We visit the vibrant city of Zurich for time to explore and browse the festive market stalls. Look in the foyer of the main train station, where there are traditional stalls as well as a sparking Christmas tree, decorated with Swarovski crystal snowflakes. Take a stroll to the lovely old town and savour some of the seasonal foods on offer.
We’ll call at the city of Basel, a city on the border of Switzerland, France and Germany. Take a walk along the bustling streets and see some of the festive stalls around Barfusserplatz, where you can try some of the traditional Swiss cheese treats, such as fondue or raclette.
Join us as we visit the charming Swiss capital of Bern. Enjoy a stroll along the narrow streets and winding alleys of the city and soak up the festive atmosphere at the little stalls around the Cathedral Square and Waisenhausplatz. Look out for regional crafts and enjoy the scents of traditional gingerbreads and mulled wine.
The popular Seehotel Pilatus has a great location on the lakeside, excellent leisure facilities and a pleasant relaxing garden with lake views for guests to enjoy.
