You won’t forget our luncheons in medieval mountain settlements, at famous Piz Gloria at the top of the Shilthorn, and on a luncheon cruise skimming medieval lakeside villages of the Thunsee. Explore raging Trummelbach Falls from inside a mountain and so much more on our great and playful adventure.  Bring the family! Four nights at 5 star Bellevue Palace, Bern.

Germany’s King Ludwig Castles Extension
Depart Bern for our three night trip by private car through pretty Bavarian countryside to the foothills of the German Alps.  We’ll explore three of the most fantastic fairytale castles built by the eccentric Bavarian King Ludwig; romantic Neuschwanstein which was the model for Cinderella’s castle at Disney World, exquisite Linderhof Palace, and majestic Herrenchiemsee Palace, which was to be an exact copy of Versailles and half completed when King Ludwig died. Each night will be spent in a different charming hotel in a storybook setting, the Jagerhaus Hotel in Schwangau, Residence Heinz Winkler in Aschau, and Salzburg’s 5 star Hotel Schloss Fuschl.  Excellent cuisine and fine wines throughout, hosted by Buddy Bombard.
