An hourly regional train from Vevey station to Puidoux-Chexbres offers the unusual experience of travelling across the terraced vineyards of the Lavaux UNESCO World Heritage Site. From Chexbres-Village station, where the train stops along the way, there are many footpaths through the magnificent, steep terraces. A signposted educational trail tells the story of the vineyard and the grape varieties grown there.

The “Lavaux Panoramic” is a tourist train with tyred wheels that carries visitors from Chexbres-Village along narrow roads through the vineyards. On the way, travellers can learn about the characteristics of the region as they admire the spectacular landscape. Similar trains known as the “Lavaux Express” also run through the Lavaux vineyards from Lutry and Cully. The winegrowers offer tourists the chance to taste their wines in their cellars.
