north. See Zürich, Switzerland’s cultural and economic centre, visit the stunning Rhine Falls, Europe’s biggest
waterfall, and the medieval town of Stein am Rhein.
Listen to your multilingual guide explaining Switzerland’s interesting history and culture on the drive to

Chocolate Shop a great shopping opportunity awaits you. Browse the immense assortment and buy some of
the most delicious Swiss chocolate as a gift for your friends and families back home. On a short Zürich city

picturesque landscapes with gently rolling vineyards and charming farming villages. Reach one of Switzerland’s
major attractions at the medieval castle Laufen and enjoy approx. 1 hour at the mighty Rhine Falls – Europe’s
