Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland and the capital of the canton of Zurich. It is located in north-central Switzerlan…

Home to the country’s largest end of year party, Zurich is a fabulous city by the water buzzing with daily activity and a lively nightlife. Bring in the New Year in style this December and join us as we eat, drink and be merry in Switzerland!

New Year in Zurich

Even though the city is a global centre for banking, Zurich still has a picturesque Old Town (Altstadt) full of history which contrasts well with waterfront promenades along the Limmat River. Our guided walking tour introduces Switzerland's economic centre and the streets on both sides of the river Limmat. The churches amaze with stained glass windows by famous artists: Marc Chagall at the Fraumünster and Sigmar Polke at the Grossmünster (entrance fees not included). After the tour we may like to explore on our own, or why not take a cruise on Lake Zürich in the afternoon?

Rhine Falls

The following day we take a trip up to the Rhine Falls, one of Europe’s largest waterfalls, and then on to Stein am Rhein, a small town known for its well-preserved medieval half-timbered houses with beautifully painted facades. Step back into the 15th century as we explore the heart of the old town around the town hall square. Afterwards we will then back to the city for a New Year gala in one of Zurich’s lovely local restaurants.

Free time to explore

With a free day before heading home, you could make the most of New Year’s Day and purchase a Zurich Card which gives you unlimited 2nd class travel by tram, bus, train, boat and cable car throughout the city for 24 hours (night supplement applies). There is also free or reduced admission to many museums, discount in various local stores and cultural activities.

Useful Information

Transfer Time
The transfer time from Zurich Airport to the hotel is approximately 15 minutes depending on traffic.

Included Programme
During your holiday, we have included a guided tour of the the city and a tour of the Rhine Falls with a visit to the village of Stein am Rhein.

Gratuities
There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below.

Your Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual. We suggest a group collection to cover drivers, porters and hotel staff of €15.00. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate add on.
