New Glarus – “Little Switzerland”
THIS TRIP HAS BEEN CANCELLED. We apologize for any inconvenience.
For 175 years, the beautiful little community of New Glarus, Wisconsin, has been a magnet for Swiss settlers. New Glarus was originally settled by a hardy band of 108 Swiss pioneers in 1845 who left Switzerland during an economic crisis. Since then, succeeding generations and a steady stream of new Swiss immigrants have kept alive the community’s Swiss-German language, folk traditions, and music. Our visit will begin with step-on guided tour of the area and you will quickly understand its popularity as a destination. We’ll then enjoy a guided walking tour of the Swiss Historical Village. You will leave the Swiss Historical Village with a complete understanding of how these brave immigrants lived and worked. Lunch, a traditional Swiss food and entertainment experience, will take place at the New Glarus Hotel Restaurant. Choose one of the three entrees when signing up: Wienerschnitzel (thin slices of veal); Swiss Meatballs (blend of beef, veal & pork); or Kaesechuechli (baked cheese pie w/fresh fruit). After this incredible meal you’ll have three hours free to explore all that New Glarus has to offer. We’ll provide transportation to both the New Glarus Brewing Co., where you can enjoy a self-guided tour and samples and to Bailey’s Run Winery. Within walking distance you may choose to visit the Chalet of the Golden Fleece Museum, shop at the variety of stores and/or simply relax with a glass of wine as you watch the town’s activity. New Glarus is “America’s Little Switzerland”. Moderate walking.
Cost: $99 / person (Includes Lunch)
