Feldkirch is a medieval city in the western Austrian state of Vorarlberg on the border with Switzerland and Lichenstein. It is nestled in a picturesque place where three valleys meet and includes a well preserved old town. While small in size, it is the most well preserved and scenic of Vorarlberg’s cities.
The beautiful medieval town, which remains well preserved to this day, was mentioned as a city for the first time in 1218, after Count Hugo Von Montfort built the “Schattenburg”, a castle which still is the major landmark of Feldkirch. Other sites in the town include the cathedral of St Nikolaus from the late Gothic period.
Travel on the tracks of some of the most beautiful rail routes in Switzerland and experience magnificent alpine scenery up-close.
DAY 1: After completing our local pick up route we head direct to Folkestone for our morning crossing to Calais via Eurotunnel. We will have suitable lunch and refreshment stops en-route to our overnight hotel.
DAY 2: We travel to our mainstay, the Hotel Weisses Kreuz in Feldkirch. Time to have a welcome drink before dinner.
DAY 3: We travel today to the chic and elegant St Moritz, one of the world’s most famous resorts. This is the starting point for today’s journey on the route of the spectacular Bernina Express. Climbing to 2,250 metres, this train ride takes in the glaciers before heading south to the swaying palms of Tirano, Italy. We have some free time here in Tirano before the coach returns us to the hotel.

Travelling by coach to Andermatt, where you will board the train, following the same route as the Glacier Express. This unforgettable journey takes you past legendary mountain peaks, icy blue tongues of glaciers and through unspoilt valleys. The scenery and landscape is stunningly beautiful, and will provide you with many wonderful memories. A quick change of train is required at Disentis before continuing on to Chur, where your coach awaits for the return journey.
