Departing from Munich, you will board the comfortable coach and will be driven across the Swiss border toward the first stop of the day: the majestic Rhine Falls.
Due to tectonic shifts in the Ice Age, the Rhine River was forced into a new riverbed over 15,000 years ago. Over a breadth of 150 meters, several hundred cubic meters of water rush into the depths at the rate of 23 meters per second. You will have over an hour leisure time before returning to the coach to continue your journey through Switzerland to the city of Zurich.
Zurich lies in the heart of Europe and at the center of Switzerland, on the northern shores of Lake Zurich. You will have approx. 4 hours to independently explore the city or join an optional extra private walking tour of the city with a local guide (at own expense) where you will visit top attractions including the medieval Old Town of Limmatquai, the Bahnhofstrasse shopping street and the National Museum. Zurich's multicultural flair and the variety of leisure activities on offer attract guests from all over the world to this “region of short routes”. More than 400,000 people live in this experience, science and business center. Thanks to Zurich's top-quality infrastructure set amidst natural surroundings, it is a popular place for study and research. For example, at Zurich University or the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH); built by Gottfried Semper from 1858 to 1864, the ETH Zürich is today associated with 21 Nobel prizewinners.
In the evening, you will return to the coach and make our way back to Munich.
