What You Can Expect

Culinary Tour from Zurich with Traditional Swiss Cheese Fondue Dinner

Take a tour of Zurich before heading to a restaurant to sample cheese fondue

Make your own way to a central Zurich location and board a comfortable minibus destined for the rural mountains of the region. Receive an introduction to Swiss cuisine from your guide and admire the countryside as you travel along the Sihl River. 

Pass Zurich’s business district and arrive at Kilchberg, a charming town located on the banks of Lake Zurich. Disembark to try the treats within the Lindt Chocolate Factory outlet and purchase delectable souvenirs in the gift shop. 

Travel onward to Adliswill to climb aboard a cable car traveling 2,630 feet (800 meters) up to Felsenegg, a vertiginous vantage point cradled by the Albis mountain range. Take a short hike through the dense forest and then settle into the terrace of a gourmet restaurant. 

Sip an aromatic glass of glühwein (spicy mulled wine) in winter or a crisp glass of white wine in summer and watch the sunset over Lake Zurich. 

Feast on a traditional banquet of crisp salad, Swiss cheese fondue and homemade chocolate cake and then return to your minivan. Relax during the journey back to Zurich, where the tour concludes.

I had such an amazing experience. We had this tour with my boyfriend for our anniversary and it was the best choice!! ! Such a nice place, cozy, staff hyper friendly, they even explained us how to eat the fondue :) Lot of food! Go hungry!!! Amazing views from the Felsenneg Car. I just loved the tour, the cheese, the restaurant, the view, and Zurich!! Would highly recommend to everyone wanting to do something special.

Great dinner overlooking Zurich. On a clear evening you can see the Alps in the distance. Great start with a visit to the Lindt Chocolate Outlet Store.

The two of us thoroughly enjoyed this afternoon/evening tour. It was just the right amount of guided time while still leaving us to explore in the morning on our own before we met up with the group.

Monika was our tour guide and her knowledge of Zurich was apparent in the thoughtful facts she shared about her city as well as knowing how to reroute the tour on a moment's notice when holiday traffic would have cause substantial delays in the city portion of the drive. Cool as a cucumber!

The tour itself was well paced. We drove out of town and to the chocolate factory outlet. Despite not being about to see the factory itself for health reasons, the store didn't disappoint. Lindt had just set up their holiday store as well which meant 2x the chocolate, the samples, and the joys of chocolate outlets. As this was only a shopping outing, we didn't spend too much time there but had enough to stock up on holiday gifts. (Pro tip: the lower store had a discount voucher to use at the holiday shop, so go there first for 10% off your purchase in the winter wonderland of chocolate!)

Beautiful views of the lake as we made our way to the cable car. Riding up the mountain at twilight meant terrific city views. We arrived at our dinner spot and were greeted outside by folks with mulled wine and appetizers. We took our time getting inside and then settled in for dinner.

Family-style around a table, we all shared a few pots of fondue, salad, and dessert. The service here was excellent and this was hands down the best cheese fondue either of us has ever had. True to Swiss culture, this meal was shared openly as a group and was not rushed. Monika made recommendations for wine pairings (at an optional fee) which I'm glad we took.

We returned down the cable car, into the shuttle, and fought off the food coma long enough to hear Monika's city tour as we returned to the car park. Smiles on our faces, warm food in our stomachs, and holiday shopping nearly complete! Highly recommend.

Our tour guide was really knowledgeable and since this was a small group, the guide tailored the trip to the guests. It includes a quick trip to the Lindt outlet where our guide showed us how to tell which chocolates were made locally and purchases could be made.

The dinner is at Felsenegg which is the same hilltop restaurant you visit on the Zurich City Highlight tour. A heavy mist had settled in at the hilltop making the evening seem a little magical. The appetizers and mulled wine outside started the meal. Then inside sitting family-style, our tour guide showed us how to enjoy a fondue dinner making sure not to lose our bread in the cheese. No one had to do dishes!

This was a good tour, but the fondue was only average for the cost. The tour guide was excellent and the gondolla ride was great..
