Daily itinerary

Saturday, July 20th, 2024

Depart at 5:00am from Kaiserslautern and cross into Switzerland to visit the beautiful Rhine Falls. In addition to free time to explore Europe’s largest waterfall at your leisure, enjoy a photo stop outside the medieval Laufen Castle. Then, we’ll make our way to Zurich for some free time for lunch before heading to picturesque Lucerne, Switzerland’s idyllic Alpine town. Shop for Swiss watches and delicious Swiss chocolates or stroll over the Chapel Bridge, a 17th-century covered footbridge, for views of Lake Lucerne and the Alps. The remaining afternoon is free to explore on your own, or you can add an optional excursion:

Panoramic Lake Lucerne Cruise
This cruise provides the perfect end to a delightful day. Relax on the main or upper deck of the spacious 161-ft (49-meter) vessel while you listen to commentary about the majestic sights via an audio headset. With an expert captain at the helm, you’ll motor past forested hillsides and verdant meadows nestled against looming mountain peaks.

In the evening at 7pm, travel back to Kaiserslautern. Our estimated time of return is around 11:45pm.

Passport and Visa Requirements
A tourist passport is required for all trips outside of Germany.

Important passport rules are as follows:
If you have a passport with a SOFA stamp on any page (a “No-Fee” passport), you are provided permission to reside in Germany, NOT to travel outside of Germany. You have to have a tourist passport in addition to the SOFA/”No-Fee” passport to travel outside of Germany. You cannot travel with a RED Official passport as that is used only for the purpose of a mission or deployment. If you have a passport with a detachable SOFA card clipped inside, it is acceptable to travel with as that was issued originally as a tourist passport. If you are not sure: a tourist passport will be BLUE and will be valid for 10 years for adults. It cannot contain a SOFA stamp on any page or it is not acceptable. A child’s tourist passport (under 15 years of age) is valid for 5 years, but will not have a SOFA stamp in it anywhere. All of this information has been verified to be correct with the Grafenwoehr Passport Office.

Baggage Allowance
Each adult is entitled to one luggage and one personal item. Luggage should be able to be stored below the bus and the personal item should contain whatever you might need on the bus. Pillows and blankets do not count for the personal item. If you have additional items such as strollers, carseats, etc. please send us a message to make those arrangements.

Currency
The Swiss franc is the currency you will be using on your trip. We strongly advise that you take debit/bank cards and credit cards, which can be used to withdraw cash at local banks, as needed. You can use most debit/credit cards at ATMs, but make sure to check with your home bank about withdrawal fees. We suggest that you inform your bank and credit card company of your travel plans, so that they won’t confuse your international purchases for fraudulent charges.

Time Zones
Switzerland has the same time zone as Germany, Central European Time (CET).

Cuisine
Swiss food is varied and sophisticated, and some popular dishes include sausages, breaded veal fillets, freshwater fish and cheese dishes such as fondue and raclette. Be sure to try Swiss chocolate, which is among the world’s finest.

Health
There are no major health risks when traveling to Switzerland. It is always advisable to check with your doctor or health-care provider for the latest updates.

Tipping
At the conclusion of your trip, it’s customary to offer your Trip Leader a gratuity. We recommend tipping €1-2 per person per day for your Trip Leader. Tips can only be paid in cash.

We recommend you get travel insurance to reimburse you for unforeseen trip cancellation. Please follow this link to get a quote through Travel Insured.
