Maison Cailler Chocolate Factory - the visitor trail at the Broc factory provides a complete immersion into the brand, history and products of Cailler of Switzerland. Retrace the factory's history from its humble origins in 1898 right up to the 1960s, with Cailler producing the very first milk chocolate among the fascinating facts. A chocolate experience well worth the visit.
Gruyéres and Cheese Factory - the historical town of Gruyères has preserved its Medieval character up until today. The old comital residence lies on a hill above the river Saane. The castle, which dates back to the 13th century, is today a museum depicting 800 years of regional architecture, history and culture. Take a tour of the local cheese factory, famed for producing its Gruyère cheese which is sweet but slightly salty, with a flavour that varies widely with age.
Lavaux Vineyards - the Lavaux Vineyard Terraces, stretch for about 30 km along the south-facing northern shores of Lake Geneva from the Chateau de Chillon and Montreux to the eastern outskirts of Lausanne in the Vaud region, covering the lower slopes of the mountainside between the villages and the lake. The Vineyard has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2007 and produces wine which is sold throughout the world.
Chateu de Chillon - Chillon Castle is located on a rock on the banks of Lake Geneva. The water castle is the most visited historic building in Switzerland. For nearly four centuries Chillon was the residence of the Counts of Savoy and the important land route to the St. Bernhard Pass was controlled from this island.
Zermatt is 1,620m above sea level and is a vibrant place worthy of at least a full day trip with plenty of shops, cafés, bars and great places to eat. Zermatt, a Walser village with houses dating back more than 500 years when German migrants had settled, is car-free. Everything is within a walk, even romantic neighbourhoods and quiet corners. And all paths eventually lead directly to the peaceful and yet wild mountain world at the foot of the Matterhorn
The Matterhorn at 4,478 m is considered to be the epitome of a mountain. There is no better-known mountain in the world that has a natural shape that is so close to the shape of a pyramid. 100 million years ago, enormous forces brought Africa closer to Europe. 50 million years later, as the rock masses folded and deformed, the Matterhorn emerged from the rock thrusting upwards. The Matterhorn has a magic attraction, both for day-trippers who love the view and for Alpinists who love a challenge and dream of climbing the peak of the Matterhorn at least once in their lives. The most popular ascent route is the Hörnligrat.
