Climbing a mountain peak, hiking over alpine meadows or rather strolling through forests? Thanks to over 65,000 kilometers of marked hiking trails, you can discover virtually every corner of Switzerland on foot. The hiking trails are well signposted and as varied as the landscape itself — the path quickly becomes your destination.
