What you can expect

Embark on a visually stunning tour of northern Switzerland that takes you to the crashing waters of Rhine Falls and the well-preserved medieval village of Stein am Rhein. Enjoy ample photo opportunities in the Swiss countryside and pay a visit to a charming castle historically rich excursion.

After pickup from the Sihlquai Bus Terminal in Zürich , enjoy a relaxing ride alongside gently rolling vineyards and through quaint farming villages to Laufen Castle. Dating back to the Old Zürich War of the mid-1400s, this fairytale castle is a Swiss Heritage Site perched above the tumbling cascades of Rhine Falls, where you head next. Take in spectacular views of immense volumes of water tumbling over a 450-foot-wide (150-m) cliff and crashing into wide pools below. Feel the waterfall's mighty rumble and gentle mist in your face while standing on a viewing platform right above it.

Your last stop is Stein am Rhein, a medieval town filled with well-preserved churches and distinctive timberframe houses. Take a guided stroll and admire houses adorned with colourful frescoes, all while learning a little about the village's history, and then settle back into the coach for the ride back to Zürich.
