Trains that run on wheels not railways! In high season (Apr-Oct), these two trains meander through the steep vineyards of Lavaux so that visitors can admire the stunning views over the vineyards. The Lavaux Express operates the Lutry-Aran-Grandvaux-Lutry and the Cully-Riex-Epesses-Dézaley-Cully lines. A special train offers wine cellar tours three evenings a week. The Lavaux-Panoramic line runs from Chexbres to either Saint-Saphorin village or Chardonne village with a welcome stop along the way to enable visitors to sample some local wines.
Through the vines that line the municipalities of Puidoux, Chexbres, Saint-Saphorin, Rivaz and Chardonne, the convoy takes travelers as close as possible to the beauties of the Lavaux site.
It runs from April to October and offers several hourly tours, themed routes and the possibility of rental for private events. Whether individually or in a group, reservations are recommended.
