Going green in Switzerland

With its incredible natural environment, it is easy to make use of stunning outdoor venues in Switzerland. But it is not just the scenery that is breathtakingly green. Sustainability is a way of life. And for events that means cost savings, efficiency and plenty of fresh air!

Wellbeing comes naturally to the Swiss. From spectacular views, healthy and fun activities to local produce, at a time when safety is increasingly important, Switzerland has many natural advantages.

Excellence Class on the Glacier Express

With its outstanding public transport system, getting around is easy. Not only do the trains run like clockwork and offer spell-binding scenery, but they help to make each event more environmentally friendly. You can even start your event as soon as you leave the airport by holding a welcome reception on the train.

Accommodating 110 guests with an on-board kitchen, large bar and charming tour guide, you can host lunch or dinner on the Red Arrow Churchill, for instance. Or take a panoramic trip through the Swiss Alps on the Glacier Express Excellence Class, with a window seat guaranteed. Never has train travel been so luxurious or memorable with a regional five-course meal served as you travel across 291 bridges and through 91 tunnels between St Moritz and Zermatt. Other spectacular train journeys are offered by Stiva Retica and InnoTren.

You are surrounded by Switzerland’s stunning natural bounty wherever you choose to host your event. Even in Zurich, the country’s largest city, your delegates can experience all of the fun of stand-up paddle boarding on the river in the city centre because the water is so clean and blue. One of the most popular things to do in Bern, the charming capital city, is take a refreshing dip in the turquoise river.
