At your Swiss Christmas Hotel
The alpine peaks of Switzerland are world famous and you will be staying in the heart of this incredibly dramatic scenery. There are numerous world class ski fields nearby and the area is littered with excellent walking and cross country skiing trails. Your included 8 day Swiss Travel Pass gives you daily unlimited access to enjoy so many exhilarating alpine rail excursions – to Luzern, medieval Bern, Interlaken, Brienz (noted for its wood-carvings), Thun, and Meiringen (of Sherlock Holmes fame and where ‘meringues’ originated) plus the chic mountain ski resorts of Grindelwald and Wengen. We have also included pre-booked seats on the Golden Pass Panoramic train from Zweisimmen, past Gstaad and Château- d’Oex, to Montreux on Lake Geneva! You will be surrounded by stupendous mountains accessed by cable car rides and lifts such as to the Schilthorn (James Bond fame) and the Jungfraujoch – at 11,000 feet high the views are magnificent.

Booking With Global Journeys
Thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas spent in Wilderswill in Switzerland. The Swiss Rail Pass included in our Albatross holiday proved to be a great way of getting about and exploring the nearby snow capped Alps. Cannot thank Yvonne (Global Journeys) enough for the smooth way in which she handled our booking.
