See Zurich's massive Christmas tree with 40,000 Swarovski crystals. Relax on the famous Glacier Express as it cuts through Switzerland's mightiest peaks and explore Luzern, Montreux on Lake Geneva and Innsbruck. Stay 2 nights in the chic ski resort of Klosters and relax over 3 relaxing nights in a spa resort perched high in the snow-clad Alps, surrounded by massive, jagged peaks.
