Here, at the amazing Jungfraujoch, Europe's highest railway station at 11,332 feet, experience the Alpine Sensation, the Ice Palace, and you can also take the elevator to the Sphinx Observatory. Don’t forget to pick up your souvenir “Jungfrau passport”. It's an unforgettable experience!
Another special experience arranged by Globus is a visit to the magnificent castle in Gruyères, where you’ll walk through eight centuries of architecture, history, and culture. A lunch with local specialties and a traditional dessert of meringue and double crème has been included.
You'll also spend time in Berne, Switzerland’s capital, and Geneva, Switzerland's most international city, which has a fantastic lakeside setting and breathtaking panoramas of the Alps. Enjoy a chocolate tasting at the famous Maison Cailler in Broc, and stop for an orientation in Gstaad, one of Switzerland's most famous skiing resorts. A walking tour in Lucerne includes Chapel Bridge, a picturesque wooden bridge and the impressive Lion Monument. See the iconic Golden Roof in Innsbruck, Austria, and Munich’s Marienplatz. In the charming village of Oberammergau, see the world-famous Passion Play, performed only once a decade by Oberammergau residents.
These are just a few of the highlights on this Spectacular Switzerland tour with Oberammergau. It's a holiday of a lifetime.
