ROL Cruise recommends…
Embrace contemporary Zurich
With its iconic green spires and stunning bridges, there is plenty to do in Zurich. The city is the global centre of finance, but it is also home to the FIFA World Football Museum, which is the perfect stopping point for football lovers. Amazing opera houses and beautiful galleries are also around every corner. Even if you’d rather spend your time here walking the streets, there is plenty of beauty to be found, especially in the winter months when snow takes over and coats the city in a blanket of white.
Spend a day in Basel
A university city, Basel’s prime location on the Rhine has helped it grow into the bustling hub it is today. Situated at the juncture of the French, German and Swiss borders, it has a multi-cultural flair to it that many other Swiss cities don’t have. Whilst in Basel, take in some of the world-famous art, enjoy the museums and relax whilst dining alfresco.
Look over Lake Lucerne
Lucerne sits on the bank of Lake Lucerne, a stunning lake with bright blue waters and outstanding views. Whether you want to hike the hills around it or take a panoramic boat ride on it, you’re sure to get awe-inspiring views. The city on the Lake’s edge is just as beautiful, with the Chapel Bridge being a definite hot spot for couples and travellers alike.
Indulge in high-quality Swiss cuisine
When someone says Swiss cuisine, the first things that spring to mind is cheese and chocolate. Both are made to an exceptionally high standard thanks to the fresh dairy farmed around the country. When in Switzerland, whether in Zurich, Basel or elsewhere it’s worth taking the time to visit a chocolatier and seeing a master at work, you can’t leave without having a taste for yourself.
