Top of Switzerland
Enjoy six days amid spectacular Alpine beauty on your guided tour of Switzerland. You’ll meet your Tour Director and traveling companions in the vibrant city of Zurich before continuing on to the picturesque Emmental Valley. Visit a local dairy and sample world-class cheeses before setting off for Interlaken – nestled between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz, and surrounded by the magnificence of the Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau peaks. You’ll venture to Europe’s highest railway station serving the 13,642-ft. summit of the Jungfrau mountain. This Alpine wonderland offers a wealth of activities and experiences for this full day’s trip. Traveling on to Lucerne, you’ll pass through charming mountains to visit Brienz – home to the “Most Beautiful Street in Europe,” then on to a special highlight of Ballenberg’s open-air museum with its centuries-old Swiss buildings. Your two-night stay in Lucerne includes a walking tour of the many inspirational and historic sites in the city including a visit to the Lion Monument – built in recognition of the Swiss Guards’ sacrifice in protection of the Royal House of France during the French Revolution centuries before. A sumptuous farewell dinner will conclude your Swiss adventure. With many stories of the stunning natural scenery and the warm and welcoming culture here, you’ll remember your trip to the Top of Switzerland as the height of your travels so far.
