The Places

The tour lingers for some time in Zurich, in its celebration of Christmas. There is a visit to the famous Toy Museum at Nuremberg, a city well known as the centre of the German toy-making industry. Churches seen are the Great Minster in Zurich, where Zwingli once preached, and the monastery at Einsiedeln, at the heart of Catholic Switzerland.

The Music

The tour is accompanied by witty arrangements of Christmas favourites in the style of Baroque masters, of Bach, Handel and Vivaldi, by the Slovak-born composer Peter Breiner.
