On this occasion we have taken longer than on other occasions, but here we bring you the conclusions of the Christmas trip for all those who consider visit switzerland by car on any date, especially in winter.

Switzerland is a country where everything is simple and intuitive, its roads completely prepared for the heavy snowfall of winter, and routes of no more than 1h and a half between important cities and prominent destinations. So our travel diary to Switzerland took us from Zurich to Geneva, passing through Rheinfall, Schaffhausen, Stein Am Rhein, Vaduz, Blazers, Maienfeld, Zug, Lucerne, Bern, Interlaken, Jungfraujoch, Freiburg, Gruyeres, Montreux and Lausanne on a 9 day route ...

Why read if you can visit Switzerland in a video summary of just 6 minutes. Do not forget to tell us if you are missing something for the next ...

Paula and Isaac, from Switzerland and Liechtenstein

WE DIDN'T LIKE:

- He high standard of living in accommodation and restaurants, "prohibitive" on many occasions.
- Iberia, as always, for breaking our suitcase. We have no words left for such a shame of company.
- Not being able to see the bears (!! It's winter! They are hibernating), a symbol of Bern.
- The difficulty finding a place to eat in Spiez January 1 (reasonable?).
- The loneliness of the city of Montreux At this time of year, with hardly any atmosphere.
- The disorganization of Geneva Airport.

PICHÍ-PICHÁ:

- Juggling for fit the budget, saving on meals and lodging.
- A pity that one Highway pass by the vicinity of Chillón Castle, making him lose part of his magic.
- He "american" bathroom from the Montreux hotel. Let's say there are things that "don't always fit".
- Lausanne He didn't quite hook us like other towns or cities.
- Flood in Geneva, which makes us see a city of which they speak very well, with a very negative perspective.

WE LOVED IT:

- !!!Chocolate!!! Chocolate and more chocolate. Paula's eyes were leaving her orbit.
- Rheinfall, the Rhine Falls, the most impressive in Europe.
- Schaffhaussen, the ancient city of the boatmen.
- Reach the snowy mountains and valleys of Heidi, in Maienfeld.
- The lovelyZug, and truly charming historical center.
- The route to Interlaken with villages on a lake like Thun and Spiez.
- The ambience of the city "between-lakes"
- The low and high city of Freiburg, and its historical funicular.
- He accommodation charm through which we have been going, especially the Landhaus Hotel.
- Visit Switzerland by car It has been very simple, and has given us great flexibility to improvise on the road. Remember that we have achieved up to 15% discount for our readers directly applied if you click on the following image (and all the information for this trip in)
