Unlimited freedom. Switzerland was born when the good people of Uri, Schwyz and Unterwalden formed an alliance at the Rütli. Here, in Central Switzerland, is the Schöllenen Bridge which made north-south travel across the Gotthard range possible, and here, in 1871, Europe's first cog railroad up to Rigi marked the beginning of tourism as we know it.
Canton Vaud, situated in the Lake Geneva Region, extends from the peaceful Jura Mountains up to the fascinating Vaudoise Alps and along crystal–clear and majestic lakes that blend into the authentic charm of the landscape.
Typical and joyful villages following each other, vineyards as far as the eye can see, a university and medieval city, friendly lakeshores, a lake reflecting an urban yet country landscape at sunset: the Neuchâtel lakeshore is one of Watch Valley gems, a genuine paradise on earth with dolce vita atmosphere.
