ACCESSIBLE SWITZERLAND: WORLD'S BEST TRANSPORT SYSTEM
In some respects, Switzerland is a country designed especially for travelers. For example, it's the only country in the world where virtually any destination—city, tiny farm village, high mountain peak, or tourist attraction—can be reached by public transport. Indeed, besides the heart-stopping Alpine scenery, shimmering lakes, conspicuous cleanliness, chocolate, cheese, and wine, Switzerland's magnificent, punctual, system of trains, postal buses, lake steamers, cable cars, and funiculars, may be its most significant tourist advantage and attraction. In fact, many visitors come just to ride the trains and the lake boats. Of course, for those who would rather get a Switzerland car rental, the country's network of Autobahns and highways is impeccably maintained and extensive; only a few mountain villages such as Zermat, Wengen, and Mürren cannot be reached by auto.
Switzerland: World's Best Hotels
Of crucial concern to many, if not most, travelers is where they sleep and no country offers better top to bottom hotel accommodations than Switzerland. From some of the world's finest resort hotels such as the Beau Rivage Palace in Lausanne and the Interlaken's Victoria Jungfrau, to the tiniest mountain hut, the visitors of Switzerland hotels are assured of cleanliness, comfort, and a healthy breakfast.
Switzerland: Incredibly Accessible on Foot
Another tourism category in which Switzerland leads the way is its incredible system of well-marked and maintained walking and hiking paths. Everywhere, from the highest mountain peak to the tiniest farm village, the traveler sees signs to footpaths and trails. All are marked with an estimated walking time to the destination.
