Swiss Vapeur Parc at Le Bouveret: A Miniature Wonderland!

Come to Swiss Vapeur Parc and cross invisible boundaries into the world of fantasy. We open our doors wide to a land of fun and wonder. Travel on our fabulous little trains and explore the essence of what is Swiss embodied in miniature models (truer than reality) and rediscover the innocent pleasures of childhood.

This unique park displays its attractions in an area of over 17’000 m2 at Le Bouveret, in a pleasant location adjacent to the shores of Lake Geneva, Switzerland. One miniature train enthusiast, having come from afar to admire this touristic marvel of lower Valais, confided that all the troubles of everyday life seem to disappear within the gates of the park. Only a child’s earliest experiences of joy can come close to expressing the first sensations of a trip on a miniature train. The little trains chug along as if by magic through a sumptuous decor displaying miniature replicas from the rich heritage of Switzerland: the Castle of Aigle, the Church of Saanen, the Halls of Neuchâtel, the Swiss Residence, railway buildings and constructions of every sort (bridges, viaducts, tunnels, etc.), conjuring up a journey into a land of dreams!

Gruyères Castle

The castle towers above the small medieval town. It offers a look at eight centuries: copes of Charles the Bold, paintings by Corot, Knights' room, French garden with view of the mountains. A multi-media show and temporary exhibitions complete a memorable visit.
In this castle you may find also the HR Giger museum who became an internationally renown artist through his biomechanical art and the creation of Alien, which earned him an Oscar in 1980. His museum showcases a variety of his most important creations, reflecting his mythical-magical universe.
The adjacent Giger Bar with its gothic arches represents one of the artist's most beautiful works of art - its features and furnishings evoke the appearance of stone relicts in old cathedrals... and exert a mesmerizing effect on its visitors. www.hrgigermuseum.com

Mines de sel de Bex

Today, a few kilometres of this immense labyrinth can be visited. This itinerary takes us through the most spectacular and most characteristic of the various mining techniques used since the first gallery was excavated in 1684, up to the present times.
An audiovisual presentation (in French, German, English and Italian) installed in an ancient reservoir dug out in 1826 as well as an exhibit allow you to relive all stages of the three centuries of history of salt and the mines. Then a small train brings you to the heart of the mine. From there a pedestrian circuit of about one hour allows you to discover the incredible effort put in the underground search for salt springs, or the desalination of rock containing salt, which, at the time, was worth its weight in gold.
