We spent a wonderful day in the surroundings of Vevey on Lake Geneva. The sunny spring weather resulted in perfect views of the region.
We started by taking the cogwheel train from Vevey via Blonay to Les Pléiades. A very scenic ride to a hikers paradise. No hiking for us this time; we just had a cup of coffee in the restaurant and enjoyed the view, as far as the Mont Blanc.
Next, we took the funicular from Vevey up to Mont-Pèlerin. We hiked further up the mountain to the TV tower Plein Ciel, where one can take the lift to the observation platform for a great 360° view.
The day was finished off at the terrace of restaurant à l'Aigle gourmand, right next to the funicular station of Mont-Pèlerin. The staff was kind enough to prepare us a salad and fries, even though we came when their kitchen was closed, between lunch and dinner time.
We'll add more details about these trips to the website later. A few images are attached.
