Welcome to Vienna. Much of Vienna’s present day charm is due to the long reign of the Habsburgs, so in the afternoon, join our guide for a private visit of Maria Theresa’s Schönbrunn Palace and formal gardens. Then get your camera ready for a drive around the famous Ring Road. This grand boulevard, built along the lines of the old city walls, showcases many of the capital’s architectural masterpieces, including the Opera House, magnificent Hofburg Imperial Residence and Parliament Building. Thereafter, retire for the day.
This morning, drive westward on the highway to Salzburg. Enjoy the view of “The Sound of Music” countryside and arrive to Hallstatt. With pastel-coloured houses that cast shimmering reflections onto the glassy waters of the lake and with towering mountains on all sides, Hallstatt’s beauty alone would be enough to guarantee it fame. Stop for a picture stop in Hallstatt before we continue to Salzburg for an orientation tour that will bring you to the Mirabelle Palace and garden. Continue our walk to the old town which includes the Residence Square, Mozart Square and the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Crouching at the foot of forested mountains, hugging the banks of the Rhine and crowned by a turreted castle, its location is visually stunning. We will do a brief stop before continuing to picturebook-Lucerne, one of Switzerland’s finest cities nestling amid its snow-capped Alps, surrounded by its lake and embellished by the clear mountain waters of the River Reuss. Her quaint, narrow streets and small squares entice you with its shops and boutiques.

Keep your eyes peered for the 16th-century astronomical Clock Tower with its ornate decorations. A short walk away, you will find house No. 49, once Albert Einstein’s home where he had written the ground-breaking “Theory of Relativity” in 1905. Thereafter, we will make our way to Lausanne.
