12 Day Select Holiday

Wonderful sightseeing beckons with soaring mountains and glassy lakes as we blend the beauty of Austria with the chocolate box scenery of Switzerland and the enchanting magic of a German fairytale castle. Our base is medieval Feldkirch, a historic Austrian town nestling near the border with Lichtenstein and home to majestic Shattenburg Castle and the landmark Katzenturm tower. We call at William Tell’s Altdorf and pop into glamorous St Moritz where the remnants of St Mauritius Church have left this glitzy resort with a remarkable leaning tower. The treats keep coming with a visit to magnificent Neuschwanstein palace - the inspiration for Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty Castle. We also embark on the tantalising train journeys that showcase sensational scenery and make this holiday both unforgettable and extra special!

Your Holiday Itinerary

Day One. We travel to our overnight ferry to the continent enjoying dinner, entertainment and breakfast on board.

Day Two. We make our way to our dinner, bed and breakfast stop on the continent.

Day Three. We continue to the Hotel Weisses Kreuz for our five night dinner, bed and breakfast stay. Enjoy a welcome drink of Grub Gott and receive an information pack with a local map.

Day Four. Our outing today takes us through the Southern Alps to Grisons, the largest of the Swiss cantons. We then travel via the breathtaking Julier Pass to St Moritz. From here, it’s onwards over the Bernina Pass to Tirano in Italy where we board the panoramic carriages of the famous Bernina-Express for an unforgettable ride through the gorgeous scenery of the Albula Pass to Tiefencastel.

Day Five. Today we enjoy a guided tour of Feldkirch, the medieval city of the Counts of Montfort. We take in the narrow alleys and squares as well as the interesting museum and the imposing Schattenburg castle. Afterwards, continue exploring at your own pace, relax in a café or browse the shops.

Day Six. Our day begins with a scenic drive passing the glassy lakes of Walen and Lucerne reaching Altdorf, the hometown of William Tell and where we learn about its famous, fabled son. Continuing to Andermatt, we board the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn and travel in panoramic carriages along the tracks of the Glacier Express - the most famous railway in the world - taking in incomparable vistas as we coast towards Chur.

Day Seven. Today we wind our way though stunning lake and mountain scenery to the German city of Fussen. Here we are treated to a tour of Neuschwanstein Castle – the Romanesque Revival palace that was the inspiration for Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty Castle and has also appeared in movies such as Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and The Great Escape. Afterwards, enjoy some free time in Fussen.

Day Eight. Look forward to receiving a wee souvenir of Austria from your hosts as we check out and make our way to our dinner, bed and breakfast stop. 

Day Nine. We continue to our ferry back to the UK with dinner, entertainment and breakfast on board.
