DAY 1 MONDAY Zurich – Lucerne – Mt. Titlis – Interlaken
We leave Zurich at 8.30 a.m. A short drive takes us to the city of Lucerne
where we visit the Lion Monument and walk over the 14th century wooden
bridge, time at leisure for shopping and sightseeing. At noon we proceed to the
mountain resort of Engelberg. A cable car ride to the summit of Mount Titlis
brings you up into the high alpine region with its glaciers and eternal ice.
Enjoy a magnificent ride in the new revolving “ROTAIR” gondola. (Take a
warm sweater along.) In the afternoon we cross Brunig Pass to the Bernese
Oberland and reach the village Brienz, which is famous for its long tradition of
woodcarving. We continue to the holiday resort of Interlaken at the foot of
Jungfrau mountain. Dinner on your own. Overnight at first class hotel.
DAY 2 TUESDAY Interlaken – Berne – Gruyères – Geneva
We leave Interlaken in the morning and drive along beautiful Lake of Thun to
the Swiss capital, Berne. The city is attractively set on a steepsided curve of
the River Aare and backed by the majestic Alps. A city tour to the Old Town
includes the Clock Tower, Kramgasse, and the 15th century Cathedral of
St. Vincent. A drive south takes us to the scenic dairy farmlands, to Gruyères.
A beautiful hilltop town, preserved against time, which could be the magical
setting for fairytales with its impressive, medieval castle. An informative visit to
a factory of delicious milk product is a further highlight of our day. We continue
our drive to the Vaud Riviera and reach Geneva, the most cosmo-politan
city of Switzerland. Arrival in Geneva at approx. 5.30 p.m.
