Detailed Itinerary

After breakfast visit the lovely town of Zurich. This tour includes sights like the Old Town, Zwingli Statue and the Grossmunster Church. Huldrych Zwingli led the Protestant Reformation from Zurich in the 1520´s and his
pastoral office was located at the Grossmunster Church, a Romanesque-style Protestant church. Rest of the day free at your leisure.

Today we travel to the “cultural city of Switzerland”, Basel. Enjoy a short visit of the city that is located on the Rhine River where the Swiss, French
and German borders clash. In 1534 Calvin was induced to leave his home and to seek safety in free Switzerland. Here Calvin published his “Christian
religious doctrine”. Our last destination for today is Bern, the capital city of Switzerland.

In the morning we enjoy a sightseeing tour of Bern, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The Reformation in Bern was prepared in the city and throughout the canton by three ministers Sebastian Meyer,Bert-hold Haller and Francis Kolb and by a gifted layman Niclaus Manuel, who were all friends of Zwingli. On the way to Geneva short stop in Lausanne, where the pastor Pierre Viret, known as “the angel of the reformation” established a Reformed Academy.

In the morning we enjoy a panoramic tour of Geneva. First we visit St. Pierre´s Cathedral that belongs to the Swiss reformed Church now. After visit of the Reformation Monument that honors many of the main individuals, events and documents of the Protestant Reformation. Learn about several reformers that were active here, like Knox, Farel and Calvin, who was the most prominent and influential one and inspired the translation that was to become the Geneva Bible.

On the way to Zurich we make a short stop in Montreux, located at the foot of the Alps at the eastern end of Lake Geneva. Montreux boasts one of
the most beautiful walks along the lake, stretching from Villeneuve all the way towards Vevey.
