Switzerland is a mountainous Central European country, home to numerous lakes, villages and the high peaks of the Alps. Its cities contain medieval quarters, with landmarks like capital Bern’s Zytglogge clock tower and Lucerne’s wooden chapel bridge. The country is also known for its ski resorts and hiking trails. Banking and finance are key industries, and Swiss watches and chocolate are world renowned.

GENERAL INFORMATION:

Though Switzerland is located in Europe, Switzerland is not part of the European Union (so citizens from EU countries might have to pay customs when shopping in Switzerland).

Four official languages are spoken in Switzerland. Most of Switzerland consists of the German-speaking part (north and east), while the south-west speaks French, and Italian is the main language in the southern part of Switzerland.

Some, but few, people speak Romansh – however, many people speak (basic) English (at least in the areas that have tourists).

Swiss people are very friendly and quiet people.

Swiss Francs are the main currency, but Euros are accepted in many shops, as well as credit cards (though American Express is accepted in fewer shops). However, I recommend having some Swiss Francs with you at all times.

Water in Switzerland is not only drinkable from the tap, but there are also many water fountains offering fresh water (so always have an empty bottle with you to refill).

Let's indulge in Pure Nature!!

There are plenty of wine degustation events that are worth to pay attention to. The vineyard area can be found all the way between Lausanne and Montreaux.

Lauterbrunnen is a municipality in the Swiss Alps. It encompasses the village of Lauterbrunnen, set in a valley featuring rocky cliffs and the roaring, 300m-­high Staubbach Falls. Nearby, the glacial waters of Trümmelbach Falls gush through mountain crevices past viewing platforms.

Day03

Today we will have free time and if the weather is good we can do some optional activity :

Later we will explore JUNGFRAUJOCH - TOP OF EUROPE

Icy air streams across your face, snow crunches under your feet, and the view nearly takes your breath away: on one side the view of the Mittelland up to the Vosges, on the other the Aletsch glacier, bordered by four thousand metre peaks. Standing on the Jungfraujoch 3,454 metres above sea level, you can feel it with your first step: this is a different world. It's one you have to experience.

Day04

We will continue our drive towards Lucerne stopping at a various location to explore:

FIRST CLIFF WALK BY TISSOT

The alpine slops on First have a good time: they circle over alpine meadows, forests and a high waterfall. On the lookout bar at the terrace of the mountain restaurant you can guess how it feels - thrills included: the jetty protrudes 45 meters out into nowhere.

To reach it, guests first walk down the west side of the First Summit at dizzying heights: on the First Cliff Walk by Tissot, not only the view of the valley to take off is beautiful, but also the mountain side: the rocks with their layers and niches serve the Alpine sloped as a take-off and landing site.

Continue to..

Trift Bridge - A Spectacular Pedestrian Bridge

Trift Bridge is one of the most spectacular pedestrian suspension bridges of the Alps. It is 100 meters high and 170 meters long and is poised above the region of the Trift Glacier. Even reaching the bridge through the ravine by cable car is an adventure.

Difficulty:medium

Hiking time:90 minutes (each way)

Length:2.8 km (each way)

When global warming takes place the glaciers melt - some especially fast, such as the Trift Glacier. Just a few years ago the Trift Hut of the Swiss Alpine Club could be reached on foot via the glacier tongue.

In 2004 a suspension bridge was built, as the glacier was no longer high enough to take visitors to the hut. The Trift Bridge, which was modeled after Nepalese three-rope bridges, turned out to be a tourist magnet and was replaced in 2009 by a safer and more accessible bridge, which is considered to be one of the longest and highest pedestrian suspension bridges in the Alps. The gondola train, which was originally built as a freight gondola, takes passengers up to the area where the bridge is.

Later we continue our drive to Lucerne

Lucerne, a compact city in Switzerland known for its preserved medieval architecture, sits amid snowcapped mountains on Lake Lucerne. Its colorful Altstadt (Old Town) is bordered on the north by 870m Museggmauer (Musegg Wall), a 14-century rampart. The covered Kapellbrücke (Chapel Bridge), built in 1333, links the Aldstadt to the Reuss River's right bank.

The Kapellbrücke is a covered wooden footbridge spanning diagonally across the Reuss in the city of Lucerne in central Switzerland.
