ZurichThis year, Switzerland aspires to enhance its tourism share from GCC states with a brand new experience: The Grand Tour of Switzerland. After attracting a record high of visitors in 2014, the number of visitors from GCC will grow further.

During the 1600 km long route the guest will be leaded through four linguistic regions, over five Alpine passes, to eleven UNESCO World Heritage Sites, two Biosphere Reserves and along 22 lakes. In short, an experience to the country’s most scenic and cultural highlights, strung together like pearls on a necklace.

And of course, a stay in one of the many luxurious hotels along the route will top up any expectations.
