Driving Directions Switzerland
SWITZERLAND is a landlocked country in central Europe, sharing its borders with France, Italy, Austria, Liechtenstein, and Germany. It is dominated by the Alps, which occupy over 60 percent of the total land area.
A second lower mountain range, the Jura Mountains, occurs in the west of the country. These two leading east-west mountain chains are divided by the Rhine and Rhone rivers, and between them lies a plateau region at the height of about 396 meters or 1,300 feet above sea level.
