Switzerland's Legendary Train Journeys
10 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 fairytale fortress. 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. You will feel surrounded by history as you wander the winding alleys of its Old Town that lead to secluded gardens and a bustling market square. We 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 Castle, a nineteenth century historic palace, perched on the rugged foothills of the Alps and the inspiration for Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty Castle. We also embark on the spectacular train journeys that showcase sensational scenery and make this holiday unforgettable and extra special!
