Flights from Switzerland
A peaceful and prosperous country, Switzerland’s beautiful mountains and booming cities is reason enough to lure you in. Switzerland’s cities will take you by storm: Geneva’s shopping centres, Zurich’s rooftop bars, and Basel’s world renowned architecture. If you think you’ve seen enough of Switzerland, think again. Like its famous Swiss chocolates, you’ll want to visit again and again.
Where to go
The second most populous city and the centre of international diplomacy, Geneva initially served the headquarters of the International Committee of the Red Cross. Aside from its international relations sector, Geneva is interesting to get lost and explore in. Go see the old town by foot, which is accessible from Lake Geneva coming from the tour boat dock, or if you are coming from the Cornavin station, walk down to Bel-Air Island and continue waking uphill to the old town. Marvel at the famous flower clock in the English Garden upon crossing the Pont du Month Blanc bridge, or go up the hill and climb the long stairs passage and you will find yourself behind St. Peter’s Cathedral, Geneva’s well-known landmark. You can also stray off the usual path and find respite in the parks of Geneva, which can be found in between interesting parts of town. Go visit the Parc des Bastions, which is home to the liberal arts campus of the University of Geneva. Take shade in its lovely lined trees, while imbibing the goodness of the place.
You can also go enjoy the night life in Zurich, which is said to have the largest number of clubs per capita in Europe. Or participate in the so-called Streetparade, the biggest open air techno rave in Europe which occurs every second Saturday of August. The event attracts a million visitors dancing to the beat in the streets, so go spoil ahead and indulge. While in Zurich, don’t forget to visit the Old Town around the river and lakefront, which is home to notable interesting sights such as Lake Promenade. The Niederdorf in Old Town also houses beautiful alleys, restaurants and shopping stalls that are main attraction to younger tourist. At night, its lively bars are being flocked by the young adults.
One of the important cities in Switzerland, Basel emanates an aura of beautiful medieval old town centre. The best time to visit Basel is during the celebration of Basel’s famous carnival, Fasnacht, a premier event that locals usually call the most wonderful three days, celebrated beginning the Monday after Ash Wednesday. The event features a sombre feel of festivals, accompanied with distinct poetry and subtle humour to the delight of the attendees. If you are a first time tourist to this event, do not use flash photography, and be as discreet as possible so as to avoid being gazed by stunned locals.
From Geneva Airport, reach other places in United Kingdom such as Edinburgh and Manchester in United Kingdom. Go and visit The Village, which is also known as the Gay Village. It is also home to one of the oldest and most established gay communities in Europe so you have no reason to be afraid of who you are since the friendly Village is accepting towards all kinds of people.
From Euroairport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg in Basel, you can reach Montreal in Canada via Air Transat, which offers seasonal service. Known for its beautiful street art, wander along the streets of Saint Laurent Boulevard between Sherbrooke and Laurier to see impressive murals.
