The Swiss franc is the currency used in Switzerland and is often seen as the international benchmark in the world of finance.
Enjoy the best Switzerland has to Offer
Switzerland is a popular destination throughout the year, with skiing enthusiasts travelling there during the winter months, while travellers who appreciate the aesthetic beauty of the countryside will head over to Switzerland when the weather warms up in the summer. The exchange rate between the Swiss francs and the sterling pound rarely changes and there is not a great deal of difference between what your money is worth in Britain and what it is worth in Switzerland. Having said that the cultural differences and scenic beauty of the Alps on the border of Switzerland make it an ideal holiday destination throughout the year.
Enjoy Winter in Switzerland
The winter holidays in Switzerland are predominantly found on resorts based in the Alps where you will end up spending most of your travel money. The activities range from tranquil mountain villages where you can appreciate the natural beauty of Switzerland to the action packed ski slopes where there is the prominent night life and adrenaline fuelled travellers. The mountains are full of breath taking views and have a very welcoming atmosphere, so it is well worth a visit despite the Swiss franc exchange rate being as strong as it is at the moment.
Enjoy the Summer in Switzerland
The summer resorts are based in the mountains generally, but the majority of snow has melted and travellers can enjoy spending their travel money without having to wear numerous layers as would be the case in the winter. In the summer months, Switzerland is a favourite destination for people who enjoy going hiking or mountaineering in the Alps. There are various retreats where you can enjoy utter relaxation to rejuvenate yourself from all the stresses that you left back home, with some beautiful natural formations of waterfalls and walks through the mountain side with views that cannot be priced.
