Root Vacation Packages

Welcome to Root, set in Central Switzerland, which is a first-class destination known for its remarkable rivers, lakes and mountains.

Bern, the national capital, is located roughly 45 miles (72 kilometers) to the west of Root, while Lucerne is 6 miles (10 kilometers) to the southwest.

From major tourist drawcards to secret places that are waiting just for you, the area around Root is wonderfully endowed with things to do and see. Roughly 11 miles (18 kilometers) away is Gersau. Head here to see the Parish Church of St. Marzellus and Old Town Hall Museum of Local History.

Approximately 6 miles (10 kilometers) to the southwest of Root is Lucerne, an important regional city where you'll find Glacier Garden, Richard Wagner Museum and Lucerne Arts Museum. Saint Peters Church, Jesuit Church and Swiss Transportation Museum are more points of interest in Lucerne that should be included on every traveler's to-do list.

The most rewarding places for tourists to visit when they discover a place they have never been are the spots that provide a picture of the local culture. Make a trip to Central Switzerland's history museums, art museums and art galleries. Spend a day in the sunshine and fresh air and make the most of Central Switzerland's popular open-air markets.

Should you hear the call of the wild, follow the lead of active locals and spend a few hours mountain climbing or hiking.

When it is time to depart Central Switzerland, you'll be sure to bid this region a sad "Au revoir / À bientôt" Rest assured, however, you'll be leaving with special memories and momentos that you can enjoy for years to come.
