FAQ Excursion destinations

Excursion destinations are always the destinations for a little trip. But there are also mountain railroads, panoramic trains and shipping. They get you to your destination, but are an experience in themselves. First and foremost, Switzerland offers a beautiful landscape with 8,800 mountain peaks and more than 1,500 lakes and rivers. The 329 three-thousand-meter peaks and 48 four-thousand-meter peaks alone attract visitors. You can visit a total of 65 accessible caves in Switzerland. In addition, there are about 1,100 museums, which you can find not only in the larger towns.
