    Staying in the charming town of Tiefencastel in Switzerland, we’ll be welcomed at the Hotel Albula & Julier for our five-night stay. This lovely family-run hotel is ideally situated in the small village, at the entrance to the valley of the Grissons. Accommodation is in two adjacent buildings, both offering comfortable rooms.

    Our holiday will begin with an amazing experience - a ride on the Glacier Express. We’ll make our way by coach to the picturesque town of Andermatt, known for its beautiful setting in the Urseren valley. Here, we’ll embark this famous railway and will travel back to Tiefencastel, admiring the awe-inspiring views - we’ll travel over the famous Oberalp Pass and through the Domleschg Valley.

    The next day, it will be time to take a trip to the principality of Liechtenstein, the fourth smallest country in Europe. Aside from its truly beautiful scenery, Liechtenstein is also home to a fantastic number of excellent attractions, such as the Liechtenstein Art Museum, the National Museum, and Vaduz Castle, which overlooks the capital.

    After this, we’ll have another incredible train ride to look forward to. We’ll board the grand Bernina Express railway in Davos, travelling to Poschiavo during our journey and taking in some captivating views. Sit back, relax and enjoy the experience, as we experience a wonderfully unique journey!

    Bernina Express
    Bernina Express

    In Tirano, we’ll board the wonderful Bernina Express, which will provide us with an amazing way to experience the stunning Alpine scenery of the Alps. The route will take us back to Tiefencastel, and so will prove to be a novel way of travelling to our next base.

    Full Day: Liechtenstein
    We’ll make our way to the German-speaking principality of Liechtenstein today, where we’ll be able to admire Vaduz Castle as we explore the capital city. The castle is visible from all locations in Vaduz, as it’s situated atop a steep hill; it’s the residence of the current Prince of Lichtenstein. While the castle isn’t open to the public, there are many other attractions to busy ourselves with, such as the Cathedral of St. Florin and the City hall, which feature two interesting architectural styles.

    The main attraction in Lichtenstein is without a doubt the natural beauty of the location though, which we’ll be able to soak up while visiting.
