The Best of Austria & Switzerland with Oberammergau - Faith-Based Travel (ZCO)

14 Day Tour from Vienna to Munich

2022 Tour Details

This Best of Austria and Switzerland tour with Oberammergau covers the highlights of three of Europe's most scenic countries: Austria, Switzerland, and Germany. Spend two nights each in Vienna, Salzburg, Zermatt, and Lucerne, and an overnight in St. Moritz, Berne, Innsbruck, Oberammergau, and Munich.

If you're a fan of palaces and castles, you'll enjoy a visit to Vienna’s Schönbrunn Palace, once the home of the Habsburg family. Stand in awe as you hear the stories of this royal family's home. You'll also enjoy a visit to romantic Chillon Castle, a well-preserved, medieval castle on the shores of Lake Geneva.

If spectacular scenery interests you, then you'll be thrilled with the ride on the world-famous Glacier Express train, where you'll travel first-class and have panoramic windows to admire the thundering waterfalls, impressive peaks, glacial ice fields, and tiny villages on your way to Zermatt, a picturesque cluster of rustic chalets beneath the majestic Matterhorn. This is a special treat Globus includes to make sure your tour is all you want it to be. Other scenic highlights include a Danube cruise along the prettiest part of the river; a private boat cruise on the fjord-lake in Lucerne (another special treat offered by Globus); a mountain train ride from Zermatt to Täsch; a scenic drive into the Swiss Engadine, considered by many to be the world’s most beautiful mountain area; a stop in Interlaken, where you can take pictures of the Jungfrau Massif with its three famous peaks; and more.

Plus, enjoy first-class seats to the world-famous Passion Play in Oberammergau, performed every 10 years by Oberammergau residents. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

These are just a few of the many highlights of this Austria and Switzerland tour. From the historical sights, castles, and palaces to the spectacular scenery, this is a dream vacation!

By June 2021, your vacation, which includes the Oberammergau Passion Play, requires a per-person, non-refundable deposit of $750. Prior to June 2021, a minimum of $250 non-refundable per person deposit is required to secure your reservation and tickets for the play.
