Meeting place Under the big clock (Gruppentreffpunkt)
Address: Zürich main station
Discover Romandie: LAVAUX & Chocolate Factory 

Are you ready for a full-on Swiss experience?

Then hop on board the train and come to Romandie with us.

Our journey will take you from Zürich to Fribourg, where we will do a little sight-seeing tour and taste some specialities from Fribourg.
As you all know, Switzerland is famous for its delicious chocolate. As an exchange student you definitely cannot go home without having visited at least one chocolate factory ;) Therefore, the Maison Cailler will be our next stop. After visiting the chocolate factory, we have time to eat lunch (which you have to bring yourself). By the time we are taking the panorama train from Broc (Chocolate factory) to Montreux ( hopefully all of you will have forgotten about the lack of sleep due to the early start.
In Montreux we will have some time to wander around the cute city in small groups and look for the statue of Freddie Mercury, or just chillax at the lake shore.

The last stop of our day will take us to the Lavaux wine yards which are part of the UNESCO world heritage. The region is one of the most beautiful places in Switzerland and definitely a must see. After (or during) some nice strolls through the incredible beautiful landscapes, you will get the chance to taste local wines. We will be back in Zürich at around 20:00.

We are looking forward to spending an adventurous day with you!

See you soon,

Your ESN Team

P.S. if you worry about the early start or the long train rides, just google “Lavaux” and I’m sure you will no longer hesitate to sign up for this trip.
And who says no to free chocolate anyways??
