Full description

Discover the captivating beauty and rich cultural heritage of Switzerland with our exclusive private excursion package. Your friendly driver-guide will meet you at your hotel lobby in Zurich, and you’ll embark on a thrilling journey to Saint Gallen, located between Lake Constance and Appenzellerland. Enjoy the breathtaking views of the Swiss countryside through the windows of your comfortable private vehicle.

Your first destination is Saint Gallen, where you will learn about its fascinating history dating back to the early 6th century when it was founded by the Irish monk Gallus. The city is now famous for its intricate lace, used by top fashion brands like Chanel and Dior. Explore the local Textile Museum, which showcases the industry’s interesting history.

Next, we’ll head to Saint Gallen’s highlight, the baroque Abbey Library, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1983. Marvel at its unique architecture, colorful painted oriel windows, and detailed Rococo interior. The library houses over two thousand manuscripts dating back to the 8th-15th centuries, including early German literature.

Explore the charming traffic-free Old Town on foot, and discover its quaint tea shops, perfumeries, coffee houses, and shoe stores.

We’ll then continue to Appenzell, located in northeastern Switzerland, at the foot of the Alpstein Mountains. Enjoy leisurely exploration of the picturesque town, with its beautifully decorated facades, traditional houses, and shops selling local products. The Appenzell Museum, located in the Town Hall, offers a fascinating insight into the cultural and religious traditions of the region.

We also offer an optional excursion to Mount Säntis, where you can take a cable car to enjoy panoramic views of Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Liechtenstein, France, and Italy. It’s a sight not to be missed!

After the trip, you’ll return to Zurich City feeling relaxed and energized, with unforgettable memories of this fantastic experience. Don’t forget to take some stunning photos to treasure forever.
