For our money, this is Switzerland's number one showcase. High, slender waterfalls cascade in long, silvery ribbons straight down its green flanks. Quaint, traffic-free villages perch above it on grassy shelves, and towering over all are the famed mountain peaks Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau. Some of the world's most breathtaking scenery.
