    Description

    Switzerland has always been renowned for its stunning landscapes. Come for New Year and you will experience all the pristine beauty, genteel calm and well-oiled efficiency of the Swiss. Your four-star hotel is located directly on Lake Lucerne, which embodies the storybook image of the Swiss and the legend of William Tell.

    Take in Lucerne with its narrow cobblestone streets & slender spires and enjoy an invigorating ride on the Glacier Express in a first-class panoramic car. You will travel through untouched Alpine countryside, over roaring mountain streams and past towering walls of rock. Visit Engelberg, the leading mountain resort in central Switzerland, ride the cog railway up Mt Rigi on New Years Day and venture on the Stoosbahn, the steepest funicular railway in Europe. Add to all this the excellent gala festivities which are planned for New Years Eve and you have the makings of a wonderfully unforgettable New Year in Switzerland!
