Farm & waterfall
Visit a Swiss farm, enjoy an alphorn performance from farmer Toni. Take a scenic ride through green hills to Europe's biggest waterfall: the Rheinfall. Stroll around through the beautiful streets of Stein am Rhein.
We leave Zürich or Lucerne in the morning to start the tour with a scenic ride through the picturesque unknown hilly landscape of the Toggenburg/Appenzell region, where the world seems to stand still and a lot of living traditions await you. You'll visit a farm in Urnäsch. Cheer at the exciting pig race, make your own little hale plush toy, collect eggs from the chickens or listen to the beautiful sound of the Swiss alphorn, at the musical performance by farmer Toni. Try to play the alphorn yourself.
You will enjoy lunch individually in the beautiful town of Appenzell where all the houses are uniquely hand-painted. From there we drive to the most northern part of Switzerland, to Stein am Rhein. Stroll around in the streets of the charming town of Stein am Rhein before marvelling at Europes biggest waterfalls, the Rheinfalls. You'll cross the river by boat to the visitors rock in the middle of the waterfall, from where you have an awesome view over the falls and you feel the power of water at first hand.
Afterwards you'll have time to relax at the riverside or discover the acient castle of Laufen right next to the falls, before we return to Zürich or Lucerne.
