Thinking of heading to Switzerland, one of the happiest nations in the whole world? Here are some of the things that await visitors here.
Paddle Your Way to Lake Zurich
One can always go to the vantage point at Felsenegg to have an amazing view, but the best way to enjoy it is to go active and hit the waters. You can work out as you lay eyes on the view aboard a paddle boat that is available in many areas around the lake. Rowboats and speedboats are also available for rent but the slow paddle boats let you appreciate the view much better.
Visit Chaplin's World
After the world-famous actor Charlie Chaplin left the United States, he settled down in the Manoir de Ban overlooking Lake Geneva in Corsier-sur-Vevey. His estate was turned into a museum in 2016 that features multimedia displays, selected clips from Chaplin's films, recreations of film sets, family photos, and other memorable records, as per Lonely Planet. After walking the memory lane inside the museum, you can take some pictures to the beautiful gardens of the mansion.
Take A Stroll in Gurtenbahn Railway
When you visit Bern, the country's capital, you would not want to miss the Gurtenbahn funicular located at south of the city. The tour links Wabern to the summit of a low mountain called Gurten. The journey will let you see the view overlooking the city of Bern, and there are also biking and hiking trains in the mountain that will be friendly to any hikers or bikers of all ages.
Dive in the Aare River
If you want to cool off but do not have enough cash for a luxurious bath, the outdoor baths at Marzili is the perfect place for you. The bath, where you can stay as long as you want, is absolutely free of charge, as stated by Timeout. You can start upstream and let the current carry you or hop on a raft for a change of pace to see the sights around the city.
Venture To Medieval Castles in Bellinzona
Bellinzona is home to beautiful medieval castles. The castles are declared as UNESCO World Heritage Sites since 2000 and some of them are turned into museums. Check out Castelgrande (which is now home to an archaeological museum), the Castello di Sasso Corbaro, and Castello di Montebello. Moreover, the town of Bellinzona has always been an important geographic location in the Alps ever since the time of the Romans.
