Enjoy a nine-night journey of discovery through the heart of the Alps and along the storied Rhine River via a unique combination of rail and river travel. Spend four days exploring Europe’s most majestic scenery from the idyllic Swiss resorts of Zermatt and Lucerne. On three rail journeys, view the ice-carved pinnacle of the Matterhorn from the Gornergrat Bahn, cross the mountainous backbone of Switzerland aboard the celebrated Glacier Express, and ride a cog railway up Mount Pilatus for panoramic vistas of Lake Lucerne. Enjoy accommodations in Zermatt’s traditional, chalet-style Hotel Schweizerhof and Lucerne’s elegant, Victorian Hotel Schweizerhof.
Travel overland from Lucerne through the verdant countryside and lake district of Switzerland to Basel and cruise to Frankfurt, Germany, aboard the deluxe M.S. AMADEUS PRINCESS, one of the finest ships sailing Europe’s waterways. View the treasures of a river that has functioned as the cultural crossroads of half a continent, the meeting point of the Latin and Germanic worlds. Walk where Roman legionaries once marched; stroll the narrow streets of medieval university towns, where students still preserve the traditions of the past; stand before the twin spires of Cologne Cathedral, a monument from the Age of Faith; and relax in a streetside café over a refreshing glass of Riesling, the Rhine’s famous white wine.
