    The Alps cover 60% of Switzerland's to square kilometres (15, sq mi) surface area, making it one of the most alpine countries. Despite the fact that Switzerland covers only 14% of the Alps total , square kilometres (74, sq mi) area, 48 out of 82 alpine four-thousanders are located in the Swiss Alps and practically all {number(s) needed} of the remaining 34 are within The Swiss are proud of the beauty of their country. There is a lot of untouched nature and in general people are careful with it and value protecting the environment.

The Swiss Plateau or Central Plateau (German: Schweizer Mittelland; French: plateau suisse; Italian: altopiano svizzero) is one of the three major landscapes in Switzerland, lying between the Jura Mountains and the Swiss covers about 30% of the Swiss surface area, and is partly flat but mostly hilly.

The Swiss Alps. The Alps are a mountain range across France, Germany, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Italy, Austria and Slovenia. The Swiss Alps are often characterized as the most spectacular part of the Alps. It's almost needless to say that the Alps are what Switzerland is.

At this stage the Alps is still under water, which is the reason why so much of the rock found in the Alps is formed of sedimentary limestone. 35 – 20 million years ago: Continents collide, and the Alps begin to form.

The North part of the African plate collides with the European plate and is thrust over the European plate. In simple terms the structure of the Alps consists of layers of rock of European, African and oceanic (Tethyan) origin. The bottom nappe structure is of continental European origin, above which are stacked marine sediment nappes, topped off by nappes derived from the African plate.
