We booked a trip on the Lavaux Express to take a tour of the local vineyards and sample some of the wines offered by the local wine makers. The trip started at Lutry where we enjoyed an ice cream before heading off on the train....More

It is just a must if the weather is nice and you want to enjoy the region without driving. I did both train, the one from Lutry and the one from Cully.

My husband and I took the Lavaux Express last week. We took the train to Cully from Lausanne-Gare as we did not have a car. Once off the train, we had to walk about 5 minutes to get the wine train - the route there...More

The train was brightly coloured and cute, but that was it. After the friendly driver greeted us and collected our tickets, we never heard from him again. There was absolutely no commentary at all, which if present could definitely have improved the experience greatly. It...More

We took it a few years back. Kids loved it! The ride was awesome for kids, though they cared a lot less than an adult in the impeccable view over the lake. It is only for tourism season.

This is probably the best, and perhaps, only way to experience the Lavaux vineyards for a family with young children. DIY hikes are impossible for children. Going up and own the hills and terraces in this tractor-like train cars is fun for children and adults...More

Took the Lavaux Express (which is a tractor dressed as a train pulling cars on the roadway through the vineyards) through the wine country above Lake Geneva and the small town of Lavaux, Switzerland. The vineyards are built on the steep hillsides and the train...More
