The Mittelland – between Lake Geneva and Zürich, flanked by the Jura range to the north and the high Alps to the south – is a region of lakes, gentle hills and some higher peaks. There’s a wealth of cultural and historical interest in the cities of Basel, Luzern and the federal capital, Bern. Wherever you are, the mountains are never more than a couple of hours away by train.
