It is not easy to create a ranking with the most beautiful cities in a country like Switzerland. I would include 20 or 25 to not leave out any, but I understand that one cannot design a route with so many destinations and I wanted to narrow the list to a total of 7 locations that are beautiful. Do you want to meet them? Keep reading!
It is the largest city in Switzerland with more than 400,000 inhabitants. Mix modern buildings with historical buildings, such as the Zurich Opera House. In addition, when it comes to eating well there is no problem, since it has several Michelin-starred restaurants. Of course, prepare to pay a lot of money, since it is one of the most expensive European cities to live.
You are required to go through Lucerne if you travel to Switzerland. There, between mountains, live about 80,000 people who are aware of the natural attraction that surrounds them, because in addition to mountains you can also see lakes of a indescribable beauty. You will be able to see the city from various viewpoints, so good photographs are guaranteed.
Switzerland's capital is not a particularly large city. We are talking about some 135,000 inhabitants who are used to walking among buildings that are hundreds of years old and are in very good condition. And that's not to mention the good atmosphere that is breathed thanks to the bars, shops and restaurants that one finds without having to search.
This city is very close to the border that separates Switzerland from France and Germany. his medieval old town It is a true wonder, the same can be said of its Gothic-style cathedral built in the 12th century, from which the city can be seen from a privileged location. Those who love culture and art enjoy Basel, as there are numerous museums and galleries.
Also close to the French border, Geneva is known for being a business-minded city. Cosmopolitan and luxurious, is known for being the headquarters of the United Nations and the International Red Cross. It is ideal for lovers of fashion and culture, as well as being the cradle of the best watches on the planet.
Some 140,000 people live in Lausanne, a city on the banks of the Leman River. There it is easy to feel young both during the day and at night, since entertainment is one of the priorities around the lake lausanne. Its old town, clearly influenced by the Gothic currents, houses museums that are worth visiting.
I could not leave out this city, which is obviously the least known of all the ones I mention in this article. It is the smallest (barely reaches 45,000 inhabitants) but it has an attraction that makes it highly recommend it to you. It is located on the shores of Lake Thun, surrounded by mountains. That makes it very close to what they look like the most beautiful villages in Switzerland. Have a castle that presides over the city, old buildings flirting with the Aare river and a promenade to enjoy the outdoors, either walking quietly or having a coffee on a terrace.
