Switzerland - Central Switzerland (PDF Chapter)

$4.95 USD

This is the Central Switzerland chapter from Lonely Planet’s Switzerland guidebook.

To the Swiss, Central Switzerland – green, mountainous and soothingly beautiful – is the very essence of ‘Swissness’. It was here that the pact that kick-started a nation was signed in 1291; here that hero William Tell gave a rebel yell against Habsburg rule. Geographically, politically, spiritually, this is the heartland. Nowhere does the flag fly higher.
