Indulge in unique flavors; try as many varieties as you like! We’ll continue through typical Bernese back country towards the Swiss capital Bern.
We’ll take an informative walk through charming Old City of Bern, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Marvel at the Late Gothic Munster Cathedral, stroll under the characteristic arcades to Zytglogge, the clock tower, and pay a visit to Parliament building overlooking the beautiful Aare River.
After the guided walking tour you’ll have free time for lunch and souvenir shopping. Later we’ll continue through fascinating rural landscapes dotted with typical Emmental farmhouses. See grazing cows on lush, green hills.
We’ll stop at a show dairy right on time for the highlight of the day! Through the window you can watch the cheese masters taking out the fresh cheese from the pot by hand. We’ll learn about traditional methods of cheese production, followed by a tasting of the final product.
Bern Day Trip from Zurich.
Meet your guide in the heart of Zurich and board a luxurious, air-conditioned Mercedes minibus bound for Bern. Move through the UNESCO-listed Biosphere Reserve and learn about the region’s rich past while admiring the scenic Entlebuch Valley. Make your first stop at the Kamply Experience, a premium biscuit factory nestled in the Upper Emmental Valley’s green landscapes, for a demonstration on how the sweet specialties are produced.
Before returning to your coach for the trip to Bern, try a few treats. When you arrive in Switzerland’s medieval capital, take a guided tour of the UNESCO-listed Old Town and see famous sights like the Münster’s 100-meter spire and Bern Cathedral. After the walk, spend some leisurely free time exploring Bern, maybe with a refreshing lunch in a local restaurant (own expense). Return to your car and drive to an Emmental show dairy for a scenic drive.
After arriving, take an audio-visual tour of the show dairy and learn more about the origins of the world’s most popular cheese before sampling it during a tasting session. Continue to a dairy farm for a photo opportunity with an incredible view of the Emmental’s rolling green hills, before bidding your guide and party farewell at a central Zurich spot. Take home a goodie bag of Swiss items worth at least CHF 30 that you collected at the various attractions during the day.
