Be prepared for breathtaking views on this Germany, Austria, and Switzerland tour! Your vacation starts and ends with welcome and farewell dinners in Munich and includes overnights in Salzburg, Vienna, St. Veit, Innsbruck, St. Moritz, Lugano, Zermatt, the Lucerne area, and Dornbirn. Along the way, guided sightseeing and walking tours in many of the cities feature the must-see attractions, such as Marienplatz in Munich, with the Old and New Town Halls; Mirabell Gardens and Residenz Square in Salzburg; Vienna’s Heldenplatz; Innsbruck’s Golden Roof, the balcony built for Emperor Maximilian in the early 15th century; and the Lion Monument in Lucerne, dedicated to the Swiss Guards killed during the French Revolution.

The stunning scenery includes a drive through the scenic Salzkammergut Lakeland in Austria, made famous in the movie The Sound of Music; Cortina d’Ampezzo, home of the 1956 Olympics in the Italian Dolomites, the Italian “Rocky Mountains;” the Tyrolean Alps; the Swiss Engadine, considered by some to be the most beautiful mountain area in the world with deep-blue lakes, mountain peaks exceeding 12,000 feet, and quaint villages with massive white stone houses; beautiful Lake Maggiore in Italy; Zermatt, a picturesque cluster of rustic chalets beneath the Matterhorn; and more. On your way to Austria, visit the thundering Rhine Falls, Western Europe’s largest waterfalls.

On this Germany, Austria, and Switzerland tour, Globus has also arranged some out-of-the-ordinary experiences for you. Visit the world-famous Lipizzaner Stallion stud farm in Austria, the place where these magnificent horses are bred and raised before they go to the Spanish Riding School in Vienna; join the locals at the historical Vanini Café for an aperitif in Lugano; and enjoy a two-night-stay at the Jugendstil Hotel Paxmontana in Flüeli-Ranft.
