The Swiss Holiday Company

A fabulous lakes and mountains holiday Enjoy alpine Mürren AND lakeside Lucerne from £1,089pp

One of our favourite holiday suggestions, giving you the very best of Switzerland!

On this 7 night holiday you'll be able to enjoy the fabulous mountain scenery in the tranquil village of Mürren and then head to historic Lucerne, a resort perfectly placed for lake cruises. 

Day 1. Arrive and get to know Mürren

Flight from the UK to Zurich followed by 1st class rail travel/cable car to Mürren. The journey itself is fabulous, with wonderful views of the Bernese Oberland and the Jungfrau mountains. 

Check in to your hotel for your 4 night stay and take a stroll around this idyllic, traffic-free village. 

Days 2-4. Explore the Jungfrau region

Mürren is located in the heart of amazing alpine scenery. From your base here, you can enjoy many memorable walks with stunning views and there are plenty of mountain restaurants en route for a cooling drink or a spot of lunch. The Schilthorn mountain is close at hand - enjoy the cable car ride to the summit, where you'll find the James Bond museum, a revolving restaurant and views as far as the Black Forest and Mont Blanc. Allmendhubel is another recommended excursion - a true beauty spot - and the villages of Wengen and Lauterbrunnen are certainly worth visiting. The iconic yellow PostBus can take you to the impressive Trümmelbach Falls, which carry the meltwater from the Jungfrau glacier to the valleys below. 

Days 5. Travel to Lucerne, including the Luzern-Interlaken Express

It's time to head back down the mountain. When you reach Interlaken, you'll transfer to the famous Luzern-Interlaken Express. The train has huge panoramic windows, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the scenery as you travel through the Hasliberg region, over the Brünig Pass and towards Lucerne

Days 5-7. The lakes and mountains of Lucerne

Lucerne is a bustling lakeside resort, renowned for its wonderful scenery, history and charm. Once you've checked in for your 3 night stay, you can easily walk from your hotel to the historic centre and start to explore the Chapel Bridge and atmospheric squares and take in views of the sparkling lake. Nostalgic paddle steamers and modern vessels sail regularly, so you will be able to experience a leisurely cruise as far along the lake as you wish. Lucerne is also perfect for local mountain visits. Pilatus, Rigi and the Stanserhorn all make for memorable days out, with a mix of lake, rail and cable car travel giving scenic views en route. On the mountains you can enjoy fantastic walks and fresh mountain air. The panoramic views you'll have over Central Switzerland's many lakes and mountains will remain with you forever. 

Day 8. Last day

Time for a last stroll along the lake and through the picturesque streets. There are many charming boutiques for purchasing souvenirs before you take the short rail journey back to Zurich airport for your flight home.

Your holiday includes a Half Fare Card, which entitles you to 50% reduction on all the excursions mentioned above. We can also advise you on a selection of great value travel passes.
