Learn about the eventful history of Switzerland – once a low-wage country and today known to be one of the richest countries in the world. This tour gets you behind closed doors and stops at places normally inaccessible to the public. Our local guides will give you their personal and well researched insight into different aspects of Switzerlands history: Banking, the watch industry, our national hero William Tell and the foundation of Switzerland. No other tour offers exclusive access behind the scenes at the Tellspiele (Interlaken's open air William Tell theatre) and the Tourist Museum Unterseen!
The Story of Switzerland is not about learning thousands of dates and historical facts, but instead it is an interactive way to cut the surface and see what’s behind the image of Switzerland.
