Switzerland is a small country in the middle of Europe. The Alps cross Switzerland from West to East, separating the northern plateau region (swissgerman speaking) and the western french speaking part from the southern italian side. In the south-east, you might hear some Romansch (the 4th official language) spoken in a couple of valleys. There are a lot of lakes and rivers and stunning mountain sceneries. Many small old preserved cities. It has about 7 million inhabitants. They can appear a bit cold at first, but very friendly indeed and they'll usually try to help you! (an old tradition used to be that every inhabited chalet would show the swiss flag, also meaning that hospitality would be offered to any "lost" traveller). Almost everybody speaks German or French and English. It's a rich country, so it's quite expensive to travel around!

General interesting ressources can be find at (independant website) and (supported by Confederation)

Top Things to See and Do
winter sports (ski, snowboard and so on), (mountain-)hiking (moutains cover the two thirds of the country, you should at least try to sneak around one of the famous peaks... every region has one of them), water sports (27 "big" natural lakes, some high up in the mountains), festivals (each city has its openair and music week, etc.), shopping (!), rule the wolrd (or at least you could get a try at UN, WTO or the WEF in Davos).
