Switzerland/Germany

Title: Finding Frankenstein: the Creature and Ourselves

Description: Follow the trail of Victor Frankenstein and the Creature among the Alps and famous “Sea of Ice” glacier where they met, the University of Ingolstadt where Victor made the monster (also the birthplace of the Illuminati!), and explore the ruins of the real Castle Frankenstein as well as the very villa where Mary Shelley began writing the novel in 1816, as we travel through Germany, Switzerland, and take a day-trip to France. Will we find Victor? The Creature? Ourselves? Known for its tradition of tolerance and neutrality, Switzerland is one of the world’s oldest democracies and this six-credit program also includes privately-guided visits to significant cultural and historical sites such as John Calvin’s church in Geneva (St. Peter’s), the UN (Palace of Nations), the Rousseau House, Lake Geneva and the Jet d’Eau, and more.
