I’ve been to various areas of Switzerland in the past 8 years to tour and adventure around. From everything between skiing in the Swiss Alps on a glacier in Interlaken, to boating around Zurich, to the top of Mt. Pilatus in Lucerne, I have done my fair share of Switzerland trips! I’m excited to share with you my favorites and what to do in each location while visiting this stunning country! Find out how to do a full country Switzerland tour here.

Swiss Franc. The Swiss Franc is close to equal to the USD. Don’t forget to exchange for Swiss Franc’s at the ATMs in the airport when you arrive!
Locals speak lots of languages in Switzerland as their main language – German, French and Italian, depending on which region they live in! In my experience to various cities, everyone spoke English perfectly so no need to worry!
Other Tips When Visiting Switzerland
- For all of my travel/packing essentials I bring on any trip compiled together, head to my influencer page on Amazon here for a complete list or my descriptive carry-on packing guide here or my favorite travel gear here!
- Travel Insurance: When visiting Switzerland, I highly recommend getting travel insurance. You never know what may happen to your flights, a death/personal emergency in your family, or an accident happening while traveling (think: getting mugged, falling while hiking and spraining your ankle, literally any accident than can happen ANYWHERE!). World Nomads makes it super easy and I never leave for a trip without getting their insurance. Most importantly it’s extremely affordable: get your World Nomads travel insurance before your trip here!
