AUSTRIA AND SWITZERLAND WITH THE SISTERHOOD

AUGUST 1-12, 2023

The hills are alive with the sound of music, the aroma of strudel, and the taste of schnitzel. In addition to the fables, falsettos, and tastes of two of Europe’s most scenic countries, a symphony of sights awaits your arrival on this scenic tour of Austria and Switzerland.

​Palaces and castles, peaks, and glaciers, moving scenery, and famous movie scenes are all on the itinerary. As you make the stunning journey from melodious Vienna to metropolitan Zurich, you’ll experience the breathtaking scenery in a variety of ways. Cruise down the dreamy Danube, board the Glacier Express train for the car-free mountain resort of Zermatt, and frolic in the same Austrian locations as Julie Andrews did in the hit movie The Sound of Music.

At the end of our eye-opening and ear-pleasing vacation, “So long, farewell” to our traveling Sisters will be the hardest words to utter.

Don’t miss your opportunity to join Sisterhood Travels for this incredible women-only once-in-a-lifetime trip. We promise you lots of fun, laughs, spectacular sightseeing and most of all….the magic of Sisterhood!
