Select Switzerland's Legendary Train Journeys & Bavaria's Sleeping Beauty Castle
12 Day Select Holiday
Wonderful sightseeing beckons with soaring mountains and glassy lakes as we blend the beauty of Austria with the chocolate box scenery of Switzerland and the enchanting magic of a German fairytale castle. Our base is medieval Feldkirch, a historic Austrian town nestling near the border with Lichtenstein and home to majestic Shattenburg Castle and the landmark Katzenturm tower. We call at William Tell’s Altdorf and pop into glamorous St Moritz where the remnants of St Mauritius Church have left this glitzy resort with a remarkable leaning tower. The treats keep coming with a visit to magnificent Neuschwanstein palace - the inspiration for Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty Castle. We also embark on the tantalising train journeys that showcase sensational scenery and make this holiday both unforgettable and extra special!
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
