    Glacier Express

    Our next railway ride will be on-board the fantastic Glacier Express, which we’ll join in Andermatt. Our journey will begin with the climb up to the top of the Oberalp Pass, which is the highest peak on the line. Surrounded by dramatic views and steep slopes, this landscape is absolutely out of this world. We’ll continue on to Chur, where we’ll alight form the train and continue by coach to Innsbruck.

    Zillertalbahn

    Our final railway journey will be on-board the Zillertalbahn, which travels through a remarkable valley in the Tyrol. Travelling on an authentic steam engine will make this journey all the more exciting, as we journey through the Gerlos Pass before departing in the town of Mayrhofen.

    Golden Pass train Summer

    We'll take a ride on this famous train line, travelling from Meiringen to Lucerne, and will be able to admire the wonderful natural scenery all about us as we travel. We'll then enjoy free time in Lucerne to explore the local area, returning to our hotel by coach.

    Interlaken
    Full Day: Interlaken and Brienz

    We’ll get to spend time in both Interlaken and Brienz today for a delightful day out, with Interlaken first on our list. This town is known for its enchanting views of the Jungfrau, which makes the most incredible backdrop to Interlaken.

    The town is located between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz, ensuring wonderful lakeside views are available, and it’s home to a number of historical sights, including the Interlaken Monastery & Castle, which features gothic architecture and has a chapel dating from 1452.

    After our time in Interlaken, we’ll make our way to the village of Brienz, which can be found on Lake Brienz’s northern shore. The village is famous for its history of wood carving, which was once the main form of industry here. These intricate carvings can still be seen in the village today, with the Brienz Wood Carving Museum being devoted to them.
