Switzerland is known for its majestic alpine vistas and vibrant scenery. Whether you're on a drive across the country or looking for a place to spend a holiday, these fairy tale destinations reveal all the magic and splendor Switzerland has to offer.


Gimmelwald

Nestled at the foot of the Jungfrau-Aletsch Protected Area, Gimmelwald occupies a space 1363 meters (4472 feet) above sea level. Unlike its ritzy neighbor Grindelwald, this quaint village enjoys a tranquil life, away from the chaos of winter sports and adventuresome jaunts. Gimmelwald is a car-free area, and can be accessed by the Schilthorn cable car that makes a stop here. Stay here if your only aim is to be swept up in the miraculous beauty of the mountains, and revel in the simple pleasures of life that this sleepy village is seemingly privy to. Stays here are far from luxurious, although they carry a charm of their own, with a small handful of B&Bs, inns, and local pensions opening up their homes and hearts to offbeat travelers throughout the year. The Hotel Mittaghorn is one such rustic chalet that offers pleasant stays with soothing alpine views. If you crave civilization and life's modern luxuries, ride the aerial gondola and dine at Piz Gloria, Swiss' famous revolving restaurant that hangs high above the Schilthorn.

Nestled among the mighty Swiss alps, the beautiful mountainside village of Lauterbrunnen is a sight to behold with its picturesque cottages and stunning natural surroundings.

Tolkien in his childhood, the village and its nearby valley is believed to have been an inspiration for the fictitious Elvish town of Rivendell from his epic saga- the 'Lord Of The Rings'. And looking at this small valley village, surrounded by the glorious mountains with the white peaks gleaming in the distance, it is clear that the claim is not far from the truth.
