Best places to visit in Switzerland

  • Zurich: Drive to Lake Zurich and bask in the sun, or swim in the blue waters. After that, head to Kunsthaus Zurich or the Museum of Fine Arts to see fantastic artwork. If the kids are with you, Zurich Zoo has over 360 animal species that you'll want to view.
  • Geneva: Explore Lake Geneva using a boat as you marvel at the gorgeous waters and the snow-covered Alps. Rent a car in Switzerland and drive to Jardin Botanique to discover greenhouses and gardens. Visit Patek Philippe Museum to see iconic watches and musical devices.

Winter in Switzerland

Winter in Switzerland

If you love skiing, Zermatt, a small town, is the perfect spot to showcase your skills. St. Moritz has the best nightlife to meet new people and beat the cold. In February, you can take the Glacier Express train to see the city from a panoramic view. If you love architecture, the Castles of Bellinzona will blow your mind. If you’re visiting in December, look out for the magical Christmas markets throughout the country.

The agent ho gave us the car walked us to the car to check that there was enough space for our luggage and when he saw that there was limited space he did everything to solve the issue. I was positively surprised by the customer service.

After a long international flight, you are tired, and you want everything to go smoothly. Muhamed gilded my experience with Sixt. A fantastic smile on his face and friendly treatment made my day.

Helpful and efficient team at airport desk. Car a quick walk away in multi storey carpark. It costs more to rent on the Swiss side compared to renting on the French side but it does mean that you can get to the airport without having to drive through the centre of Geneva or run the risk of driving on the Swiss motorway without a vignette ( eventually your luck will run out...). No idea why the Swiss authorities think that it is better to force car rentals on French side of the airport to drive through the centre of Geneva especially as most of those renting are driving in and out of France and unlikely to drive on the wider Swiss motorway network rather than the few kilometres on the motorway section to the airport. Surely creates more pollution and traffic

We have been going on vacation to Europe since 2009. We rented cars all the time. We were satisfied with the rental of the SIXT, the car was provided even better than ordered, at the same price. Rental services are also at a high level.

I have rented cars around world and I never saw a better service and attention by employees and a quicker contract management due to an effective digitalisation. I totally recommend Sixt
