Is it photos of the incredible scenic beauty that have enticed you to visit Switzerland? I’m not surprised. Everywhere you turn in Switzerland you are rewarded with breathtaking views of mountains, lakes, rivers, glaciers, gorges and lush fields - it really is the most beautiful place on Earth.

But the magnificent scenery certainly isn’t the only thing that Switzerland has going for it. The country is home to 13 UNESCO World Heritage Sites and some rather unique traditions and customs, both of which we are going to hear about today.

My guest today is Livio Goetz, Director of Switzerland Tourism Australia and New Zealand and Livio has some fascinating facts to share with us today.
In this episode, Livio talks about:

  • His background and his career in the travel industry
  • Swiss customs and traditions including unique events and sports
  • Switzerland's UNESCO World Heritage-listed sites
  • His top 3 'must do' experiences for first time visitors to Switzerland
