Do you want to discover the highest waterfalls in Europe? Do you want to know how watches are made? Do you want to know why the citizens of Schaffhausen painted the Swiss flag on the rooftop of their houses? Do you want to know why in Medievel Towers the stairs mostly turn by the left side? Do you want to discover the only picturesque village located at the other side of the Rhine river? Then this is the right tour for you!
We leave Zurich in the morning and make our first stop near the city of Schaffhausen, where we admire the enormous power of the water from the Rhine falling down before it makes it`s way towards the Northsea. Nearby we visit the Swiss Watch Makers, we discover the history behind the very popular Swiss Watch Industry, and we learn how watches are made. We continue to Schaffhausen, where we climb a fortress which offers us a marvellous view over the old part of town. Time for some time at leisure and lunch (not incl.). In the afternoon we continue to the most picturesque village at the other side of the Rhine, which is the only part of Switzerland which was bombarded accidentally during the Second World War, as the Allied Forces thought this was part of Germany, due to it`s location at the other side of the river. Admire the beautiful paintings on the walls in the villages` historical centre and stroll by the bank of the Rhine River to make your way back to your private vehicle and driver. Transfer back to Zurich.
