German and Swiss holidays
Romantic castles, deep forests, glittering rivers, snow-veiled mountains – our German holidays and Switzerland tours unfurl two of Europe’s most ravishingly beautiful lands. Sitting in the heart of the continent, both countries join hands in the scenery stakes, seamlessly passing the baton of wondrous landscapes and half-timbered towns on to each other.
We’ve designed our German tours and Switzerland holidays to showcase the best of both countries. From cruises along the entrancing Rhine to rail tours through Switzerland’s Alps and tours of Germany’s great cities, we have the perfect German holiday and Switzerland tours for you, whatever your tastes or preferred mode of travel.
Highlights of our German tours
If your ideal German holiday involves exploring its historic cities, our German tours deliver. Gaze at the mighty Brandenburg Gate and poignant Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin. Sip a foaming beer in the cheerful beer gardens of Munich. And admire Cologne’s mammoth twin-spired Cathedral, a hymn to Gothic finery.
Another sort of holiday in Germany awaits further south. Travel the stunning Romantic Road, passing vine-clad hills and visiting olde-worlde Rothenburg. Marvel at fairytale Neuschwantein Castle high on a hilltop. And head into the Black Forest, home of woodcarvings and the legendary chocolate-and-cherry gateau.
And for the classic German holiday, look no further than our Rhine cruises. Soak up the breathtaking Rhine Gorge, passing picturebook castles and exploring well-preserved medieval towns like Rüdesheim. Or for a different kind of German holiday, why not cruise the Main and Main-Danube Canal, visiting chocolate-box towns such as medieval Nuremberg?
Highlights of our Switzerland holidays
Our holidays in Switzerland spotlight its staggering scenery and flower-bedecked towns. Drink in the towering Swiss Alps, riding the legendary Bernina Express and Glacier Express trains past rushing waterfalls, high mountain ridges and steep-sided valleys. Stroll around beautiful Berne and gaze out over sparkling Lake Geneva. And throw yourself into exclusive St. Moritz and medieval Lucerne – they’re yours for the taking.
And why not widen your sights? Many of our German holidays and escorted tours of Switzerland are part of our more comprehensive European itineraries. Enjoy a Main-Danube cruise calling at Nuremberg, Vienna, Prague and Budapest. Visit captivating Warsaw and Krakow along with Frankfurt and Berlin. Or take an exciting pan-European tour, exploring Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Italy and France in one unmissable holiday.
