On this Spectacular Switzerland tour, you’ll enjoy Switzerland’s stunning mountains and lakes—with overnights in Zürich, Geneva, Gstaad, the Interlaken area, and Lucerne. The highlight of this tour is the time spent in the Interlaken area. The town is nestled between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz and is surrounded by three mighty mountains: Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau. From Interlaken, Globus has arranged an unforgettable rack railway trip to the “Top of Europe,” a high alpine wonderland of ice and snow. Here, at the amazing Jungfraujoch, Europe’s highest railway station at 11,332 feet, you can experience an audiovisual journey through the alpine world; stand on the observation platform to view the glaciers and witness a panoramic view overlooking France, Germany, and Italy; and more. It’s an unforgettable experience!</BR></BR>Another special experience that Globus has arranged is a visit to the magnificent castle in Gruyères, where you’ll walk through eight centuries of architecture, history, and culture. You’ll also enjoy lunch with local specialties and a traditional dessert with meringue and double-crème at the castle.</BR></BR>You’ll also spend time in Geneva, Switzerland’s most international and second-largest city, which has a fantastic lakeside setting and breathtaking panoramas of the Alps. Here, you’ll have an orientation of the city and time to explore on your own. Gstaad is one of Switzerland’s most famous skiing resorts and a popular destination for international celebrities. Here, you’ll be able to relax in this beautiful, serene setting. In Lucerne, enjoy a guided walking tour that includes Chapel Bridge, a picturesque wooden bridge with the iconic water tower.</BR></BR>These are just a few of the highlights on this Spectacular Switzerland tour. It’s a vacation of a lifetime!
