This full-day excursion combines two exciting sights. It starts with a tour of Zurich with a short walk. You will be introduced to the largest financial metropolis in Switzerland. In the afternoon, the impressive Rhine Falls at Schloss Laufen are on the agenda

The tour starts from the bus terminal Sihlquai behind the main station in Zurich. With a comfortable coach you will pass the castle-like National Museum to the shopping mile Bahnhofstrasse and the world-famous Zurich financial district

A photo stop is made at Lake Zurich before the Dolder rack railroad takes you up to the Zürichberg district. Here you will find the renowned 5-star hotel The Dolder Grand, surrounded by imposing villas from times gone by. Here you can enjoy a unique view of the city, Lake Zurich and the snow-capped mountains.

The journey continues by coach to the university district. The world-famous Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich) is located here. On foot you will explore the charming old town together with the tour guide. From the Kunsthaus you will walk to patriarchal guild houses and through winding alleys. Highlights are the largest clock face in Europe on the church tower of St. Peter and the famous colored windows by Marc Chagall in the Fraumünster

Afterwards the coach will take you back to the starting point. After a short lunch break the tour continues from here. The journey takes you on the route "Grand Tour of Switzerland" past a wine-growing area with its pretty farming villages

At Schloss Laufen, which has been enthroned high above the Rhine Falls for over 1000 years, you will descend to the waterfall by glass elevator. A short walk along the panoramic path leads you to the viewing platform "Känzeli". On an optional boat trip you can experience the roaring and foaming Rhine Falls up close (only in summer).

Finally, a visit to a medieval town is on the program. Located directly on the Rhine, not far from Lake Constance, is the picturesque Stein am Rhein. Winding alleys, crooked half-timbered houses and extraordinary frescoes await you here

In the evening, the coach will take you back to the departure point, where the tour ends.
