversed by over 1,600 lakes and countless rugged peaks. While racing cyclists are drawn to challenging pass roads such as the Bernina Pass, the Albuapass or the Sustenpass, which after the ascent entice with rapid descents beyond 100 kilometers per hour, mountain bikers look forward to adrenaline-charged single trails that lead cross-country over hill and dale to the valley. Pleasure cyclists, on the other hand, will find the panoramic routes such as the Rhone Route, the Rhine Route or the particularly attractive Jura Route from Basel to Nyon much quieter.

Things to know

Best travel time

Due to the different climatic regions and the broad spectrum of possible activities, it is worth booking a vacation rental in Switzerland at any time of year. While winter sports enthusiasts are drawn to the ski areas from December to well into April thanks to a snow guarantee at high altitudes, cyclists and hikers can look forward to up to eight hours of sunshine between May and September and temperatures that often exceed 20 degrees Celsius. If you are planning a cultural holiday in one of the major cities, you can book your chalet or vacation rental at any time, especially as there is always something going on in Switzerland.

Regular events

The Swiss calendar of events is packed with numerous highlights. From the traditional carnival and the Engadine ski marathon in March to the "Zürcher Sechseläuten" in April and the literature festival "Würfel Komma Dampf" in Leukerbad in July, the Alpine republic has a lot to offer. Other highlights include the techno party "Streetparade", which attracts half a million ravers to Zurich every year, the "Paleo-Rock-Festival" on Lake Geneva and the comic festival "Fumetto" in Lucerne.

In Switzerland it is prohibited by law to keep guinea pigs individually. The legislator therefore prescribes the keeping of at least two animals.

Visiting CERN

Anyone interested in the big questions of the world should definitely pay a visit to the CERN nuclear research centre. During a two-hour guided tour, you will gain a comprehensive insight into interesting topics such as the history of the Higgs particles, the origin of the universe and other research topics of the European Organization for Nuclear Research.

Rhine Falls of Schaffhausen

Not far from the picturesque old town of Schaffhausen, Vater Rhein plunges a good 20 metres down 150 metres wide before slowly forming the river that flows into Germany shortly after Basel. You can also get particularly close to the spectacle on board one of the numerous excursion boats that cruise as close as possible to the Rhine Falls, giving you unforgettable moments.

Culinary journey from Rösti to Toblerone

The world owes some culinary delights to Switzerland, which are exported all over the world. Rösti, cheese fondue and raclette, however, taste best in Switzerland. It is best to visit one of the small restaurants, where you will experience Swiss cuisine as unadulterated as possible.

A ride on the panorama train

If you would like to experience the breathtaking Alpine panorama up close without having to set off on your own by bike or hiking boots, book a ride on the Bernina Express. On the 144 km stretch between Chur and Tirano you can enjoy the ride in a comfortable panorama car, while countless peaks over 3,000 metres high pass you by.

Experience Bern

When on holiday in Switzerland, it goes without saying that a side trip to the national capital of Berne is a must. Stroll through the old town, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1983, visit the Natural History Museum or walk in the footsteps of probably the most brilliant scientist the world has ever produced in the Einsteinhaus.
