Cruise Extension Switzerland
A Rhine cruise typically takes you from Amsterdam to Basel, or in the opposite direction from Basel to Amsterdam and taking about 7 days. Basel is one of the gateways to Switzerland and includes a beautiful historic Old Town and many museums and art galleries. Depending in which direction you cruise, we recommend you to add a Rhine cruise extension through Switzerland or a visit of Switzerland before boarding a cruise Rhine downwards to Amsterdam. We are a team of local Switzerland specialists and offer cruise extensions in Switzerland.
Switzerland is a natural paradise and you will be impressed by its scenic beauty. A Rhine cruise extension in Switzerland will greatly enhance your cruising experience. You will see one of the most attractive and safest countries in Europe. We have clean lakes, an unlimited amount of exciting mountains and many historic cities dating to Roman times. Switzerland is also a hiking paradise. Visits can also be combined with the Glacier Express and or any other scenic train in Switzerland. And you can cruise with lake steamers on most of Switzerland’s many lakes.
Our clients most favorite cruise extensions in Switzerland are to the lakeside city of Lucerne and the Bernese Oberland to see the famous peaks Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau. This can be done in 2 - 4 days. If you have more time we recommend adding Zermatt and the Matterhorn. Zermatt is also connected to St. Moritz by Glacier Express and this makes for nice round trip itinerary ending in Zurich. If you are active and would like to do some hiking or biking (or any other sports) we can combine that for you and offer you a more active experience.
