Day 1

Following our Channel crossing to Calais, we complete the journey to our overnight dinner, bed and breakfast accommodation.

Day 2

We complete the journey to Austria and the resort of Feldkirch where we stay for the next five nights, with a welcome drink on arrival.

Day 3

After breakfast we take a journey into neighbouring Switzerland, to the city of Schaffhausen, home to the famous watch company IWC. From here we’ll travel the Rhine Falls, the widest waterfalls in Europe, stretching some 490 feet. Here we’ll board a boat to take us directly to the cool spray of the falls to feel the power of the water. From here we continue on to Steim am Rhein, an area famous for its painted half-timbered houses, then on to Ermatigen with its chateau Schloss Arenenberg - the Napoleon Museum.

Day 4

Leaving our hotel this morning, we travel along Lake Walen with the peaks of the Churfirsten Mountains towering above, travelling through Einsiedeln with a short stop at the large baroque monastery. We continue on to Lake Lucerne, and from Vitznau take the rack railway up the Rigi-Kulm - definitely a highlight of the holiday. From here you will have an unbelievable panoramic view of the Swiss mountains and lakes. Afterwards continue over the Axenstraße, the most beautiful part of the lake to Altdorf, the birthplace of Wilhelm Tell.

Day 5

Today we are off to Lake Constance, which borders Germany, Switzerland and Austria. In Bregenz (Austria) we’ll board a ship and head for Lindau, the German city on an island and continue past Friedrichshafen to Meersburg - here you‘ll tour the old town. We’ll re-join our coach and make our way to neighbouring Hagnau, where in the Vinter’s Association, you’ll learn what
makes the wine from Lake Constance so good as well as trying some for yourselves. Finally we’ll make our way to Birnau, possibly the most beautiful baroque church on Lake Constance.

Day 6

Today we travel to Appenzell, the canton or region especially known for its aromatic cheese. We’ll start the day off with a cable car ride on the Hoher Kasten to a height of 1,795m above sea level. From the top you will have a spectacular view of Lake Constance, the Rhine Valley, Appenzell and the Austrian mountains - you may even be able to see our hotel! Later we’ll visit the Locher Brewery for a tour and tasting of Appenzeller Beer.
