12 Facts About Life in Switzerland You’ll Not Even Find in a Travel Guide



Known to be arguably the prettiest country in the world, Switzerland has always allured travelers from all around the world. But there are so many things about this country that we don't know and no travel guide will ever tell us!

Military Service

So it is mandatory for men in Switzerland to serve in Military until they are 55 years old. Every year all men under 55 go to 3-week military training. During these sessions, new recruits drink and have fun and treat it more like a vacation.

Train Timetables

Also the train timelines in this country are perfect. It is designed in such a way that you can get one from any part of the country (including the villages near the mountains) to your destination point in the quickest way possible. Trains depart every 15 minutes so you can get on the train 4 times an hour almost on a 24-hour basis.
