With its breathtaking landscapes, fresh air and exciting outdoor pursuits, Switzerland is an ideal destination for an active family holiday. For the real action and depending on the time of year, the family can head up to the Alps to enjoy some of Europe’s best skiing or hiking.
Both winter and summer activities are available in the Swiss Alps and the resort of Bernese Oberland and in each season, the surrounding landscapes are simply stunning. A visit to the Matterhorn is a must. Switzerland’s most recognizable landmark, this craggy mountain has great visitor facilities including year-round snowboarding plus hiking and other activities.
Visit the major cities such as Bern, where the children can ride the Gurten funicular up to the top of the mountain for 360° views of the city and the Alps. The city offers many attractions for the kids, including creating their own art at the Kindermuseum Creaviva or visiting animals at Tierpark Bern.
Head to Zürich where the children can pet the ponies, pygmy goats and pigs at Zürich Zoo, look at the great prehistoric displays at the city’s Dinosaur Museum or goggle at the 1,200 antique toys on display in the Zürich Toy Museum.
With all this and so much more, Switzerland is a great family destination with some of the best baby-friendly accommodations available in Europe.
