Switzerland, officially the Swiss Confederation, is a federal parliamentary republic consisting of 26 cantons, with Bern as the seat of the federal authorities. The country is situated in Western and Central Europe, where it is bordered by Germany to the north, France to the west, Italy to the south, and Austria and Liechtenstein to the east.

Switzerland can be a glorious whirlwind trip whether youve packed your hiking boots, snowboard, or just a good book and a pair of sunglasses.

When to go:
The weather in Switzerland makes it an ideal destination throughout the year, and visitors trying to determine the best time to visit Switzerland are encouraged to first decide what it is they wish to see and do while in the country. The ski season lasts from the end of November to early April; while summer (July/August) is the high tourist season. Go in spring if you wish to experience the best of the countryside.
