Even though less than 15% of the Alps lie within Switzerland, it’s the country that people most closely associate with the Alps. No doubt, Switzerland is home to some of the most famous Alpine locations-the Matterhorn, the Eiger, the Jungfrau-and many of the highest peaks and largest glaciers. It’s also home to an extensive network of well-marked hiking trails.
We think you’ll enjoy these interesting facts about the Switzerland and hiking in the Swiss Alps. For additional information and books about Switzerland see our Suggested Reading.
