The astronomical theme of this thematic trail already begins when taking the train called "Train des Etoiles" (Train to the Stars) from Vevey. Once up at the mountain station, the well-maintained trail explains four different themes. The first stop explains the "Earth as an Observatory", the second is dedicated to the "Secrets of the Sun System". The third station explains the closest fixed stars, and the fourth one our galaxy, the Milky Way.
The careful planning of a tour will ensure that you also derive the maximum pleasure and enjoyment from it. Please take the time to contact the local information centre and enquire about route and weather conditions before setting off. Your intended trail may be fully or partially closed, depending on the time of year and weather conditions.
