Most know Switzerland for its alpine scenery, its outdoor sports opportunities, its precision watches, and chocolates. But this is also a country with a rich history and many artifacts of that past on display-a 14th century cathedral here, a medieval town square there, castles, cogwheel railroads, museums rich with old masters paintings and more. To discover the wonders of Switzerland, both classic and new, takes a bit of planning and that's where this book will help. It's written by experts who are all based in or near Switzerland, who have spent months roaming the country to find the Switzerland very few outsiders get to see.
