Why I Chose Switzerland for My Winter Getaway

There were a few reasons why I chose Switzerland as my top winter destination this year:

  • Breathtaking snow-covered landscapes – Switzerland looks like a fairytale in winter! I couldn’t wait to see the snow-capped Alpine peaks and frosty forests.
  • World-famous ski resorts – As a beginner skier, I wanted to experience the thrilling slopes at resorts like Zermatt, St Moritz, and Grindelwald.
  • Picture-perfect Swiss villages – With their chalets, cheese, and chocolate, the storybook Swiss villages I’ve always seen on postcards seemed like the perfect winter wonderland.
  • To experience the Christmas vibes – What better place than Switzerland to enjoy the festive Christmas markets, decorations, and traditions!

Where I Went in, Switzerland

During my 8-day Switzerland winter trip, I covered these stunning locations:

  • Zermatt
  • Interlaken
  • Lucerne
  • Zurich
  • St. Moritz

I strategically chose these spots to cover everything from high mountains and skiing to breathtaking lakes as well as the famous Swiss cities.

My Special Experiences

Here are the top highlights from my Switzerland winter vacation that gave me lifelong memories:

The Train Rides

Enjoying scenic train rides is my favorite activity in Switzerland:

  • The GoldenPass panoramic train from Montreux to Interlaken takes in all the natural beauty.
  • Bernina Express – One of Europe’s most scenic journeys between Chur and Tirano passing through 196 bridges and 55 tunnels!
  • Glacier Express – The slowest express train in the world snaking through the gorgeous Alpine scenery.

Skiing the Iconic Slopes

I had an incredible time skiing down some legendary spots:

  • KLEINE SCHEIDEGG – Interlaken 
  • CORVIGLIA – St. Moritz

The views were phenomenal and the slopes were perfectly groomed!

Christmas Market in Zurich

No winter trip to Switzerland is complete without visiting a traditional Christmas Market glowing with Yuletide cheer. Zurich’s market at the main station was magical with Christmas carols, mulled wine, and local shopping!

Cheese Fondue Dinner

Relishing an authentic Swiss cheese creamy dinner with crusty bread inside a warm, cozy wooden chalet while snow fluttered outside was a high point. The fried cheese with white wine hit the spot!
