Allegra, Bonjour, Buongiorno, Grüezi and Hello!

My name is Res Marty and I founded Switzerland beyond Chocolate. As a native 28-year-old Swiss guy, I am addicted to chocolate and love to hike and explore new places in Switzerland and abroad.

With more than ten years of working experience in the tourism industry, I know the ins and outs of the industry. My vision is to contribute to more sustainable tourism and enable you to truly experience Switzerland’s natural, cultural, and historical heritage, and not just the touristic hotspots.

If you need help planning your trip to Switzerland, getting insider tips from local insiders, and learning more about Switzerland’s culture and history, you have come to the right place. I work hard to present the most helpful and updated guides and articles here.
