Based on the use of parking spaces, the EasyPark app has determined the most popular excursions in Switzerland in the summer of 2022.

Chaos at airports, heat at long-distance destinations – we chose to stay in the country: although there were hardly any coronavirus measures and we could travel practically anywhere, many Swiss explored their country by car again . This is shown by the Easypark parking barometer.
