Make the most of a free morning to explore beautiful Strasbourg. La Petite France is a wonderful location for a stroll with all its halftimbered buildings. This historic quarter of Strasbourg is divided by the River Ill, through the area that was, in the Middle Ages the home to Strasbourg's artisans, its tanners, millers and fishermen. This interesting area has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1988 largely due to its abundance of beautiful half timbered buildings. Another must see site is Strasbourg's magnificent cathedral, the Cathedral of our Lady of Strasbourg. This remarkable building is commonly considered to be one of the best examples of high- Gothic architecture in Europe. Day 2 This afternoon we continue by rail to Switzerland.

Interlaken is the destination for your excursion today. The capital of the beautiful Bernese Oberland is one of the most popular regions in the Swiss Alps, and it's easy to see why. Its scenery showcases all the hallmarks of a picturepostcard Swiss location, with its snow-capped peaks, rolling hillsides, rugged rocky outcrops and pristine glaciers. The region provides a year-round playground for climbers, walkers and skiers. Interlaken resides in the very heart of this captivating landscape, wedged between Lake Brienz and Lake Thun and surrounded by three peaks; the Jungfrau, the Eiger and the Monch Mountains. Because of its location Interlaken is a great starting point for any adventure in the Bernese Oberland.

Days 4-5

Grindelwald carriage ride

Travel by train to Grindelwald this morning, a pretty Alpine village tucked away at the foot of the north face of the Eiger. Grindelwald is one of Europe's oldest mountain resorts and its name comes from the old German 'grindel', which means a piece of wood that serves as a barrier, and 'wald' a closed off forest. In the 1920s, as the popularity of skiing rose, so in turn did Gindelwald's. The village itself has an abundance of Swiss charm and is surrounded by open skiing fields in winter. You can explore the area at leisure before returning to Wilderswil ahead of dinner. On Day 5 you are free. Perhaps you'd like to cross the Brunig Pass to Lucerne, and discover this pretty lakeside city.

The Jungfrau Express

Travel on the Bernese Oberland Railway to Kleine Scheidegg today and meet up with the Jungfrau Express for a sensational journey to Europe's highest railway station, Jungfraujoch, known as the 'Top of Europe' and located 3454 metres above sea level. The train burrows through the North Face of the Eiger and the tracks emerge on the slopes of the Mönch before climbing to just below the summit of the Jungfrau. The views are awe-inspiring, and you have the opportunity to visit the ice caves and palace, seeing all of the ice sculptures. Also be sure to spend some time on the Sphinx terrace with its amazing views of the Aletsch Glacier.

Today's trip is to the picturesque mountain town of Mürren, nestled at the base of the famous Schilthorn Mountain. The village enjoys a mountain terrace above the Lauterbrunnen valley at an altitude of 1,650 metres, and because of its excellent location it attracts visitors throughout the year. One option open to you is to continue from Murren further up the mountain, to the summit of the Schilthorn. On Schiltorn mountain resides the 'Piz Gloria' rotating restaurant, made famous by the 1969 James Bond film 'On her Majesty's Secret Service'. You are free to discover this area at leisure. Be sure to take a ride up the mountain itself, the views are worth it alone (payable locally).
