Switzerland is an expensive country to visit. For that reason, it may be a while before I get there. However, if money were no issues, I would go as soon as possible. And, I’d take my mom. It’s literally her only answer to the question, “What’s the one place you want to go?” While I doubt that I’ll ever be a skier considering my first and only time resulted in ACL surgery, Switzerland still has much to offer to the non-skiers.
Best Things To Do in Switzerland
See the Cows
My cow obsession has become increasingly worse. So, naturally, one of the things I’m most excited about seeing in Switzerland are the cows.
This bridge is the longest pedestrian-only suspension bridge in the Swiss Alps. The bridge’s length is 560 feet across a windy gorge and 330 feet above the glacial lake. To get to the bridge, you must take a freight cable car ride over a ravine and then hike about 90 minutes.
Aareschlucht (Aar Gorge)
The Aar Gorge is a section of the river Aar that carves through a limestone ridge and is a result of glaciation 10,000 years ago.
ZipRider in Grindelwald
How can you really say no to this?! With a 675 foot drop and reaching speeds up to 55 mph, I know I’ll definitely be doing it when I go.
Climb the Via Ferrata
This is mountain climbing for beginners. It involves climbing up a series of rungs that are bolted into the mountain. Mountain climbing experience without worrying where to put your hands and feet. Win. Win.
The Abbey Library of Saint Gall
The oldest library collection in Switzerland and one of the earliest and most important monastic libraries in the world.
Ever been to Switzerland? Did any of these places strike your interest? Any suggestions for me when I finally do make it there?

Switzerland is an excellent choice. I have never been but the itinerary above looks like fun. I especially like the huge suspension bridge and the Zip Ridder – what an adventure that would be.
I love adventure (which is ironic since I probably won’t ever brave skiing again haha) and it looks like Switzerland has plenty of adventure to offer! I love bridges so the suspension bridge looks amazing to me. 🙂
I have been to Switzerland – but only Lucerne. I would love to go back and see far more. It looks so beautiful!
That’s awesome you’ve been. It looks like something out of a fairytale! 🙂
What a great choice, never been there myself but heard good things about. It looks stunning!
PS love that you have an obsession with cows!
I’ve heard nothing but good things as well! 🙂
And, I can’t help but have the cow obsession…I mean, look at that face!
As a Swiss person: get in touch with me if you ever go to Switzerland. I probably have some good tips on saving money and what to see and do.
Thanks Tiffany! I will definitely do that. I’d like to make a priority after Asia, so we shall see 🙂
I’m currently living in Switzerland and will have to put some of these spots on my travel bucket list for the spring! Thanks for sharing
Ahh I’m jealous! I hope you go to them 🙂
