LAVAUX EXPRESS

A small train on wheels in the land of great wines! The breathtaking scenery of the terraced Lavaux vineyards, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, unfolds before visitors’ amazed eyes on the itinerary of the small Lavaux Express train.

This charming little train on rubber tires valiantly braves the slopes of this winegrowing region of old from April to October. Just like the Lavaux wines, this splendid site with sunny slopes dominated by verdant vines and the iridescent water of Lake Geneva will enchant visitors.

The itinerary is organised in two loops: Lutry – Aran – Grandvaux – Lutry and Cully—Riex – Epesses – Dézaley – Cully. Depending on the day of week, this journey of roughly an hour can be adapted to individual wishes: special trips can accommodate up to 68 persons.

DISCOVERING THE LAVAUX TERRACES

A vast network of hiking trails criss-cross the impressive slopes of the Lavaux terraced vineyards located between Lausanne and Chillon Castle and above Vevey and Montreux.

This terraced vineyard was made by winegrowing families who have been lovingly tending their grapes for centuries. The breathtaking beauty of Lavaux is a pleasure for the soul and has attracted a great number of artists who came to live in these small picturesque villages.

Lavaux is considered a site of universal value and is now listed as part of the UNESCO World Heritage Program. The mosaic-like patterned plots attract many hikers in search of rest and tranquillity.

All along a didactic path stretching from Lausanne to Montreux, Lavaux winegrowers invite visitors to discover the exceptional and authentic beauty of their vineyard in any season of the year.
