2019 Switzerland Tour Guide

Welcome to Switzerland

Arrive in Switzerland and press the “off” button. Breathe the crisp, clean air. Marvel at the majestic mountain panoramas from Mount Pilatus near Lucerne. Don’t just say cheese, but make cheese with a local cheese maker. Explore nature’s stunning beauty from a train or boat, on a hike, on skis or on a bike. Now you know why the Swiss are one of the happiest people in the world.

Take a stroll through the medieval Old Town of Zurich to the lake or river. Visit the cathedral of St. Gallen and take a guided tour in a museum—filled with art, not with other visitors. While small on a global scale, Swiss cities score with history and traditions, world-class art and quality of life packed into a compact area. Your groups will enjoy these and similar experiences throughout Switzerland.

“Nature wants you back” is our campaign theme. Wherever your groups are in Switzerland, they will have beautiful vistas of the Swiss Alps and countryside.

At Switzerland Tourism, group travel is very important to us, and we’re excited to partner with Leisure Group Travel on this Switzerland Tour Guide. In the guide we present ideas for faith-based groups, train enthusiasts, winter visitors and hikers/bikers.

We’re here to support you, the group leader, in creating and selling your programs. We offer you an e-learning program, Switzerland Academy, with various modules depending on your specialty, bi-weekly webinars, study trips, maps and brochures, and many other programs to support the travel trade.

Switzerland is very popular in North America—when it comes to Americans and Canadians visiting Switzerland, 2017 was the second best year in over 25 years. Thank you for your help in promoting Switzerland and bringing your groups to our beautiful country.

We can promise that your group’s tour will run as precisely as a Swiss watch and as smoothly a Swiss train, and it will be as fun-filled as dipping your fork into a pot of fondue. Your travelers certainly won’t be disappointed.

Welcome to Switzerland!
