Switzerland: holidays in a dream setting. Switzerland is a 41,285 square kilometers vacation paradise with the most beautiful mountains in the Alps. You are always welcome to Switzerland to ski and hike. We can recommend you to rent either an apartment or a summer house in Switzerland as there are many vacation rental offers here. Besides, it is more pleasant to awake high in the mountains in a warm and cozy vacation home that in a hotel room. Besides, it is a good opportunity for romantics to enjoy the sunset and sunrises.
The highest mountains of Switzerland can be found in the Valais Alps. Mount Dufour is the highest one as it is 4,634 m. However, this mountain partially belongs to Switzerland. The highest entirely Swiss mountain is Dom. It is located between Zermatt and Saas Fee and it is 4,545m high. But the most famous mountain all over Switzerland is mount Matterhorn. It is situated in the Alps and its hight is 4,478 m. Besides, it has a very distinctive shape. Matterhorn is located to the south of Zermatt, one of the most famous places in the Alps.
However, there is a very dangerous mountain in Switzerland, too. It is mount Eiger. The Eiger north slope is prominent all over the world as there has always been many human tragedies as well as the views of this mount in great movie scenes. Eiger, Moench and Jungfrau form the world famous triumvirate of the Bernese Oberland. At the foot of the Eiger Glacier you will find the village of Grindelwald. It is a well-known tourist destination that is popular not only in winter but in any other season. Besides, the Alps and Switzerland is a dream backdrop for a great holiday all year round.
