The country’s spectacular landscape includes snow-capped Alps and grassy hills spotted with grazing cows together with 1,500 sparkling, crystal-clear lakes.
School in Switzerland is very demanding. High school students therefore usually focus on their homework during the week. Many of them also engage in after-school sports, take music lessons or are part of extracurricular clubs. On weekends, many teenagers participate in various clubs or are involved in community activities such as village festivals, gymnastics meets or historic celebrations. Plan on lots of opportunities to go skiing, hiking or getting together in cafés.
