As one of the most expensive countries in Europe, Switzerland is often skipped over by budget travelers. Having been here, I can say that before you even get out of the train station/airport, you’ll begin to wonder “how the heck did I spend so much money already?!”
It is an expensive country with only a few ways to save money. But that being said, Switzerland is one of the most beautiful places on earth – and beauty has a price! The country is home to shimmering lakes, picturesque mountains (hello Alps!), tiny walled medieval towns, soaring peaks, endless green fields you want to run through, delicious chocolate, beer, and friendly people.
Everything runs on time here, the country is safe, and everyone is super nice. I loved my time here. The country rocks no matter what time of the year you visit (summer hiking, winter skiing).
