I will lead you to winter hot spots and summer playgrounds. But mostly I will lead you to places where we, the Swiss, find adventure and relaxation. There are still a few stunning but uncrowded and unspoiled pockets that don't always make it onto the big travel sites or into guidebooks.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to show you around. I don't promise unbiased advice, but I hope I can spark your desire to discover "my" Switzerland!
