In addition to a traditional main table of contents for the ebook, each chapter opens with its own table of contents, making it easy to browse.

Explore the layout of city centers and popular neighborhoods with easy-to-read full-color maps. Plus get an overview of Swiss geography with the convenient atlas at the end of the ebook. What’s Covered? Get to Know Switzerland: Zürich is surprisingly small, but its wealth of cultural riches—like luxurious Alstadt (Old Town), Grossmünster cathedral, and the modern art at the Bührle Museum—make up for its size. East of Zürich, discover the old Rhine city of Schaffhausen and its medieval frescoes, the busy textile center of St. Gallen, and princely Liechtenstein. In Graubünden, take the gorgeous train ride to Arosa, visit Heidi country in Maienfeld, or ski and be seen in glitzy St. Moritz. Ticino’s lakes, like the beauteous Lugano, serene Locarno, and elegant Ascona, are perhaps its greatest attraction. Central Switzerland is the most-visited region in the country, with Vierwaldstättersee lake, Rütli Meadow, fabled Wilhelm Tell chapel, and the medieval town of Luzern. Basel is home to great modern art, at Museum Tinguely and Fondation Beyeler. The largely undiscovered cantons of Fribourg and Neuchâtel are a favorite western Switzerland getaway, with treasures like the picturesque castle at Gruyères, lakeside Neuchâtel, and the medieval center of Fribourg. Bern, Switzerland’s federal capital, offers famed sandstone arcades, painted fountains, the Zytglogge performing mechanical clock, the Gothic Münster, and the art-filled Zentrum Paul Klee. Berner Oberland, a summit of summits, includes the peaks of Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau as well as glam Gstaad. Valais is home to the country's most photographed icon, the Matterhorn, in Zermatt. Don’t miss the resort luxury of Saas-Fee, Verbier, and Crans-Montana. Vaud is centered around Lac Léman (Lake Geneva) and harbors alpine villages, glamorous lake resorts, and verdant vineyards. Be sure to visit the Old Town and hyperactive waterfront of Lausanne, harbor-front Vevey, Riviera-like Montreux, and Switzerland’s most fabled castle, Château de Chillon. Finally, no trip would be complete with a visit to Geneva —birthplace of Calvinism and the International Red Cross, home to the European headquarters of the UN, and a stronghold of private banks and exclusive boutiques. Begin by exploring the Palais des Nations and Vieille Ville (Old City), then head to the downtown waterfront and the feathery Jet d’Eau. Note: This ebook edition is adapted from Fodor’s Switzerland, 46th edition, but differs in some content. Additionally, the ebook edition includes photographs and maps that will appear on black-and-white devices but are optimized for devices that support full-color images.
