SWITZERLAND TRAVELLING 2015
The beauty of the mountain scenery in Switzerland is famous and is marvellous to experience. Less well-known is the way much of the best of traditional life in the mountains , in both farms and villages , seems to continue. Alpine farming and grazing is very much alive and sits side-by-side with mountain sports and tourism.
The variety of traditional architecture , still much of it very well maintained, is extraordinary and seems to vary from valley to valley. Wooden chalets and barns, stone houses with stone roofs, grander buildings of masonry , some beautifully painted – these can all be found in most valleys and on the mountains themselves.
