This Best of Austria & Switzerland tour covers the highlights of two of Europe’s most scenic countries: Austria and Switzerland. You’ll spend two nights each in Vienna, Salzburg, Zermatt, and Lucerne, and overnights in St. Moritz and Berne. If you’re a fan of palaces and castles, you’ll enjoy a visit to Vienna’s Schönbrunn Palace, once the home of the Habsburg Imperial family. Stand in awe as you hear the stories of this royal family’s home. You’ll also enjoy a visit to romantic Chillon Castle, a well-preserved, medieval castle on the shores of Lake Geneva.

If spectacular scenery is your interest, then you’ll be thrilled with the ride on the world-famous Glacier Express train, where you’ll travel first-class and have panorama windows to admire the thundering waterfalls, impressive peaks, glacial ice fields, and tiny villages on your way to Zermatt, a picturesque cluster of rustic chalets beneath the majestic Matterhorn. This is a special treat Globus includes to make sure your tour is all you want it to be. Other scenic highlights include a Danube cruise along the prettiest part of the river; a private boat cruise on the fjord-like lake in Lucerne; a mountain train ride from Zermatt to Täsch; a scenic drive into the Swiss Engadine, considered by many to be the most beautiful mountain area in the world; a drive through the Tyrolean Alps on the way to Innsbruck; a stop in Interlaken, where you can take pictures of the Jungfrau massif; and more.

These are just a few of the many highlights of this Austria & Switzerland tour. You’ll also enjoy guided sightseeing in Vienna, Salzburg, and Berne. From the historical sights, castles, and palaces to the spectacular scenery, this is a dream vacation!
