From Vevey a cog railway runs via Blonay to the vantage point with open-air exhibition of our solar system and the universe. And in spring the surrounding fields are chockablock full of daffodils.

The Astro-Pléiades begins by the mountain station: And astronomical observations with your feet on the ground continue with a stroll through our solar system to fixed stars and finally to extragalactic sights.

The notorious fields of daffodils pave the way as scenic jewel for the romantic – not to speak of their beauty in the eyes of photographers, hikers, bikers Nordic walkers and paragliders who all love the spot. The chalet-style mountain guesthouse from where views from the terrace alone are well worth a visit is a great place to be as well!
