Summary of The Day: Sit back and relax on a comfortable coach while listening to your multilingual guide introduce Switzerland's interesting history and culture. The journey takes you along the Grand Tour of Switzerland through picturesque landscape with gently rolling vineyards and charming villages near the German border, ultimately arriving at the splendid medieval Castle Laufen!
Enjoy approximately one-hour leisure time at the mighty Rhine Falls, one of Switzerland's major attractions. Delight in unique views of Europe's biggest waterfall from the panoramic lift and see how an average of 700,000 liters of water per second plunge across a width of 150 meters into the basin below. A beautiful, short stroll on the Belvedere panoramic trail takes you to the viewing platform right above the falls where you will feel the spindrift of the rumbling waters. Capture stunning photographs of the cataract, the fizzy waters of the basin below and the natural beauty of the surrounding area. Visit the Historama at the patriarchal castle to learn more about the interesting history of this unique place.
We'll continue via Schaffhausen with its famous Munot Fortress, passing through the beautiful countryside to the medieval town of Stein am Rhein. On your guided stroll, you learn about the well-preserved town with its many distinctive buildings. Most of these half-timbered houses are made of stone with delicate wooden windows and exceptional frescoes. The most prominent of these houses is the White Eagle, whose fresco counts as the oldest preserved mural painting of the Renaissance in Switzerland.
After some leisure time, we'll drive back to Zurich, returning at approximately 6:30pm.
