Travel to Switzerland
Surround Yourself with Stunning, Untouched Landscapes
Switzerland, with its shimmering, turquoise waters and towering mountains, is a country that inspires awe and stirs the soul. From gorgeous Lake Lucerne, thought to be the inspiration for Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata," to the Aletsch glacier, a remnant of the last Ice Age that slowly sculpted the Alps, the country's natural wonders are, indeed, wonders.
Magnificent views are everywhere you look, and A&K knows the best ways to see them. At Lucerne, board the world's steepest cogwheel railway to Pilatus Kulm for spectacular views of the Alps. Take a private boat ride on one of the country's thousands of lakes and rivers. Stroll along the lakeshore with a private guide, stopping to breathe in the fresh, crystal-clear air.
But Switzerland is more than beauty. Its storied history is evident in the ancient ramparts and medieval Hofkirche in Lucerne and in Bern's 5th-century gothic cathedral. In Ticino, Switzerland's Italian-speaking southern region, you see the well-preserved fortifications surrounding the town of Bellinoza, with its three magnificent castles. Then stop in nearby Lugano to explore churches and cathedrals before relaxing with a cappuccino at the colorful Piazza della Riforma.
Visit a clockmaker in Bern, the country's vibrant capital. Sneak a bon bon on a visit to a chocolatier in Geneva. A&K shows you a Switzerland that intrigues and delights in unforgettable ways. Join one of our small group journeys or create your own tailor made journey of a lifetime.
