After arrival in Zurich, you will ride the train to Bad Ragaz Switzerland with a rail pass provided by Alpenwild. The group will meet on the first day at 2:00 pm in the hotel lobby for a casual meet and greet and a chance to explore Vaduz Liechtenstein and Vaduz Castle.  Dinner to follow.


On the afternoon of Day 11 in Grindelwald we again provide you with a rail pass back to the airport, a final night’s dinner in Zurich, with breakfast on Day 12 prior to departure for onward travel.
