If you are heading to Switzerland – for a holiday or perhaps for longer – I have put together my list of the best books about Switzerland.

This includes fiction/non-fiction titles. As long as it is about Switzerland or the Swiss people it counts! These are also my choices of best books – you may have other suggestions. If you do please let me know in the comments as I am always on the look-out for great books!

When I was researching for this post I was rather amused by the number of non-fiction titles available. There are a lot of books written about the Swiss and their way of life. Switzerland has somewhat mythical status for some people as the land of milk and honey (or money as one author titles his book!)

Switzerland is an interesting country and one I know well. I lived and worked in Basel and also lived on the French side of Lake Geneva for a number of years. My mother also lived outside Zurich so I have visited the country on numerous occasions and have been fortunate to travel extensively throughout Switzerland.

I found it a not unpleasant place to live but I did find the Swiss slightly more uptight compared to their French neighbours. If you are planning to travel to Switzerland some of these books will give you a flavour for the country that isn’t necessarily what you may imagine! Its not all cuckoo clocks and chocolate!
