Hi Rika,

You will need to do these trips separately unless you take a tour. You will see some vineyards from the Golden Pass train. I would then, the next day, take a trip on the chocolate train and/or the cheese train.

If you would like a tour and do all in one day check out this tour here that covers everything you are looking for.

Regards,
Lucas

If you want to take your time for the vineyards then consider a walk like this one: myswissalps.com/hiking /lutry-epesses.

this was helpful. since I want to both trips of cheese & vineyards is it better to stay in Montreaux or Geneva? Also i will be visiting Bern from Grimewald, should i come down that route to GENEVA from Bern. I have swiss travel pass. Please suggest best route & place to stay

Thx

Rika

Hi Rika,

You'd best consult the timetable to find such information. Montreux is closer to the vineyards, and it's starting point for both the Chocolate Train as well as the Golden Pass train.

I'm not sure if I understand your question about visiting Bern from Grindelwald (I assume that's what you mean with Grimewald?). You can either visit Bern on the way between Montreux/Geneva and Grindelwald (in that case you won't be using the Golden Pass line) or as a separate day trip from Grindelwald. The timetable I mentioned provides all details.

I hope this helps!

hi

I am staying in Montreaux for 3 nights, so to visit the vineyards how long will it take for the train ride from Montreaux? Time table is a bit confusing. Also can I add Cruise trip on Lk Geneva on same day?

thx

Hi Rika,

Which vineyards are you referring to? We have information here about Lavaux vineyards if that is what you are looking for.

Lucas
