To begin with Gabi Vogt was stunned. Then, after she had been able to take it in, she was overjoyed. She was the lucky winner of the first prize in Hotelcard's competition - one week's free holiday in Switzerland.

Gaby and a companion of her choice will be driving to the Engadin Valley in a SUBARU XV, provided for their exclusive use during the week, to begin their holiday with a two-night stay at historic 4-star hotel Bernina 1865. Following this, their itinerary will take them to Ascona, in the canton of Ticino, where they will be able to enjoy the town's Mediterranean flair at centrally-located Hotel Monte Verità – including a breath-taking view of Lake Maggiore. Their "Tour-de-Suisse" will conclude at the SeeHotel Gotthard in Weggis, on the banks of Lake Lucerne, where they can enjoy some well-earned relaxatin in the spa area.

We congratulate Ms Vogt on her prize and wish her an unforgettable tour around Switzerland.
