About

In this rich and magical Alpine country of Europe you will find natural beauty around every corner. On this magical tour of Switzerland you will experience stunning snow-covered mountains, crystal clear lakes, unspoilt towns and spectacular cities. From Zurich – Switzerland’s commercial heart, to the ‘William Tell’ country of Lucerne, and to Zermatt, home of the Matterhorn – one of the wonders of the western world. This is Switzerland at its simplest and best.

You should experience it because...

You will see the Rhine Falls, Europe’s biggest waterfall and a magnificent site. Take the adventure path, if you dare, with an elevator that goes from Laufen Castle to the outlook platforms and gives you an unobstructed view of this wonderful spectacle of nature.

Natural beauty – pure and simple

Zurich is Switzerland’s high-energy metropolis – shop in the Bahnhofstrasse’s fine boutiques.

Take a journey to the ‘Top of the World’ to Switzerland’s Mount Jungfraujoch and be overwhelmed by some incredible views.

  • Days Details
  • 1 Zurich, sightseeing and attractions Zurich is much more than a banking capital. From impressive churches to awesome art collections, the city has much to offer culture vultures. The Great Church is a 12thcentury structure with 18th-century updates – the core spans the Carolingian to Gothic styles with one modern touch – Giacometti’s stained-glass window. The Stiftung Sammiung E.G Buhrie has a stunning array of Manets, Monets, and more (appointments only). And Zurich is a shopper’s paradise – walk along the Bahnhofstrasse for high-end boutiques, or head for Niederdorf for the more trendy shops.
  • 2 Zurich – Rhine Falls See Europe’s biggest waterfall and its enormous volume of water as it plunges from a height of 23m. Take the adventure path with elevator from Laufen Castle to the outlook platforms and see an unobstructed view of this spectacle of nature. A boat ride to the Rhine Falls basin, the rocks in the middle of the Rhine, and that also travels further down to the Rheinau power plant, is not to be missed.
