1 Arrive Lucerne, Switzerland

Tour Begins: 4:00 PM, Hotel Schweizerhof Luzern. Welcome to the Swiss Alps! A transfer is included from Zurich International Airport to Hotel Schweizerhof Luzern. Meet your Tauck Director and your fellow adventurers in the lobby of your grand hotel in the Old Quarter for a walking tour of Lucerne’s cobblestone streets, discovering the city's spires, covered bridges, fountains and more. Tonight, join us for a private Tauck Bridges welcome reception and dinner at the award-winning Hotel Schweizerhof Luzern.

Under the project titled "Wo Luzern Geschichte(n) schreibt" (Where Lucerne writes history/stories), every guest room has been allocated a guest with a unique story. They include great personalities such as thinkers, artists, politicians, athletes, musicians and crowned heads as well as unknown guests, whose stories are part of the hotel's history. Stay Two Nights: Hotel Schweizerhof Luzern (D)

2 Lucerne, Switzerland
Lucerne's famous Löwendenkmal (Lion Memorial) pays tribute to the Swiss Guards who gave their lives in defense of the French king centuries ago; after visiting this Swiss national monument, head out to Alpnachstad to ride the world's steepest cogwheel train up to the summit of Mount Pilatus. The mountain is a place of myth and legend; some say there be dragons living in the caves here... as well as the ghost of Roman governor Pontius Pilate! Later, descend via aerial cableway to Fraekmuentegg, where major fun awaits you at Switzerland's biggest rope park*, the country's longest summer toboggan run*, or a thrilling (but safe) giant tubing slide!* After riding a gondola to Kriens, head back to Lucerne to spend the evening as you please. (B/L)
3 St. Moritz, Switzerland
Feast your eyes on some of the world's greatest scenery today... first on a cruise across lovely Lake Lucerne, and then aboard the famous Glacier Express for what many call the most scenic rail trip in Europe – winding its way through lush Alpine valleys dotted with little villages... the real Switzerland! Arrive in the popular resort town of St. Moritz for a two-night stay in the Engadine Valley. Stay Two Nights: Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains St. Moritz (B/L/D)
4 St. Moritz, Switzerland
Start another exciting day in the Alps by climbing up Piz Diavolezza via cable car; you won't believe the views of the Engadine Valley and its many lakes stretching out below you... plus, you'll have a chance to try the highest virtual reality experience in the world! Then it's off to the Morteratsch Glacier for guided mountain hiking*, rock climbing* and abseiling* (descending via ropes)... a visit to an Alpine cheesery for lunch in a meadow and a look at cheesemaking... and a few surprises!* If you wish, hop aboard a mountain bicycle* for a ride back through the Engadine Valley to St. Moritz, where your evening is free to enjoy as you please. (B/L)
5 Innsbruck, Austria
After crossing the border from Switzerland to Austria this morning, get wet and wild in Austria's Ötztal Valley today on a trip to Area 47, one of the largest adventure parks in the Alps, and Europe's ultimate outdoor playground. Jump into a neoprene suit and helmet, and head out on a whitewater-rafting adventure*; then do some swimming or try out the slides and other attractions of one of the newest and biggest water parks on the Continent, and enjoy lunch at the park. Arrive late afternoon at your Alpine spa hotel in Längenfeld – the AQUA DOME – offering more aquatic fun for the whole family with a pool, waterslides, spa, sauna, thermal baths and fitness center. Stay Two Nights: AQUA DOME – Tirol Therme Längenfeld (B/L/D)
6 Innsbruck, Austria

This morning, head to Innsbruck – the 15th-century capital of Emperor Maximilian I's Habsburg Empire, and more recently the host of two Winter Olympic Games in the 20th century – and visit the high-tech Bergisel ski-jump complex, designed by star architect Zaha Hadid, for a demonstration of the difficult and daring art of ski jumping. Later, join your local guide in old Innsbruck for a walking tour of this idyllic Alpine city, during which you just might "meet" old Emperor Max and his wives.

Following a free afternoon, enjoy an after-hours private visit to Ötzi-Dorf, an open-air museum and archaeological site in the Oetzi Valley, interpreting village life during the time of "Oetzi" – the Neolithic Age of about 5,000 years ago. Dinner tonight in a rustic restaurant includes a memorable evening of Tyrolean fun, games and activities! (B/D)

7 Munich, Germany

Depart Austria and cross the German border into Bavaria, where you'll arrive in the village of Ettal this morning for your choice of a guided mountain hike of the area with a park ranger, or a visit to Ettal Abbey. A Benedictine monastery established in 1330 and later rebuilt in the Baroque style after a fire in the 18th century, the abbey is one of Europe's largest Benedictine residences; your family's visit (should you choose it) includes tours of the abbey church, as well as its distillery and brewery (with tastings for the adults).

After lunch, continue on to Munich, Bavaria's capital city. Cap your memorable family Alpine vacation with tonight's farewell dinner in the historic Palais Keller – once a 15th-century salt store – beneath your landmark hotel in the heart of the city, the Bayerischer Hof... a perfect base from which to explore more of Munich as you please. Stay: Bayerischer Hof (B/L/D)

8 Depart Munich, Germany
Trip ends: Munich. Fly home anytime; a transfer is included from the Bayerischer Hof to Munich Airport. You should allow a minimum of 3 hours for your flight check-in. (B)
