Switzerland has a dense network of cities, where large, medium and small cities are complementary. The plateau is very densely populated with about 450 people per km2 and the landscape continually shows signs of man presence. The weight of the largest metropolitan areas, which are Zurich, Geneva–Lausanne, Basel and Bern tend to increase as you can see in the Map of Switzerland with cities. In international comparison the importance of these urban areas is stronger than their number of inhabitants suggests. In addition the two main centers of Zurich and Geneva are recognized for their particular great quality of life. Swiss cities are mostly located in the Swiss plateau in close proximity to ski resorts and nature.

Located just 20 kilometers from Zurich, Winterthur might be a large city of over 100,000 residents but it feels like a small town. This is even more clear in the Old Town, where the narrow cobblestone streets zigzag around the centuries-old buildings that make up Marktgasse shopping street. Sitting at an altitude of 1,000 meters, La Chaux-de-Fonds is Switzerland highest city. Surrounded by valleys, open countryside, and the beautiful river Doubs on the French-Swiss border, the city is a great starting point for hikes.

Dating back over 5,000 years, Chur is Switzerland oldest city. Its car-free Old Town Center is a great place to see some of that history, starting with the Saint Martin Church, the clock tower, and the Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Assumption as its mentioned in the Map of Switzerland with cities. Right behind the church, there is the local Rätisches Museum, which chronicles the history of the area and includes archeological finds. Montreux sits right on the banks of Lake Léman and against the backdrop of the Swiss Alps. A stunning resort with a promenade that connects to hiking trails, Montreux offers plenty of outdoor fun all year long. Fribourg is best known as a university town, but this medieval city has plenty of historical and medieval attractions waiting to be discovered. A stroll through the picturesque Old Town will take you past the Cathedral of St. Nicholas, the working Hauterive Abbey, and the Baroque Loreto Chapel.
