The mountain is calling: Cycling holidays in Switzerland.
Switzerland offers a firework display of cultural and scenic beauty that can be enjoyed particularly intensively while cycling. The Alps border on Germany in the North, on Austria in the East, on Italy in the South and on France in the West. German, French, Italian and Rhaeto-Romanic are the four official national languages. Zurich and Geneva rank high on the list of towns with the best quality of life while the Swiss view over 74 mountains measuring more than 4.000 metres. The most well-known one abroad is the Matterhorn (4478m) close to Zermatt. In the Bernese Oberland, the Eiger (3970m), the Mnch (4107m) and the Jungfrau (4158m) form a famous triplet. About 1500 lakes can be visited in Switzerland, the biggest one being Lake Geneva followed by Lake Constance. The Rhine River and the Rhone River, both among Europes longest streams, originate from the Gotthard mountain massif. And the Swiss surely know how to enjoy life: Who doesnt know fondue, raclette, rsti or the famous Bircher- muesli? The delicious honey-almond-chocolate called Toblerone has been produced in Bern for more than a hundred years now and is sold into more than 120 countries worldwide! The way to a mans heart is through his stomach, this also applies in Switzerland.
