Switzerland always has been a neutral and safe country and is located in the very heart of Europe. Our country can be reached through the airports in Zurich, Geneva, Berne, Basel and Lugano (named in the order of importance) or by train. Switzerland has four (4) official languages (German, French, Italian and Romansch) thus offers a great diversity of culture, history and food. It is a tiny country but we have many lovely lakes, a lot of astonishing mountains and quite some picturesque farmland trails.
Switzerland is a unique country offering distinctive architecture, enchanting nature, wonderful castles, palaces and museums, a diverse culture, and a warm and welcoming atmosphere. All of this gives our country a special charm which will make your visit memorable. Switzerland is a popular destination for international MICE events. Its well-developed infrastructure makes it ideal for corporate and business events, as well as for private trips, incentives, congresses, and world-class festivals. In Switzerland you will find state-of-the-art conference halls and venues suitable for any event, as well as great hotels and restaurants to suit your requirements.
