Western Europe - Switzerland (Chapter)
This is the Switzerland chapter from Lonely Planet's Western Europe guidebook.
This is Sonderfall Schweiz ('special case Switzerland'), a privileged neutral country set apart from others, proudly idiosyncratic, insular and unique. Blessed with gargantuan cultural diversity, its four official languages alone say it all.
