Switzerland is a unique destination where visitors can explore four cultures all in one place: German, French, Italian, and Romansh. Switzerland residents lead a sustainable lifestyle and promote their sustainability commitment to all visitors. For example, all Swiss regions are easily accessible by train thanks to Swiss National Railways, which generates 90 percent of its electricity from hydropower.
The country is a global leader in sustainability, ranking #1 internationally in the Environmental Performance Index (EPI). A perfect escape for winter and summer enthusiasts alike, the Alpine mountains cover a whopping 65 percent of the country’s total surface area. From skiing to vast hiking trails and breathtaking walking routes, these scenic treks can be combined with a swim in one of Switzerland’s 1,500 lakes and rivers.
