Christmas in the Swiss Alps

Enjoy Christmas surrounded by breathtaking mountain vistas

Board the famous Glacier Express for a scenic train journey through the Swiss Alps

Imagine… celebrating Christmas over 4 nights deep within Switzerland's massive mountains in a wonderful Swiss Spa resort nestled in the heart of the majestic Alps. Spend three days exploring Bavaria's Fairytale Castles and Christmas Markets, see the majestic Matterhorn views and explore Montreux's romantic Chateau Chillon. Relax in panoramic carriages on the Glacier Express, passing frozen waterfalls and lakes. Christmas Eve, take the cable car up Mt Gemmi for 'lunch with the views' and relax on Christmas Day, floating in a steaming, outside thermal pool under the twinkling stars, surrounded by huge, jagged peaks. What an unbelievable Christmas experience!
