A small, mountainous country, Switzerland is at its best during the winter months covered under a thick blanket of snow. Skiers, snowboarders and mountain climbers all head here to get their fix, navigating the contours of the Alps, but there’s more to this country than winter sports and a series of jagged peaks.
Switzerland looks pretty stunning in summer when the snow has melted, and has a unique culture where French, Italian and German influences combine. The national dishes of Switzerland include rosti and fondue, which is perfect for sharing with your friends in a warm, rustic chalet after an afternoon on the slopes!
In Switzerland, avalanches can happen during mid-winter, so it’s advisable to avoid driving in really mountainous areas, where possible.
If involved in an accident where the police aren’t needed, you must fill in a European Accident Claim Form in order to recoup any costs.
You must beep your horn before heading towards a sharp bend with limited visibility during the daytime. Flashing your headlights is the appropriate thing to do at night.
