• Explorations of magnificent sites in Lucerne and Berlin.

In September 2014, we’re off on a magnificent Hosted Journey to Lucerne, Switzerland, and Berlin, Germany, to hear live performances by some of the world’s greatest symphonic orchestras. But with the superb guidance of two hosts—Rosanna Bachmann in Lucerne and Kerstin Schellhorn-Piontek in Berlin—we also examine manmade wonders including an architecturally important, technologically cutting-edge concert hall and exceptional art collections, among other sites. And natural wonders in the stunning Swiss Alps.
