Following the Alps across Switzerland and Austria

Follow the Alps across Switzerland and Austria, starting with Geneva, the "Capital of Peace." You'll see Lucerne's charming covered Chapel Bridge, and Bern's peninsular Old Town and covered arcades, then enjoy all that prosperous Zurich has to offer. Crossing into Austria, you'll see why Innsbruck is synonymous with winter sports and alpine beauty, and see plenty more of Baroque Salzburg than "The Sound of Music" sights. Finally, you'll visit grand Vienna, and get to know its many facets.

The services we provide as part of our comprehensive packages include accommodations, train tickets, airport and train station transfers, city tours and day trips. In addition to the tours included, we can arrange a number of excursions based on your own interests. All of our tours are custom, and this is just a sample meant to give an idea for what our trips are like, and the opportunities our destinations provide.

3 Nights in Geneva

Switzerland's second city and main French-speaking metropolis, this proud "Protestant Rome" was once John Calvin's capital, but is now famous as the eminently livable "Capital of Peace." A cosmopolitan center of global diplomacy from the Red Cross to much of the UN, Geneva is the scenic spot where the Rhone leaves Lake Geneva. The watchmaker's Mecca, Geneva offers impressive shopping and fine dining, but one of the best activities is free: walking through the Old Town and by the lake. Most of the city is reminiscent of France (which nearly surrounds it) although the more bohemian Carouge district draws plenty of locals thanks to its Mediterranean atmosphere. An hour's drive away, Mont Blanc (the Alps' highest peak) is easy to spot.

Humanitarian Geneva

There's a reason Geneva is associated with human rights. You can find exhibitions devoted to humanitarian efforts at the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum, and the Palace of Nations.

The Palace of Nations was built to host the League of Nations, and has housed much of the United Nations since 1946, although Switzerland itself didn't become a UN member until 2002. Welcoming more than 25,000 delegates for over 10,000 intergovernmental meetings annually, this important complex is also home to many works of art, including some of the meeting rooms themselves.

If you only have time for one spot in central Switzerland, make it Lucerne. This charming lakeside town offers a memorable mountain panorama. The town's standout landmark is the 12th century Chapel Bridge (Europe's oldest covered bridge), which runs past the unique octagonal Water Tower. Visitors also tend to make a beeline for the Lion Monument, carved into a cliff, which commemorates the Swiss Guards who sacrificed their lives for the royal family during the French Revolution. Make sure to stop by the lesser-known covered Spreuer Bridge, with its Danse Macabre plaques. If you're fond of classical music, you're more than in luck, as the city offers frequent performances.

Switzerland's largest city and main hub, Zurich is where many of the nation's bankers and scholars bump shoulders. This cosmopolitan city ranks highly in terms of livability, but for all its wealth and global prestige, the Old Town remains charming, if almost spotless. The ridges flanking Zurich's river valley offer romantic views, but the best way to hit the ground running in Zurich is to follow the river itself as it cuts through the Old Town, then meets Lake Zurich. Along the way, indulge in detours, from upscale chocolatiers to low-stress beaches.

Hike the Hill

Suggestion to explore on your own

Zurich has its own hill, the Uetliberg, which offers great views amid green majesty. You can easily reach it by train from Zurich's main station, or by taking a streetcar from the Fifa World Football Museum. Choosing the latter option will let you add an easy 20-minute hike to the top, following the "Planetenweg" ("Planets Path") route, although there are several others to try. As the name implies, the route passes models of the planets (each meter equals one million kilometers), so you can get a feel for the solar system's true size. Once you're above the city, enjoy the hill's panorama, and refreshing air and nature.
