When the naturalists, poets and painters of the 18th century began to see the alps in a new light and curiosity replaced fear, tourism was born in Switzerland. The picturesque lakeside towns of Interlaken, Lucerne, Lausanne, Montreux and Vevey were the starting points for trips to the alpine scenery.
Switzerland is a land of contrasts. Cities like Lucerne combine modern architecture with a medieval downtown and a 2500 m high mountain is just around the corner. Nevertheless, one may say that those who are looking for music, arts, important historical monuments, museums or shopping will generally find points of interest in major cities while those who want to get more than a glimpse of the alpine scenery are much better served in the alpine resorts. Quality of service and access to modern communication is equally high in both places.
