Travel Daily - - News -

A GROUP of 10 agents have re­cently re­turned from Switzer­land, where they en­joyed the coun­try’s bou­tique cities of Zurich, Basel, Lucerne and Mon­treux and the ad­ven­tur­ous In­ter­laken, the Jungfrau Re­gion and Zer­matt, all via the spec­tac­u­lar Swiss Travel Sys­tem of trains, buses, fer­ries and moun­tain ca­ble­ways.

Agents ex­pe­ri­enced var­i­ous types of ac­com­mo­da­tion; e-bik­ing; cruis­ing; wine tast­ing; and the many mu­se­ums ac­ces­si­ble with the Pass in­clud­ing the FIFA mu­seum and Vi­tra­haus.

In their ex­plo­ration of moun­tains, agents started with Mt Titlis where they walked across Europe’s high­est sus­pen­sion bridge.

The Schilthorn and its re­volv­ing Piz Glo­ria restau­rant was an­other high­light, as was Jungfrau­joch, Top of Europe, home to the high­est moun­tain rail­way. Be­fore head­ing home, agents vis­ited Zer­matt, home of the iconic Mat­ter­horn.
