Tour Itinerary

Discover the beating heart of Switzerland with captivating Lucerne as your base. You'll savour mild Emmentaler cheese flavours, create your own chocolate and delve into the medieval heritage of this picture-book town.

Day 1 - Arrive Zurich – Lucerne (5 Nights)
Straight out of a fairy tale, the beautiful lakeside setting of Lucerne is the perfect base from which to explore the heart of Switzerland. On arrival in Zurich, you'll be transferred to your home for the next five nights with some free time to indulge in its romantic surrounds before joining your Travel Director and fellow travellers this evening for a Welcome Reception. We'll stay at one of Trafalgar's 'Stays With Stories' - the Grand Hotel Europe promising sweeping lake vistas.
Accommodation: Grand Europe
Meals: Welcome Reception

Day 2 - Lucerne Sightseeing
Delve into Lucerne's heritage as a quiet Alpine retreat for aristocrats and even royalty, who sought refuge in their tranquil natural surrounds. Join a Local Specialist who will introduce you to such sights as the flower-lined 14th-century wooden Chapel Bridge, the poignant Lion Monument, built as a tribute to the brave Swiss Guards who died defending French King Louis XVI and the impressive city walls. Consider joining an Optional Experience ascending Mount Pilatus by cable car for spectacular views of Lake Lucerne.

Day 3 - Lucerne – Excursions to Bilten and Einsiedelen
What could be more Swiss than a melt-in-your-mouth chocolate experience? Today we journey to Bilten and visit Läderach Chocolatier. 'Dive Into Culture' and gain insights into the delicate art of crafting Swiss chocolate during a workshop tour. Create your own moreish delights before your journey continues to the Alpine town of Einsiedeln. Here we'll visit the Abbey, a major resting point on the Way of St. James, which pilgrims have been visiting for over a thousand years. We return to Lucerne for an evening at leisure.
Meals: Breakfast

Day 4 - Lucerne – Excursion to Sonnenberg Bunker
Switzerland is renowned for its military defences. Today you'll have the opportunity to see this first-hand on a guided visit to Sonnenberg bunker, a highlight attraction in the city. This giant bunker, built at the height of the Cold War, was capable of accommodating over 20,000 people. The rest of the day is yours to explore Lucerne on your own terms. Take a stroll along the banks of the Reuss and admire the tall painted houses that line quiet squares tucked away amidst the medieval Altstadt's cobblestone lanes. You'll have plenty of time to shop for souvenirs, from chocolates and watches to Swiss Army Knives.

The creamy flavours of Emmental cheese are yours to enjoy today during an included excursion to the Emmentaler Show Dairy. Farmers from the surrounding villages bring their fresh milk to the dairy which processes this much-loved mild cheese now sold all over the world. 'Dive Into Culture' and discover the secret of Emmentaler's famous holes and sample some of the local produce. This afternoon, consider taking an optional horse and carriage ride to admire your epic natural surrounds before returning to Lucerne for a Farewell Dinner with new friends.

Questions & Answers

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.
