While local cuisine varies from region to region, some dishes are the nation’s favourites. Cheese fondue is served in a pot with bread, while raclette is melted cheese served as half a wheel and scraped off. Rösti is a delicious fried potato cake, and älplermargronen the original mac‘n cheese!

Sat in the heart of the Old Continent and between all of your favourite countries, Switzerland is Europe’s sweet spot. In the affluent north, trendy cosmopolitan cities are the right size to bedazzle, whilst not overwhelm–– making them a perfect urban intermezzo from the rural south, where quaint mountain villages move to the sound of cowbells rising from the pastures below, and where winding back roads and exhilarating mountain passes turn alpine backdrops into life-sized adventures.

It also means infinitely more fun when you hire a campervan in Switzerland to start an epic road trip along as many cantons as you can. Along Jura, a sub-alpine pasture paradise of farms, vineyards, and Freiberger horses; to urban and artsy Basel, where witty design and odd art make a medieval city thoroughly modern; past the cantons of Zürich and Schaffhausen, between which lies the roaring Rhine Falls, Europe’s largest waterfall; up the mighty Matterhorn, in the canton of Valais; and down to Montreux, following the charming Swiss Riviera. However much you choose to fit in your RV road trip, Switzerland has cantons to spare!
