About the tour

What’s included


Day 1 - London and Cologne

We meet out Tour Manager at London St Pancras before boarding the Eurostar to Brussels. Here we change trains and continue to Cologne for the night.

  • Dinner
Day 2 - Cologne to Interlaken

Departing Cologne after breakfast, we journey into Switzerland travelling by train along the scenic Rhine Gorge. This wonderful stretch of German valleys and the gentle Rhine River as it winds its way between fairytale castles, steep cliffs, and deep forests.

Our destination is Interlaken, in the heart of the Bernese Oberland, one of the most beautiful regions in the Swiss Alps. This remarkable town is found on a stretch of land between the Lakes Thun and Brienz and lies in a beautiful valley watched over by the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau mountains. During your time here, it is worth experiencing a boat ride across one of the 2 lakes, a serene and tranquil journey which allows you to make the most of Interlaken's unique position under the Alps.

  • Breakfast, Dinner
Days 3-4 - Mürren and Schilthorn

Today we travel by train to the picturesque mountain village of Mürren. On arrival in the traffic-free village, we continue into the mountains by cable car, ascending to the peak of the mighty Schilthorn. Once at the summit, you can take in the superb views of the Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau mountains. We return to Mürren and enjoy some free time, before returning to Interlaken where you have the rest of the day free. Day 4 is also free in Interlaken.

  • Day 3 - Breakfast, Dinner
  • Day 4 - Breakfast
Day 5 - Grindelwald

We travel to the pretty Alpine village of Grindelwald, a delightful town nestled at the foot of the imposing north face of the Eiger. Take some time to admire the attractive wooden chalets and the squares which combine the old comforts of classic Alpine architecture with the contemporary winter sports facilities. You are then free to explore the village and perhaps enjoy lunch before we return to Interlaken.

  • Breakfast, Dinner
Day 6 - The Jungfrau Railway

Today, we travel on the Jungfrau Railway to Jungfraujoch - Europe's highest railway station at 11,333 feet. Upwards we go through a spectacular route climbing the Jungfrau Mountain on an increasingly complex series of spirals and over a range of impressive bridges. Enjoy extravagant views of the mountains below, showered in snow and covered in misty clouds.

On arrival at Jungfraujoch, you have plenty of free time. You may wish to sample the food in the restaurant or visit the Ice Palace which has stood proud since the 1930s. Why not view the Aletsch Glacier from one of the viewing platforms? A 12-mile river of ice, with its labyrinth of ice caves and sculptures carved inside. This striking geological wonder winds its way down from the Jungfrau region through to the Massa Gorge covering around 2,500 metres in height. Later, we return to Interlaken via the mountain resort of Grindelwald
