Bern Old Town
There are many beautiful cities in Switzerland
but the medieval streets of Bern's Old Town has earned itself a UNESCO World Heritage status.
It's a fairly small relaxed place where time moves slowly and the locals don't seem nearly as busy as other cities.
Expect to see covered arcades, whimsical fountains, cobbled streets and traditional architecture
all framed by rolling hills and the glacial Aare River.
Wengen is an impossibly perfect example of an Alpine village
where traditional timber chalets cling to the slopes of the Lauterbrunnen Valley.
It's been developed into a car-free resort town which has an exclusive upscale feel and a fine collection of hotels.
In winter the high altitude and gorgeous scenery attracts a discerning skiing crowd,
in fact Wengen has so many skiers at this time its population increases almost ten-fold.
This pristine lake is fed by the glacial brooks of three surrounding mountains.
It's a beautiful and tranquil spot where nature lovers come to swim, row, hike and–
in winter – ride the 3.5 kilometer long toboggan run which travels from the lake to the gondola station.
The surrounding area is also known for its rich flora and fauna – orchids, gentian, edelweiss and herds of grazing sheep and cows all call this place home.
This is a city located between two Alpine Lakes,
although it's not so much the city which has earned itself a place on this list but the surrounding area –
Interlaken lies at the footsteps of the most beautiful alpine range in all of Switzerland and arguably the whole world.
The scenery is truly breathtaking with surrounding snowcapped mountains
sprinkled with waterfalls, glacial lakes and lush green alpine meadows.
It's also the main transport gateway to the mountains and lakes of that region, making it an excellent base for exploring.
Brienz is a traditional village located in the middle of towering mountains
and right on the shores on the brilliant turquoise Lake Brienz.
It's located near Interlaken but deserves a special mention of its own.
For a touch of romance head for Brunngasse which was once awarded the title of most beautiful street in Europe.
Here most of the houses are wood carved and date back from the 18th century, giving it a chocolate box prettiness.
