Austria and Switzerland

Austria and Switzerland by George Kruckenberg of West Des Moines. Travel through Austria beginning in Vienna with its grand palaces and museums from the Hapsburg era, beautiful Baroque churches and colorful parks and gardens. Then, a river cruise on the Danube and a visit to Salzburg, the "Sound of Music" city. In Switzerland, begin in Zurich and join a tour traveling on some of the most scenic trains in Europe, including the famous Glacier Express, as you enjoy spectacular panoramas of majestic snow-capped mountains, including the unmistakable Matterhorn, lush green valleys dotted with small villages, farms, and typical Swiss chalet homes, waterfalls, and scenic lakes and streams. Along the way are stops at Lucerne, Interlaken, Monteux, Zermatt and St. Moritz and also a trip via cable car to the top of a 10,000-foot peak in the middle of the Alps.
