Facts about Switzerland by a Swiss guy

by Sonam Ledergerber
(Hannover, Deutschland)

Switzerland is a country with two faces, which could not be more different. I lived a happy childhood in rural regions, and spent much of my youth in Zurich. Now I live in Hanover, Germany.

Let's start with the ugly things:

With regard to comparable nations (politics, government system, etc...), you must have been more a well-filled purse in order to qualify as a worthy man. Apart from this chapter can be as a foreigner and really vicious treatment times pass over him.

Switzerland is a very conservative country, as it was since its inception strives to create alliances with foreign nations away (with the exception of the Vatican).

Also, Switzerland has a divorce rate of 50 percent, the highest suicide rate in the European sector, and an incredibly large number of drug addicts.

And now the good things:

As a holiday destination this country is to be recommended. Recommended are the cities of Geneva, Berne, Zurich, Chur and Davos.

But I prefer chillin' with good food and nice companionship (yup, Swiss beauties :D) to the south in the small towns around Lake Maggiaro.

The food is recommended, and by the favor of a good winemaker can get very good wines from the local store.

For sporting activities you have lots of options (swimming, vita parcours, but also skydiving and bungee jumping).

Who can afford it should take a closer look at the clock precision. My humble wrist is adorned with a golden Tisot.

Of course there is more to be admired, but I will not mess up your eventual trip to Switzerland, so I let it be.

Interesting facts:

The entire population of Switzerland would find 4 to 5 times in Tokyo space.

Swiss soldiers serving since 1506 for the protection of the pope.

I hope you liked the post.
