With a whole host of world-class ski resorts set amongst some of Europe's highest mountains, it's no surprise that Switzerland is best known as a winter holiday centre for fans of snow-sports who are set on some winter adrenalin and fun.
However, whilst Switzerland is certainly a fantastic place to visit during the winter months, it shouldn't be overlooked as a possible summer destination either.
With warm summertime temperatures, a good sunshine record, a glut of beautiful cities and towns with welcoming hosts, and a vast array of activities to try, Switzerland can make a surprisingly good choice for both families and couples wanting to experience something other than a week sat by a pool.
And, of course, Switzerland's high-alpine scenery is as awe-inspiring as ever, no matter what the season.
