1st day:
Arrival in Lucerne by train from the Swiss border or airport. Overnight in Lucerne.

2nd day:
Time at leisure in Lucerne. Due to its central location right on Lake Lucerne and the surrounding mountains such as f.ex. the impressive Mount Pilatus, Mt. Rigi – Queen of the mountains or Mount Titlis at 3020 m/10’000 ft high, Lucerne is considered to be the "Switzerland in Switzerland". We recommend you explore one of these mountains. Overnight in Lucerne.

3rd day:
Board the GoldenPass Panoramic Brünig train over the Brunig Pass to Interlaken. The scenery you experience is characterised by beautiful wooden chalets weathered and browned by the sun in a wonderful landscape. Overnight in Interlaken.

4th day:
Excursion up to the Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe. The Jungfrau Railway takes you up to the Jungfraujoch – at 3454 m/ 11’333 ft the highest railway station in Europe. This region has been declared a UNESCO World Natural Heritage region in December 2001. Overnight in Interlaken.

5th day:
Today you take the train to Grindelwald. From there an aerial gondola takes you up to the First on 2168 m/7’113 ft high where you enjoy a fascinating panorama over the Swiss Alps. Try the optional First Flyer or perhaps an exciting Trotel Bike ride back down to the village!

Overnight in Interlaken.

6th day:
The GoldenPass Panoramic BLS train features special Salon Bleu carriages and takes you from Interlaken through the rural Simmental region, renowned for prosperous farms and typically brown Swiss cows to Zweisimmen. The journey continues with the GoldenPass Panoramic MOB train to Montreux. Do not miss the grandiose views of the Lake of Geneva and its terraced vineyards. Overnight in Montreux.

7th day:
A sweet day! In Montreux you board the "Chocolate Train" with its nostalgic Belle Epoque or Panoramic carriages. On the journey a coffee and a croissant will be served to each passenger. In Gruyères you visit a cheese factory. Afterwards a bus takes you to the village centre where you will have time at your disposal for visiting the village and its castle or you might enjoy a good lunch.

The bus takes you back to the station where you board the train again to Broc. The Nestlé/Cailler Chocolate factory awaits you and will show you a film about chocolate making, you will visit the factory followed by a chocolate tasting and an interesting factory sale.
