If visiting snow-capped alpine peaks, strolling by crystal clear lakes, wandering the cobbled streets of charming towns, and eating chocolate and cheese is on your travel bucket list, this podcast is perfect for you.

In each episode I share tips and tricks for planning the perfect vacation and chat to Swiss travel experts about destinations, public transport, panoramic trains and much more.

About Your Host

The Holidays to Switzerland Travel Podcast is hosted by Carolyn Schönafinger, the founder of Holidays to Switzerland. Carolyn first visited Switzerland over 30 years ago and instantly fell in love!

On her many trips to Switzerland in the ensuing years, Carolyn has visited a vast majority of the country – travelling by both car and train (and on one occasion, on a coach tour) – to explore both the popular and less well-known destinations.

She now visits Switzerland every year and is on a quest to explore every inch of the country, taste all the chocolate and visit every mountain summit!
