Trip Summary
2 nights in Basel

Basel sits snugly in the north-western corner of Switzerland, bordering both France and Germany. This strategic location on the Rhine River means Basel has historically held an important position as a commercial and trading hub. Few cities in Europe can match Basel for its concentration of cultural attractions and things to do. The city is a colorful mix of business visitors to the trade fairs, tourists thirsty for art and history, students of the oldest university in Switzerland, expatriates lured in by the many headquarters of multinational companies, and of course, the ever-patient Baslers with their lilting dialect and dry humor.


Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Old Town (Altstadt), Rathaus (Town Hall) and Marktplatz, Kunstmuseum Basel (Museum of Art), Basler Münster (Basel Minster), Spielzeug Welten Museum (Toy Museum), Spalentor (fortified gate), Zoologischer Garten (Zoo), Historisches Museum (Historical Museum), Jean Tinguely Museum and so much more!



2 nights in Bern

Bern is one of the oldest cities in Europe with origins going back to the 12th century. It is on the UNESCO list of World Cultural Heritage and boasts many museums, theatres, landmarks, cafés, restaurants and shops - not to mention the weekly market (and the lovely Christmas market) - all of which can be easily reached on foot. The Old Town of Bern has one of the longest "weatherproof" shopping malls in Europe under its almost 4 mile of covered arcades. The medieval atmosphere, with shops in the cellar vaults is unique and charming.


Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Old Town (Altstadt), The Paul Klee Museum, Zytglogge (Clock Tower), Bern Cathedral, Gurten Moutain, Bern Historical Museum, Bundeshaus (Swiss Federal Building), BärenPark, Museum of Fine Arts, The Rose Garden, Einstein Museum, and so much more!



2 nights in Interlaken

A picture-perfect destination nestled between two emerald-colored lakes and snowcapped mountains; Interlaken has long been admired as a dream getaway for many years. The town is situated in the heart of Switzerland surrounded by the dramatic Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau Mountains. Many vacationers flock to this charming Swiss resort town because of its ample number of skiing and hiking areas. Winter or summer, you`ll find plenty of things to do in and around the city of Interlaken.


Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Old Town, Harder Kulm, Höhematte Park, Schynige Platte, Unterseen, Lake Thun, Lake Brienz, Museum of Tourism, Niederhorn, St. Beatus Cave and Waterfalls, Interlaken Monastery and Castle, Unspunnen Castle, outdoor sports, and so much more!



2 nights in Lucerne

Located at the north end of the Lake Lucerne within sight of Mount Pilatus and Rigi, Lucerne is a beautiful small city in the heartland of Switzerland. It abounds in narrow cobblestone streets, covered bridges, frescoed houses, and fountains. The city became a center of Swiss history and legend, and is the setting for the most memorable part of the legend of William Tell who shot an apple off of his son's head. Lucerne is also a great base from which to explore other famous Swiss sites.


Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Explore the Old Town, Walk the Medieval Wooden Covered Bridges, Hike Mt Rigi or Mt Pilatus, Walk the Fortress Walls, Cruise on the Lake by boat, Visit the Lion Monument, Visit Jesuit Church, Visit the many Museums, Check out the Glacier Garden, take some pictures at the Bourbaki Panorama, and so much more!



2 nights in Zurich

Zurich is a stunningly gorgeous with a beautifully-preserved old town, endless greenery, wondrous snow-capped mountains, fresh air, and crystal clear lake views. The city`s extraordinary museums, churches and galleries, confirm the city`s position as Switzerland's spiritual, if not political, capital. There is also a hip, less conventional side to Zurich. Züri West, once the industrial section, has become the in spot over the last decade, with loft living, galleries, museums, experimental theater and clubs.


Recommended Stay: At least 3 nights
Must See`s:
Lake Zurich, Old Town (Altstadt), Museum of Art (Kunsthaus Zurich), Uetliberg Mountain, Zoo Zurich, Lindenhofplatz, Bahnhofstrasse, Grossmunster, Church of Our Lady (Fraumunster), Rietberg Museum and so much more!

Package Map Picture
Switzerland

Switzerland is a pristine country of lakes, mountains and forests. The best known of the continent`s mountain ranges, the Alpine chain, runs through most of Switzerland and provides the majority of the country`s magnificent natural sights. In the summer, towns such as Interlaken become green mountain centers for walking and mountaineering, and there are few places more naturally beautiful in the whole of Europe. Zurich, Geneva, Bern and Lucerne are models of Swiss efficiency, offering a wealth of perfectly serene history. Less busy are the lakeside resorts, including fashionable Montreux on Lake Geneva.
