This morning we continue our journey to our hotel Weisses Kreuz in Feldkirch. On arrival we will be welcomed with a delicious winter punch and some information on the area, with a map included to help us get the most out of our stay.

Day 3

After breakfast we visit Klosters, the elegant chalet-style village which is Prince Charles’ favourite ski-resort, and Davos, the highest city in Europe. Why not catch the cog railway as it zips up to Schatzalp, a recreation area on the slopes to the west of the town. On our journey back to the hotel we will pass the vineyards of the Bündner Herrschaft before calling into Vaduz, the capital city of the Principality of Liechtenstein, for free time. Don’t be fooled by this postage-stamp sized city! Hugging the banks of the Rhine and crowned by a turreted castle its location is visually stunning and some of the prince’s very fine wines are also stored here!

Day 4

Our first journey today will take us through Dornbirn and snowy Bregenzerwald. Sit back and relax on board as we enjoy the breathtaking views of the beautiful and lush landscape of the forest. Arriving in Hittisau, a sleigh will be waiting to take us on a romantic trip through the snowy hillside with a home-distilled schnapps served. Afterwards, we will visit Schwarzenberg. Located in the picturesque Bregenzerwald Forest, this charming destination is considered one of the nicest villages in the area. Later, we will take you to Dornbirn, where we will visit the world’s largest Rolls-Royce Museum before returning to our hotel.

Day 5

Today we travel to Andermatt, where we will board the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn and travel in the panoramic carrigaes of the original Glacier-Express*. On this incredible journey you will enjoy spectacular views as we travel through the Oberalp Pass and the breathtaking Rhine Gorge before reaching Chur, where our coach will be waiting to collect you and take you back to the hotel.
