Simple but very nice experience. There are 2 routes (from Lutry and Cully) and we liked the one from Cully much more - a stop for site-seeing is really amazing 👍🏻

The ride is around an hour long and takes you through the Lavaux vineyards, which are a UNESCO heritage site. There's 1 stop for some wine tasting/buying from a nice vantage point. It was a fun experience, more so because the weather was nice. Also...More

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

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
