“The tour was excellent. The Rhine falls was fabulous and the ride to the falls was very senic. Our tour guide did an excellent job. The city tour was also excellent. It gave us an excellent view of the city including a ride on the incline to the top of the city for an excellent view. ...Lee M., USA – See more reviews
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.
See the castle-like National Museum, the shopping and business center on Bahnhofstrasse, the Limmatquai with its medieval Old Town and view to the Lindenhof, where the brave women of Zurich saved the city from the invaders, the largest church clock-face of Europe on St. Peter, the patriarchal Guild Houses, the Opera house with its famous June-Festivals and the lake (picture stop).
Enjoy the great experience traveling uphill on the cog-wheel railway (Dolderbahn) into the "Zurichberg" district with its recently renovated noble five-star Grand Hotel Dolder and many superb mansions of glorious past times.
Additional highlights are the University and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich). Its most famous student and professor was Albert Einstein.
Finally, there will be a stop in the Old Town at Fraumunster Church, where you will admire the world-famous Chagall-Windows with detailed explanations. After this, your guide will invite you to a short stroll through the Old Town of Zurich.
