Discover a land of soaring peaks, fairytale lakes and copious confectionery

To celebrate Swiss National Day on August 1, we look at three reasons to visit the beautiful landlocked country in central Europe.

1. The Alps will take your breath away

Switzerland is the ‘roof of Europe’ with more high mountain peaks than any other country on the continent.

2. It’s a fairytale land of 1,500 lakes

Which means  you’ll  always be within 10 miles of crystal waters.

3. Life is sweet

Switzerland invented milk chocolate in 1875 and is still the home of Nestlé, Lindt and Toblerone. But just remember – chocoholics can always get their fix at Dubai Duty Free!

Getting there

There are 35 return flights a week from Dubai International to Geneva and Zurich, operated by SWISS and Emirates.
