Switzerland (German "Schweizerische Eidgenossenschaft", French "Confédération suisse", Italian "Confederazione Svizzera", Romansh "Confederaziun svizra") with its capital Bern in Central Europe covers 41,285 km². The four official languages are a special feature of this federal state with its pronounced federalist structure. Switzerland borders Germany to the north, Austria and Liechtenstein to the east, Italy to the south and France to the west. It is divided into 26 partially sovereign cantons. 58% of the area is mountainous, there are 3,350 peaks over 2,000 metres and 48 peaks over 4,000 metres high. Viticulture is mainly practised at the beginning of the three large river valleys (see below).
