I came to the place by tour. Walking around the residential area, the wine field is spread along the lake. The place is not sightseeing place but agricultural place. I could not find souvenir shops around there.

Visited Lavaux, Had a video taking us through the whole process of growing to drinking. Then we had 3 glasses of wine to try, light white wine (very nice), slightly stronger and more mature white wine (even nicer) and then a rose, which was also nice. Were made very welcome.

If you arrive Montreux from the Geneva Airport by train sit at the left and admire the beauty of the Lavaux Terrasses. You will certainly want to see them closer or wander around. Montreux has a very good bus network and the tourists residing at Montreux hotels receive a free travel card (the Riviera Card). We took the bus 213... More

After spending one afternoon walking along these vineyards, we came back the next day for the lovely views of the terraced vineyards with the lake in the background! On the second day, we thought that it would be a good idea to go off the beaten path and just wander around. This was a bad idea -- there were parts... More

I have been going to the Lavaux Terrasses for many years, and absolutely love everything about the area...the beautiful vignobles, the splendor of Lac Leman, the majestic views of the French Alps, and the spectacular wines & food! Go off the beaten path, and roam - there are no wrong ways to go! *note* bring some plastic wine goblets with... More

We walked part of the "Terrasses de Lavaux" signposted walk from Lutry to Rivaz. As soon as you step off the train at Lutry the views over the lake are breathtaking. We walked through the vineyards, following the yellow direction signs to Rivaz. Along the way there are many brown signs showing the vineyard wineries, many of which are open... More

If you like stunning lake & vineyard views, challenging bike routes, rich regional history, or wineries & wine, then the Lavaux area is where you have to go! Best time to visit is form early spring to late autumn when the vines have leaves, adding to the atmosphere. To get an expression, check out my photos!

Very impressive to see all of the vineyards in the hillside facing Lake Leman and the Alps. The view is awesome. We took the scenic train, unfortunately there was no guide but we had a visitor on the train that explained everything to us.

We took a little train from Vevey to Chexbres. Charming little town! From there we walked down a VERY scenic little path through the vineyards to St Saphorin. It was simply BEAUTIFUL! We could see the terraced vineyards stretching out in both directions (30 km!) and understood why this area has been protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We... More

This place deserves to belong to the World Patrimony! Truly breathtaking view on a very special and beautiful lake and surrounding. Impossible not to go if you are in the region. At least have a drink in one of the restaurants with view.
