I'm travelling to switerzland in January 2018 for 4days with my wife. Where staying at Hotel du Léman - Jongny chemin de la Fontaine 2, 1805 Vevey, Switzerland.

How much wil it cost to get there by train or buses ? Is there any vegetarian places to eat ? What can I do for 4days there ? Are there any tours close by ?

Kind Regards UK NA

Hi UK NA, and welcome to MySwissAlps!

To calculate a fare, we need to know where you are starting from. If it is Geneva Airport, the adult full fare is CHF 36.60 each.

If you are staying for 4 days, and plan on using trains, buses, boats and funiculars, you might find it worth your while to buy a Swiss Travel Pass.

Vegetarians usually have no problems finding places to eat in Switzerland.

>> What can I do for 4days there ? Are there any tours close by ?

There is plenty to do in the area. The following links should assist:

Hi.

Alpenrose666 has provided a very comprehensive answer. One other place you might be interested in seeing nearby (particularly if the weather is less than favourable) is Chaplin's World, right there in Vevey: www.chaplinsworld.com/ en

Your hotel should provide you with a Montreux Riviera Card, giving your free and discounted travel in a reasonably large area around Vevey and Montreux. However if you plan to travel outside that area a lot, the Swiss Travel Pass or Swiss Half Fare Card will save you money.
