Duration: 10 h
It’s a picturesque drive up the winding country roads that will lead us to the small community of Kyburg where the Castle stands overlooking the Töss River. Kyburg is one of the best know castles in the region and is a Swiss heritage site of national significance. Kyburg is more like a village and there are a number of charming homes with beautiful gardens. The view from the tower overlooking the village below is also very picturesque .The castle is first mentioned in 1027 under the name of Chuigeburg ("cows-fort"), which name points to an original use as a refuge castle for livestock. The modern spelling Kyburg first occurs in the 1230s (other spellings of the 11th to 13th century include Chiuburch, Cogiburk, Kuiburc, Chuͦweburg, Chyburc, Qwiburg, Kiburc, Chiburg, Kibor, Kyburc, Kiburg). The castle has plenty of rooms to visit, including an armory, dungeon, courtrooms, castle chapel, shop and small restaurant. Kyburg village is also very charming and the walk up to the castle is also very pretty. Our next stop will be at Winterthur which is a treasure trove of art, history and nature. The name Winterthur originated from the roman city of „Vitudurum“. The people of Kyburg founded the city which received the so called right of city by the „Habsburgians“ in 1264. In 1467 the city was financially broken and taken over by the large city Zurich until the Year 1798.  The medieval heart of the city is full of life no matter what the time of day. Shops, restaurants, markets and festivals bring the charming Old Town to life and provide a meeting place for locals, visitors and businesspeople alike. Being a city small enough to get around conveniently while also having a big-city atmosphere makes Winterthur a popular destination.The pedestrian zone in the charming Old Town is considered to be Switzerland’s largest. Venerable mansions in and around the Marktgasse, the City Church, the Fisher Maiden’s Fountain and the famous Town Hall Passage are great attractions. Our next stop will be at the mighty Switzerland Rhine Falls which is the most powerful waterfall in all of Europe and one of the most popular places to visit in Switzerland.  This popular tourist attraction has over one million visitors each year, who all come to see not only the Rhine Falls in Switzerland but the stunning landscape and villages that surround the Rhine River. The Rhine River Falls is found on a stretch of the Rhine River known as the High Rhine.  This is where the waters cascade down to a lower level, creating the picturesque Rhine Water Falls.  The falls are just a single drop waterfall, however with a width of 150 metres and a height of 23 metres, its size is impressive.   You will blown away by the sheer power of the Rhine Falls, particularly during the summer, where the water flows at an impressive rate of 600,000 litres per second.Our last stop in this tour will be at Stein am Rhein in Switzerland which is a little bit like exploring the known unknown. You know it’s going to be pretty. But it still takes you by complete surprise. It’s also one of the best-preserved medieval old towns in Switzerland – famed for its timber architecture and magnificent paintings on the façades of the old buildings.The Old Town is one of the most beautiful and best preserved medieval old towns in Switzerland, famous for its painted houses dating from 15th to 18th centuries. The paintings are wonderfully vibrant and depict scenes from history, the bible and myths and legends. The town hall dates from 1539 and was renovated in the late 19th century with additional historical paintings. The former Benedictine abbey is worth a visit to see the convent houses, cloister buildings and the abbey chapel, with some fabulous frescoes dating from around 1500. Among the sights are the Monastery of St. Georgen, one of the best-preserved Medieval monastery complexes, the Lindwurm Museum depicting 19th century bourgeois and agricultural life as well as the holiday areas and excursion destinations that include the island group of Werd. The Hohenklingen Castle, which was built high above the town in 1225, brings to life the colorful history of Stein am Rhein. It is here that the oldest house of worship in the Canton of Schaffhausen is found, a church dedicated to St. John the Baptist in the midst of wall remnants of the Roman fortress Tasgetium, which was built in the 3rd century A.D. After free time we will return to  Lucerne.
