The diverse vacation region between Lake Walen and Sarganser Land in Eastern Switzerland gets its name from Johanna Spyri’s world famous Heidi story. Well-known destinations include the skiing and hiking regions of Flumserberg and Pizon as well as the thermal, wellness and golf oasis of Bad Ragaz.
Not many cities have managed to retain their historic features quite as successfully as Bern, the capital of Switzerland. The old town of Bern is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and thanks to its 6 kilometres of arcades - the locals refer to them as 'Lauben' - boasts on of the longest weather-sheltered shopping promenades in Europe.
The Valais village of Fiesch on the sunny side of the Rhone valley is located in the stepped Upper Goms valley, just at the entrance to the Fiescher valley. This family-friendly resort is the ideal starting point for excursions into the area round the Aletsch Glacier, the Goms Valley, over alpine passes and into the little town of Brig.
Crystalline air, snow crunching underfoot and sunshine from early till late. A box seat view of Aletsch Glacier and clear views of the Valais' prettiest four-thousand-meter peaks.
