Overview

Operated by ?

This Best of Austria and Switzerland tour with Oberammergau covers the highlights of three of Europe's most scenic countries: Austria, Switzerland, and Germany. Spend two nights each in Vienna, Salzburg, Zermatt, and Lucerne, and an overnight in St. Moritz, Berne, Innsbruck, Oberammergau, and Munich.

If you're a fan of palaces and castles, you'll enjoy a visit to Vienna’s Schönbrunn Palace, once the home of the Habsburg family. Stand in awe as you hear the stories of this royal family's home. You'll also enjoy a visit to romantic Chillon Castle, a well-preserved, medieval castle on the shores of Lake Geneva.

If spectacular scenery interests you, then you'll be thrilled with the ride on the world-famous Glacier Express train, where you'll travel first-class and have panoramic windows to admire the thundering waterfalls, impressive peaks, glacial ice fields, and tiny villages on your way to Zermatt, a picturesque cluster of rustic chalets beneath the majestic Matterhorn. This is a special treat Globus includes to make sure your tour is all you want it to be. Other scenic highlights include a Danube cruise along the prettiest part of the river; a private boat cruise on the fjord-lake in Lucerne (another special treat offered by Globus); a mountain train ride from Zermatt to Täsch; a scenic drive into the Swiss Engadine, considered by many to be the world’s most beautiful mountain area; a stop in Interlaken, where you can take pictures of the Jungfrau Massif with its three famous peaks; and more.

Plus, enjoy first-class seats to the world-famous Passion Play in Oberammergau, performed every 10 years by Oberammergau residents. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

These are just a few of the many highlights of this Austria and Switzerland tour. From the historical sights, castles, and palaces to the spectacular scenery, this is a dream vacation!

By June 2021, your vacation, which includes the Oberammergau Passion Play, requires a per-person, non-refundable deposit of £480. Prior to June 2021, a minimum of £200 non-refundable per person deposit is required to secure your reservation and tickets for the play.
