Switzerland - Mittelland (PDF Chapter)

$4.95

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

Easily one of the most charming capitals on the planet, Bern’s 15th-century Old Town is fairy-tale-like with its terraced stone buildings, covered arcades, clock towers and cobbled streets. The surrounding countryside is as benignly beautiful, with traditional villages and farms speckling the rolling green hills, some of which produce Emmental – the cheese that could not be more Swiss if it tried.
