If you grew up watching Yash Chopra movies, then taking a Europe tour package would have definitely been on your bucket-list.
When you go for a Europe tour package, there are some things that should be a must-have on your list. Switzerland is a must on the list of all lovers of –
Bollywood romance movies
Romantic river waterfalls
There are some places in Switzerland, which are standard Bollywood shooting locations, like Jungfrau, Gstaad, lake Lauenen / Lauenensee. etc and you would have seen them in enough Hindi movies. Don’t forget to go to Zurich, Lucerne, and the waterfalls at the Rhine river. Swiss Alps are the most beautiful moutains; one look at them, and you will know why movie stars run around these slopes in thin threads and ecstatic smiles!
Swiss chocolates are known to be the best ones in the world and we can list at least 20 chocolate factories that were founded in the early 19th & 20th century in Switzerland. The companies we now refer to as Nestle and Lindt have acquired some of these factories. In fact, milk chocolate was pretty much invented over here and Rodolphe Lindt invented the conche style chocolate way back in 1879 in Berne. For a chocolate to be qualified as Swiss, the actual production must happen in Switzerland.
If you are an adventure buff, then you can try the Ice-Flyer, which is a ski lift that goes along the glacier of Mt Titlis. There is also the highest suspension bridge in Europe; strictly for those with guts & a penchant for adventure.
Round off this trip with a visit to Switzerland’s culture-media-urban hub, Lucerne, which is also the 6th most visited city in the world. Situated on the banks of River Lucerne, it has the views of the Swiss Alps mountains – Mt Pilatus & Mt Rigi – it is the most sought-after tourist destination. While you are there, don’t forget to walk over the Chapel Bridge (called Kapellbruke in their local language), which s a wooden bridge made in the 14th century.
