Motorhome-trip through Switzerland

One of the most beautiful regions to discover with a motorhome in Switzerland is the Bernese Oberland. This region is exactly what you'd expect when you think of a motorhome tour of Switzerland. Surrounded by magnificent mountains, you'll drive past idyllic villages and encounter the most beautiful lakes and waterfalls. The Valais region is home to the famous Matterhorn mountain. For the best views of the mountain, drive your motorhome to Zermatt, a typical and characteristic Swiss village. One thing that will always stand out during your motorhome tour of Switzerland is the perfect blend of nature and city, making it a very pleasant motorhome destination!

In Switzerland you pay toll per period. Once you've paid, you stick a vignette on your windscreen. You pay the toll at the border or at the 'App Via' of the customs. A warning triangle and first aid kit are compulsory for your motorhome journey through Switzerland.

If you are looking for a combination of mountain hiking, city life and relaxing at a lake on your campervan tour, Interlaken in the valley is the perfect destination. There are several campervan sites here that are a perfect starting point for beautiful mountain hikes and for taking a refreshing dip in Lake Thuner or Lake Brienzer afterwards. Also near the Regionaler Naturpark Thal is a good place to be and during your motorhome journey you can find the mix between the nicest Swiss cities and the green nature. So too in the industrial town of Moutier, west of the nature park. In the rest of the country there are many more RV sites from which you can take a refreshing dip in the water after a brisk mountain hike. That makes it the perfect destination for outdoor enthusiasts!

Motorhome routes through Switzerland

A motorhome journey of Switzerland will take you past the most beautiful landscapes. The Grand Tour, as the name suggests, will take you past all the country's highlights. This motorhome journey is 1643 kilometres long. Along the way, you will see, among other things, 12 UNESCO World Heritage Sites and 22 lakes. The route takes about two weeks to cover by motorhome, but you can always take a little longer or shorter! You can also go for a motorhome route through the impressive Swiss Alps. This area is particularly good for hiking from the motorhome site. And take a splash in one of the many mountain lakes you will encounter! If you wish to discover the rest of the Swiss nature during a motorhome route, you can easily do so! Scattered over the country are several beautiful nature reserves and national parks that can all be combined during a campervan journey.
