Switzerland is a country worth visiting all year round, but when Spring arrives, it truly lives up to its reputation as the “European Garden,” with mountains and valleys adorned in a sea of flowers. 

Starting from April, when the Spring snow begins to melt to the sunny days of June, flowers bloom abundantly under the warm sun. There are rapeseed flowers, tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, and various unnamed wildflowers, all competing for attention with their vibrant colors. In the warm Spring weather, traveling in Switzerland allows you to explore both the cities and the great outdoors and experience the beauty of Spring.

The Swiss public transportation system brings international visitors to the most fascinating panoramic routes, the most beautiful mountain summits, and the most romantic boat trips.
