A visit will be made to the elegant town of Interlaken, gateway to the Jungfrau region and picturesquely situated between the sparkling waters of Lake Thun and Lake Brienz and Meiringen, where Sherlock Holmes reputedly met his death.

Ample leisure time in Grindelwald will allow us to enjoy our wonderful resort and the spectacular views of the Eiger.
