Switzerland More Than Just Mountains

Switzerland Tourism (Schweiz Tourismus/Suisse Tourisme) is running an advertising campaign focusing on Swiss cities. Although Switzerland’s major drawcard is beautiful mountains, the tourism agency is keen to promote the opportunities for tourists available in the country’s cities. A new television commercial, featuring two mountain men sampling the city life, shows that Swiss cities, too, offer all you could want for a relaxing and varied couple of days — and nights. Historic sights, cutting-edge contemporary architecture, cosy cafes, buzzing nightlife, shopping in romantic alleyways, a rich and varied cultural life… and all so compact, that you can easily reach everything on foot. The campaign leads to a focus on what’s available in 23 cities online at www.myswitzerland.com/cities. Included here are two earlier commercials focusing on Switzerland’s offerings in the mountains.
