The Bernese Oberland. Amazing Engineering and Victorian Tourism Relived

Wednesday 13 June — Book now
Wednesday 13 to Wednesday 20 June. A re-run of our spectacular Swiss tour to some of the great landscapes of the world, made accessible to well-heeled Victorian tourists by extraordinary feats of engineering.

Led by Geoff Brandwood, we explore this beautiful terrain by rail, bus, foot and by water. We ascend to the Jungfraujoch (Europe’s highest railway station), and use cog railways, paddle steamers to visit castles, towns and such natural wonders as the Aare Gorge and the Reichenbach and Trümmelbach Falls. High-quality half-board accommodation is at the Sun Star Hotel in Wengen, a car-free village high above the truly awe-inspiring Lauterbrunnen Valley, south of Interlaken. We meet up in Basle railway station (easily reached by flights and train) in the late afternoon. We believe the £1,545 price (sharing) offers very good value with far more on offer than any package tours.The single supplement (limited places) is fairly modest at just £145. Early booking is advised. Please contact Geoff directly at for further details and any questions.


Earlier event: Dine at the Great Northern Railway Tavern, Hornsey
