Did you know that Switzerland produces the most chocolate in the world? Or that it’s been named the “World’s Happiest Country?” Find out what makes Switzerland such an awesome place to live – the chocolate, maybe! – as you ride a lakeside railroad, take a cable car up a mountain and sail on a steamboat through the country with your grandchild. Along the way, learn local legends about dragons and goblins, speed down the Alps on a toboggan, venture to a farm to learn how cheese is made and, of course, try your hand at making some tasty chocolate together!
