Continue your scenic journey to Montreux via the Glacier Express. From Montreux, board the Golden Pass train and travel to the stunning chalet town of Gstaad. Located in Bernese Oberlaand, Gstaad is another major ski destination and known for its breathtaking alpine scenery. After your tour of Gstaad, you have some free time to explore Montreux before continuing to Neuchatel, a charming town filled with rich history and culture. Explore its beautiful Old town packed with historic buildings, fountains, museums and the stunning Castle of Neuchatel. From Neuchatel, venture to the valley of La Brevine, known as “Switzerland’s Siberia”. Your last stop is the beautiful city of Bern, Switzerland’s de facto capital, known for its UNESCO World Heritage Site-inscribed old town.
This tour is available daily from 14 December 2019 to 28 March 2020.
Enjoy breakfast at your hotel. Then, make your way to the station for your train journey to Montreux. The Glacier Express may not be the quickest route but certainly the most scenic with breath-taking views along the way.
This morning, you will have some time to explore Montreux at leisure. In the afternoon, board a train for the short transfer to Neuchâtel.
Not far from Neuchâtel you will find the mystical valley of La Brévine where temperatures in winter have been known to drop to -40°C! Warm up with a short winter walking trail (approx. 3km) which passes many typical farmhouses and the lake, Lac des Tailleres. After braving the cold, pick-up your ‘ice diploma’ at one of the restaurants in the valley and indulge in some local specialties.
After breakfast, take a short rail transfer to Bern, Switzerland’s capital. Easily explored on foot, the city centre feels like a step back in time with its cobbled streets, water fountains and 15th century buildings. Be sure to visit one of the cellar restaurants for an atmospheric dining experience.
Breakfast at your hotel. If your flight time allows do some last-minute souvenir shopping in the quirky shops located in the ‘Lauben’ – Bern’s covered walkways. Depart Bern - rail transfer to the Zürich airport or continue your holiday in Switzerland.
