Watches, cheese and chocolate
Take a flight to Switzerland with Brussels Airlines and you will find a whole lot more than watches, cheese and chocolate.
Your first impression from the window of your flight to Switzerland will undoubtedly be of the spectacular terrain. You will see modern cities separated by huge glaciers, green Alpine meadows, a large number of ski runs, small mountain villages and high mountain summits that are covered by snow all the year round.
More than half of Switzerland is covered by the Alps, which is one of the most important mountain ranges in Europe. Switzerland is therefore an excellent country for snow and skiing holidays. The over 1,000 glaciers, including the 20 kilometres-long Aletsch Glacier in Wallis, are certainly worth a visit.
If you are taking a flight to Switzerland on business, you are most likely to be heading for the northern plateau with important cities such as Zurich, Basle and the capital, Berne. Zurich is the biggest city and is the financial and business centre of Switzerland. The most international city is Geneva, which is a sophisticated resort on the enormous Lake Geneva. Lucerne, a small but very tourist-friendly city, is also an interesting place to visit.

Basle is situated on the Rhine, on the border with France and Germany. This city has a wide range of museums and is not far away from the Black Forest and the Vosges mountains.
Zurich is the biggest but also the most accessible city in Switzerland and most of it can easily be traversed on foot, making it ideal for walkers.
