The south of Switzerland is located in the middle of the Alps, the northwest in the Jura and it has a central plateau with hills, plains and lakes. The highest point is the Dufourspitze at 4,634 metres, and the lowest point is Lago Maggiore at 195 metres. Although Switzerland has the name to be an expensive European country, with a limited budget it's still quite reasonable to have a holiday. With a limited budget, you obviously should not go shopping in the luxury shopping streets in Zurich, Geneva, St. Moritz or Montreux. Eating out in Switzerland is not very expensive, especially in the medium-sized and smaller villages which are not directly located in the tourist areas.
