Switzerland & the Alps, Christmas in Switzerland

Two half-hour shows featuring:

Switzerland & the Alps: The Swiss Alps reverberate with cowbells, accordions, and laughter. We make our home base in the year-round playground of Interlaken, the “town between two lakes”. We sail across glacial Lake Brienz, famous for its beautiful wood carving. We head to the spectacular Lauterbrunnen Valley for a heart-stopping gondola ride to alpine heights, and hike past flower-filled meadows and mountain chalets. Then it’s off to vibrant Zurich for shopping, chocolate and tasty Swiss cuisine.

Christmas in Switzerland: Hot spiced cider and strains of “O Tannenbaum” warm our hearts as we head to Europe for Christmas. Switzerland has a special glow this time of year and we find plenty of good cheer in the bright Christmas markets and toasty ski lodges. We begin in German-speaking Zurich with its glittering trees and festive music. We veer off the beaten path to the medieval towns Bremgarten and Einsiedeln. Then we discover French-speaking Switzerland on the shores of Lake Geneva. Dog sledding on a glacier and a visit with Father Christmas round out the trip.
