What To Expect
See the fantastic nature spectacle Rhine Falls, Europe's biggest waterfall. Experience the thrill of this sublime natural phenomenon by taking a boat ride close to the falls (optional). The journey takes you to Northern Switzerland, close to the German border. You drive through Schaffhausen, capital of the canton under the same name with its famous Munot Fortress, from the 16th C. On our way to the falls we will also pass through some small, typical winegrowers villages located in the important Wine-Region of Northern Switzerland. On our way back to Zurich we take a route passing through German territory.
The City Tour takes us first through the upcoming, trendy district of Zürich West. Learn about the interesting history of the world famous engineering companies of the past century like Escher Wyss, Sulzer and Maag.
Did you know that the first Swiss Railway crossed this part of the town on the way from Zürich to Baden? Today you can find in the abandoned industrial buildings some of the hottest clubs in town, interesting museums, theaters and shops of trendy fashion brands.
Via the University and the Museum of Art we get right into the heart of the Old Town. Passing by the lovely Limmatquai and the Fraumünster Church we finally reach the beautiful Lake Zürich.
During the summer, take a short lovely walk along the shore of the lake. At the ship station board the boat for a comfortable excursion around Lake Zürich. Relax and enjoy the beautiful landscape on this remarkable one hour ride back to Zürich!
During the winter, enjoy great views over the city, the lake and the alps from the viewpoint Waid and warm yourself up with a hot non-alcoholic Orange Punch. Drive to beautiful Lake Zürich for a photo stop.
