Switzerland, officially the Swiss Confederation, is a landlocked Alpine country in Central Europe. The country, which borders Germany to the north, France to the west, Italy to the south, and Austria and Liechtenstein to the east, was historically a confederation, and has been a federation since 1848. Switzerland is a federation of relatively autonomous cantons, some of which have a history of confederacy that goes back more than 700 years, arguably putting them among the world's oldest surviving republics. With an area of 41,285 square kilometres, Switzerland is a relatively small country. Switzerland comprises three basic topographical areas namely the Swiss Alps, the Swiss plateau, and the Jura mountains. Switzerland has four official languages namely German, French, Italian and Romansh.
Lenzburg is a town in the central regions of the Swiss canton of Aargau and is the capital of the district of the same name. The town, founded in the Middle Ages, is situated in the Seetal valley, about 3 kilometres south of the Aare delta. Lenzburg and the neighbouring municipalities of Staufen and Niederlenz have grown mutually in an agglomeration. The town lies 30 kilometers west of Zurich. There is a speedy public transport connection through Lenzburg from Zurich to Basel. A lot of people commute to Zurich or its airport at Kloten each day. The oldest registered usage of the name Lencis from which the name Lenzburg derives is from 893 AD. In 1875, it was connected to the railway system.
Lenzburg is a significant economic centre that contains over 800 enterprises, of which about 80 percent are in the service sector. The majority of businesses are in the small and medium enterprise bracket, although numerous international companies are established in Lenzburg, such as the multinational ABB and the meat processing plant Traitafina and it has a total workforce of around 6,000.
A city known for its historic myths and traditions, scenic beauty, luxurious hotels and cottages, Lenzburg is one of the favorite holiday destinations for most of the vacation lovers.
