Wandering in the old town, visitors feel like they are immersed in a fairy-tale-like place with domes built ưith gothic architecture from the 15th century, and many other ancient works.
2. Matterhorn Mountain
Standing at an altitude of 4,478 m, the Matterhorn resembles a pyramid with four triangular converging at the apex, with the edges precisely cut by a giant knife.
The Matterhorn is not only a symbol of Switzerland but also of the Alps. Since the end of the 19th century, when the railway was built, it attracted a lot of tourists and especially climbers.
3. Zermatt village
Located at the foot of the legendary Matterhorn, Zermatt is one of the ski resorts that anyone wishes to visit. Step by step, you will be attracted by the lovely streets with countless wooden villas.
This place is completely not disturbed by sound of horns from motorized vehicles but is more familiar with the tinkling bell of the herds of sheep and goats walking along the streets.
4. Chillon Castle
In fairy tales, castles are often associated with romantic love story of princes and princesses. Chillon - one of the most beautiful castles in Switzerland is also such a place. Located on Lake Léman in the city of Montreux, Chillon is over 850 years old. Each year, it attracts more than 350,000 visitors.
The architect also inspired Walt Disney to build the castle in the animated movie "The Little Mermaid". Come here, when leaning against the edge of the lake, watching the snow mountain range beyond, visitors who are fans of this movie can't help but thinking about the scene of prince Eric swoon over sweet songs from the mermaid.

In addition to the clock, what make the Swiss people proud are chocolate and cheese. Some people visit the beautiful town of Gruyeres to discover the factory, learn about its history, and learn how to make the best cheese.
