Visit Switzerland | Happiest Country In the World

Switzerland is a mountainous country in Central Europe that is considered to be the happiest country in the world. The citizens there care about civic duty, being physically active, and are tough on crime. They also have the most beautiful mountains in Europe, medieval remnants, the Alps, ski resorts, and hiking trails. The entire country shares awesome tourist attractions, and who can forget the chocolate, and Swiss made watches.

Switzerland’s mountains span the entire country and are great to ski. A beautiful, super tall mountain that is open for tourism is the Matterhorn in Zermatt. The mountain lies on the border of Switzerland and Italy, at 14,700 feet high. Private tours to the top include cable car rides, and glacier views. Mount Pilatus also makes for great mountain views, forest camping, boat trips, cuisine, and railway rides that reach almost a vertical position on the way to the top.

For the music fan in you, know that Switzerland hosts around 300 music festivals every year. You may have heard of the ever popular Montreux Jazz Festival that has hosted music greats like Marvin Gaye, Earth Wind & Fire, Aretha Franklin, Carole King, David Sanborn, and newer artists like Sam Smith, A$AP Rocky, and also Lady Gaga. Other music festivals include the Lucerne Festival, and Nyon’s Paleo Festival that are just perfect for the music loving traveler.

To explore the waters of Switzerland, rent a paddleboat at Lake Zurich. Many lakes there offer these “pedalos” that let you get up close and personal with attractions around the city coast. If you want a more leisurely way to explore Swiss waters, row, speed, and sailboats are available for rent or tour. For some activity on frozen water, visit the city’s frozen lakes or selection of ice rinks in Interlaken, St Moritz Bad, Zurich and Lausanne to name a few.

These are just a few of the activities that can keep you occupied in a fun way in Switzerland. You can also enjoy contemporary art in Gruyeres, enjoy the best cheeses in Fribourg, have wine on the coast of Lake Geneva, and definitely enjoy the world’s finest chocolates.  One visit here and you will see just what makes Switzerland the happiest country in the world.
