A visit from Luzern to Zurich, Rhine Falls and Stein am Rhine
This full day driving tour will show guests many different topics ranging from Switzerland's largest city, Europe's biggest waterfall and one of Switzerland's most important historical towns.
Before reaching Zürich, we'll call in at Switzerland's most famous chocolate brand, the Lindt factory in Kirchberg where one can experience a chocolate course (let me know for more info) and certainly visit the Factory shop for some discounted chocolate.
We'll drive the 15mins and park up and visit the highlights of Zürich city centre including the world famous Bahnhofstrasse with its high end stores and the Old Town, Niederdorf and it's famous old churches.
Afterwards comes the roaring Rhine Falls, where it's possible to enjoy spectacular views from the panoramic trail and feel the spindrift of the rumbling waters on an optional boat ride (summer only) taking you close to the falls. Continue to the medieval town of Stein am Rhein and learn about the well-preserved Old Town on a guided stroll.
I'll pick you from your Luzern hotel and drive you to the Lindt chocolate factory. Next stop, just 15 mins away will be Zürich where we'll send a couple of hours visiting the key sites. Should the weather be against us, there are several impressive museums such as the National Museum and the FIFA football museum to name but two.
We'll have lunch at one of several restaurants and then journey north to the Swiss German border and land at the Rhine Falls for an hour to view the millions of gallons of water cascading over the Falls to the basin below (please bring a rain jacket)
Lastly the drive continues through vineyards and scenic countryside to the historic Stein am Rhein and perhaps visit one of 3 Museums, St. George's Abbey, the former Benedictine monastery or Hohenklingen Castle on the hilltop overlooking the town, dating back to the middle ages.
