Switzerland’s all time high

THE Australian market to Switzerland is showing such strong results that Switzerland Tourism Vice President, Urs Eberhard, headed down under last month to see what all the fuss is about. The latest figures show a 7% increase in Australian visitor numbers to the country in 2018, with Eberhard telling travelBulletin the market had surged a whopping 40% since the local office opened eight years ago. More than half of Australian visitors stay in Switzerland for over a week — compared to other markets which only have a two to four night stay.
