Day2 125-year-old cog railway to Mt. Pilatus and fun at Fraekmuentegg
Meals B, L
Lucerne's famous Löwendenkmal (Lion Memorial) pays tribute to the Swiss Guards who gave their lives in defense of the French king centuries ago; after visiting this Swiss national monument, head out to Alpnachstad to ride the world's steepest cogwheel train up to the summit of Mount Pilatus, celebrating its 125th birthday in 2014 with an Open-Air Festival and special anniversary events all season long. The mountain is a place of myth and legend; some say there be dragons living in the caves here... as well as the ghost of Roman governor Pontius Pilate! Later, descend via aerial cableway to Fraekmuentegg, where major fun awaits you at Switzerland's biggest rope park*, the country's longest summer toboggan run*, or a thrilling (but safe) giant tubing slide!* After riding a gondola to Kriens, head back to Lucerne to spend the evening as you please.

Day3 Cruise Lake Lucerne and take the Glacier Express to St. Moritz
Meals B, L, D
Feast your eyes on some of the world's greatest scenery today... first on a cruise across lovely Lake Lucerne, and then aboard the famous Glacier Express for what many call the most scenic rail trip in Europe – winding its way through lush Alpine valleys dotted with little villages... the real Switzerland! Arrive in the popular resort town of St. Moritz for a two-night stay in the Engadine Valley.
Lodging Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains St. Moritz

Day4 Cable cars, glaciers, rock climbing and bicycling in the Engadine Valley
Meals B, L
Start another exciting day on your family's Alpine vacation by climbing up Piz Diavolezza via cable car... you won't believe the views of the Engadine Valley and its many lakes stretching out below you. Then it's off to the Morteratsch Glacier for guided mountain hiking*, rock climbing* and abseiling* (descending via ropes)... a visit to an Alpine cheesery for lunch in a meadow and a look at cheesemaking... and a few surprises!* If you wish, hop aboard a mountain bicycle* for a ride back through the Engadine Valley to St. Moritz, where your evening is free to enjoy as you please.

Day5 From emperors and ski jumpers in Innsbruck to Tyrolean fun and games in Seefeld
Meals B, D
Say goodbye to Switzerland and head across the Alps into Austria. Arrive at Innsbruck – the 15th-century capital of Emperor Maximilian I's Habsburg Empire, and more recently the host of two Winter Olympic Games in the 20th century. Join your local guide for a walking tour of this idyllic Alpine city, during which you just might "meet" old Emperor Max and his wives. The afternoon takes you to Innsbruck's high-tech Bergisel ski-jump complex, designed by star architect Zaha Hadid, for a demonstration of the difficult and daring art of ski jumping. Then it's on to your five-star hotel, a former 16th-century monastery in Seefeld in the heart of the Austrian Alps. Tonight, you'll ride a horse-drawn carriage to a traditional mountain “hut” for a memorable evening of Tyrolean food, music, fun and games including archery, "crazy golf" and three-wheel cycling on an obstacle course, capped by a campfire!
Lodging Hotel Klosterbräu

Day6 Whitewater and water park fun at Area 47 and some Alpine leisure time
Meals B, L, D
Get wet and wild on your Alpine vacation today in Austria's Ötztal Valley during a trip to Area 47, one of the largest adventure parks in the Alps, and Europe's ultimate outdoor playground. Jump into a neoprene suit and helmet, and head out on a whitewater-rafting adventure*; then do some swimming or try out the slides and other attractions of one of the newest and biggest water parks on the Continent. Spend the rest of the afternoon and evening as you please, enjoying dinner à la carte at leisure in the hotel.

Day7 A carriage ride to a fairy tale castle and Bavarian fun in Munich
Meals B, L, D
Depart Austria and cross the German border into Bavaria, where you'll have an experience straight out of a storybook... a horse-drawn carriage ride to fanciful Neuschwanstein Castle for a guided visit. This grandiose castle in the mountains was built by Bavaria's King Ludwig II in the 1880s, and served as the model for the castle in the animated Disney film classic Sleeping Beauty. Stop for lunch, then continue to Munich. Cap your memorable family Alpine vacation with tonight's farewell dinner in the historic Palais Keller – once a 15th-century salt store – beneath your landmark hotel in the heart of the city, the Bayerischer Hof... a perfect base from which to explore more of Bavaria's capital city as you please.

Nights 1 - 2 : Hotel Schweizerhof Luzern - Lucerne, Switzerland

Hotel Schweizerhof Luzern

A family-owned hotel is a great place for families to stay, and five generations of ownership by the same family (since 1861) ensure a warm welcome and heartfelt hospitality at the lovely Hotel Schweizerhof Luzern. Originally built in 1845, a thoughtful renovation in 1999 kept the hotel’s original 19th-century splendor in mind. Set in the midst of Old Town Lucerne, it is the perfect base for exploration of this city on the shores of lovely Lake Lucerne. Guest rooms have individually controlled air conditioning, minibar, radio, cable TV with all major national and international channels, hairdryer and an in-room safe. You’ll find fitness facilities in the Schweizerhof Wellness & Beauty that are equipped with Technogym machines. The Pavilion restaurant offers fine seasonal à la carte menus and Swiss specialties and the Galerie restaurant focuses on culinary delights from the sea and the lake. And the Terrace is a great place to get a cold drink and a bite to eat while enjoying the sunshine and the view.

Nights 3 - 4 : Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains St. Moritz - St. Moritz, Switzerland

Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains

Located next to the old “Mauritius” spring, the origin of glamorous St. Moritz, the elegant, "Belle Epoch" Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains in St. Moritz has been the preferred address for royalty, politicians and noted artists since the 19th century. All 184 luxurious guest rooms are equipped with cable television and video-on-demand, minibar and spacious bathrooms. The indoor swimming pool, with its lovely views of the surrounding mountains, is the perfect place to relax after a busy day. If you’re feeling more energetic, the fitness area offers up-to-date cardiovascular equipment and even the workout area has views of the majestic mountains. Or, wile away a few hours stalking Lady Luck at the St. Moritz Casino, located in the west wing of the hotel.

Nights 5 - 6 : Hotel Klosterbräu - Seefeld, Austria

Hotel Klosterbräu

The origins of the unique Hotel Klosterbräu, located in the center of the charming Tyrolean village of Seefeld, date back to 1516 and the Monastery of “Sevelt”. Great care has been taken to preserve the centuries-old building, which became a hotel and has been owned and run by six generations of the Seyrling family with the goal of giving guests an authentic “sense of place”. Although your guest room is part of such a historic building, you’ll find thoroughly modern amenities including a minibar, radio/CD player, flat-screen TV, hair dryer and an in-room safe. Take a dip in the indoor or outdoor swimming pools or invest some energy in the Fitness Centre with both cardio and strength equipment. Sample Tyrolean specialties in the rustic Bräukeller or dine in the historic monastery vaults of the Gewölbesaal. The Wine Cellar is a memorable place to begin or end an evening.

Night 7 : Bayerischer Hof - Munich, Germany

Bayerischer Hof


New for 2013! Guests enjoy complimentary Internet access in guest rooms!

One of The Leading Hotels of the World, the sumptuous Bayerischer Hof first opened its doors in the heart of Munich in 1841 at the request of King Ludwig I, who wanted a comfortable place for his guests to stay; the finest hospitality has been a tradition at the Bayerischer Hof for over 160 years. You’ll instantly feel at home in a large, comfortable guest room equipped with all the amenities that today’s sophisticated travelers expect. Set high above the roofs of Munich, the Blue Spa is the ideal place to work on your fitness level or just relax on the Pool & Sun Terrace while you enjoy beautiful views out over the city. Former Mr. Universe, Ralf Moeller, carefully chose the state-of-the-art fitness equipment in the Fitness Studio, where you’ll find everything you need to put together your own exercise program. If you’re yearning for Bavarian specialties, beer right from the keg or a really great pretzel, the Palais Keller is just the spot. Or, perhaps you’ll choose to dine at the Garden-Restaurant with its Mediterranean atmosphere and South-Sea-inspired cuisine. Enjoy an aperitif or a nightcap in Falk’s Bar in the famed Spiegelsaal (Mirror Hall), the only room in the Bayerischer Hof that survived World War II unscathed; or enjoy the view of the city from the Blue Spa Bar & Lounge. If neither of those alternatives appeals to you, the hotel has four other distinctive watering holes from which to choose.
