Geneva brings the world to one small city with a huge expat population and the highest number of international organizations in any one city.
Step out of the city life by going to Creux du Van and Lavaux Vineyard Terraces. Chateau de Chillon and Cathedrale de St-Pierre will appeal to history buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Geneva: Roman Columns (in Nyon), Chaplin's World (in Corsier-sur-Vevey) and Lausanne (Collection de l'Art Brut & The Olympic Museum Lausanne (Musee Olympique)). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Patek Philippe Museum, look for gifts at DAVIDOFF Geneve, and admire the local landmark of The Geneva Water Fountain.

Nestled between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz in the heart of the Jungfrau region, Interlaken became popular for its proximity to the mountains and lakes of the Bernese Oberland region.

Venture out of the city with trips to Molitor (in Wengen) and The Matterhorn (in Zermatt). There's lots more to do: take a memorable tour with Tours, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Harderkulm, fly down the slopes at Maennlichen, and explore the striking landscape at Aletsch Glacier.
