Interested and seeing how Swiss chocolate is made, specifically for Swiss International Air Lines?  Then this video will show you the entire process, from the bean to the perfect little chocolate candy confections that are provided to passengers on the airline.

SWISS taste of Switzerland SWISS taste of Switzerland

After viewing this video, we think we'll have to fly Swiss International Air Lines someday.  Yes, watching how they thoughtfully and carefully prepare delicious looking food and artfully serve it to their first-class passengers, we are pretty certain we'll have to fly on this airline and splurge on upgraded seats.  There are some pretty nice scenes of the Swiss Alps as well in this video.  But, yes, I think Swiss Internation Air Lines will have to be on our list.

Jungfraujoch Jungfraujoch

We're off to the Swiss Alps soon and the Junfraujoch region is on our list.  This travel video brings us some scenes of the area that we're looking forward to seeing - the majestic snow-capped Swiss Alps, scenes of little villages with Swiss chalets, cows everywhere on the Alpine hills, fondue, cheese, more cows and more cheese.  The upbeat yodeling tune that goes with this video is very amusing.

George M describes his video:  The third video in our EuroTrip series, we stop by Zurich for some sightseeing, a pot of genuine Swiss fondue, and a much needed replacement hard drive at the Apple Store before continuing on to Lauterbrunnen Valley, where herds of Swiss cows graze in the shadows of the Eiger, Monch, and Jungfrau mountains.

In just one day, we explore both sides of the Valley, starting with an early trip up from Stechelberg to Gimmelwald to buy some genuine Alpkasen (Alp Cheese) before heading back down and hitting up Wengen, taking the cable car to Mannlichen, hiking a few miles down to Kliene Schidegg in the blistering cold and falling snow to get some breathtaking views of the Swiss Alps, then visiting the Swiss cows and their symphony of bells before taking the trains up to Jungfraujoch "The Top of Europe" and enjoying the views at the top all by ourselves with a pack of Swiss chocolate in hand.

Not a lot of folks think about going to a place like Lauterbrunnen Valley when they visit Europe, but trust me - after my first visit on a Contiki tour, this is one place you won't want to miss!

P.S. Many thanks to Rick Steves for directing us to the Alpkase in Gimmelwald - a great find!
P.P.S. Back packing around Europe? We highly recommend the High Sierra Sentinel 65 - perfect for getting arund!

This short video is a fascinating and creative look at the city of Bern as the sun goes down, night falls and the lights come on around the city.  The timelapse format gives the brightly lit city a magical and playful look as the camera moves speedily through the town while stopping on the cathedral, the clock tower and parliament buildings so you can get a better look.  This video is a fun treat for the eyes.

Note from the videographer:  Bern Hyperlapsed is a short portrait of the Old City of Bern. It merges a view on traditional sights with the novel visual impression allowed by hyperlapse photography. The film consists of around 3500 single pictures, mainly taken between December 2013 and March 2014.

MATTERHORN | A Time-Lapse Film - In 4K MATTERHORN | A Time-Lapse Film - In 4K

Take a close-up journey to the top of the Matterhorn in Zermatt, Switzerland. You can almost feel the chill of the icey snow-capped peak that is 14,692 ft (4,478 metres) at its summit.  Clouds roll over and around it, green Alpine meadows dot the landscape below it, all captured beautifully in this stunning video. 

Tyler Fairbanks describes how he made his film:

There is something truly majestic and somewhat eerie about the Matterhorn. After a short 3-day visit to Zermatt, Switzerland, I saw the fascination behind this mountain and began to understand why so many people have risked their lives climbing it. The Matterhorn is captivating and it’s hard to take your eyes off it (and my camera).

Chur Arosa Trainlapse

The journey gets off to a leisurely start in Chur. But the sedate trundle through the town is soon over as the red train suddenly begins to climb up into the mountains, where Arosa awaits with fresh mountain air. The Arosa Line climbs 1,000 meters in just 26 kilometers. Since 1914 the train is winding its way through unspoilt nature and the mountainous landscape of Schanfigg.

THE ALPS - Time Lapse Selection THE ALPS - Time Lapse Selection

We added this video to our Alps collection for its stunning capture of the majestic snow-capped peaks of the European mountain range.  The time lapse video sequences capture the rolling clouds like an ocean of waves over the mountains and takes you through a tunnel, then out in the open, to scenic viewpoints, across rugged terrain and beautiful landscapes.  It will simply take your breath away.  Joerg Niggli took the footage over the Swiss, French and Italian alps.  The Alps are the highest and longest mountain range in Europe, stretching approximately 750 miles across France, Italy, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Germany, Austria and Slovenia.  Mont Blanc is the highest peak and is situated on the border between France, Italy and Switzerland.
