Greet your guide at a centrally located pick up point in Zurich and climb aboard your comfortable, air-conditioned coach. Listen as your knowledgeable guide offers an interesting introduction to the city’s history and gaze out of the window at notable landmarks like Bahnhofstrass, one of the world’s most sophisticated shopping streets, and Zurich Opera House.
See, too, the National Museum before stopping at the picturesque shores of Lake Zurich. There, board a Dolderbahn (cogwheel railway) and venture to Zurichberg, a district replete with opulent mansions and luxurious hotels. Absorb sweeping city views and then explore the university quarter and its grand buildings; see the school at which Albert Einstein taught and studied, and then hear of the intriguing exhibits within Zurich’s art museum.
Capture photographs of Zurich’s charming Old Town while delving into the area’s medieval history; see the world’s largest clock face on the side of St Peter’s Church; and marvel at the prismatic stained glass windows of Fraumunster Church.
When the tour concludes, return to your original departure point by coach and bid your guide farewell.
Alternatively, for the 1pm option, you can continue your journey and upgrade to a lovely 1-hour cruise on the waters of Lake Zurich and a visit to the world-famous Chocolate Lindt Shop!
