Spiez 2

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 kilometers, 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.
Spiez is a small city with approximately 12,500 inhabitants located at the southern bank of Lake Thun in the Canton of Berne in Switzerland. The area of the city is 16.78 square kilometers. Worth a visit is the castle above the harbor with its representation rooms 13th to 18th century. The spirit of Spiez, developed there among the players, is regarded as significant factor that helped the German team to win the world championship.

A city known for its historic myths and traditions, scenic beauty, cooperative people and luxurious hotels and cottages, Spiez is one of the favorite holiday destinations for most of the vacation lovers.
