0 / 5 total 0 reviews
Duration: 10 hours
Product code: 4376
Overview

On a scenic route, crossing the Albis Pass and through beautiful landscapes along the shores of the Lake of the Four Cantons reach the charming town of Lucerne.

Enjoy the drive while your guide narrates about the interesting Swiss history and points out the most remarkable landmarks.

Take in the views during a short photo stop en route and enjoy a brief orientation drive in Lucerne, where your guide points out the main attractions of this charming town like the Chapel Bridge, the Town Hall, the Jesuit Church and the Culture and Congress Centre.

Enjoy then some leisure time to shop some souvenirs and to explore the quaint Old Town on your own.

The journey continues to Engelberg, a typical Swiss alpine village located in the sunny basin under the north-face of Mt. Titlis. Surrounded by majestic mountains, the village was originally founded by Benedictine monks.

Their imposing Baroque-style monastery with the largest organ in Switzerland still dominates the centre.

Stroll around the village, visit the monastery with its cheese making facilities or hike one of the well-prepared trails in the beautiful surroundings during your approximately three hours leisure time.

In the late afternoon, return via Lucerne to Zürich.
