Chocolate and Cheese. Alps and Alp horns. Precision timepieces and timeless scenery. There is so much to yodel about in sweet and scenic Switzerland. With snow-dusted peaks in view from Zurich to Geneva to Lucerne, this uplifting tour of Switzerland has many elevating experiences in store. A stroll through the13th-century Gruyeres Castle, a drive through the picturesque vineyards of the 'Swiss Riviera,' and a tasting at the delectable Maison Cailler chocolate factory are just the beginning of your delightful ascent. You'll also visit the resort towns of Gstaad and Interlaken before heading via mountain train to the 'Top of Europe,' the nickname for Jungfraujoch, Europe's highest railway station at more than 11,000 feet. This Alpine wonderland of ice and snow, complete with multiple viewing terraces and an Ice Palace, is not just high in elevation-it's the highlight of this spectacular Swiss journey.
