“Kids loved it even in the rain.” 5 of 5 bubbles
Review of Swiss Vapeur Parc

Swiss Vapeur Parc
Certificate of Excellence

Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: 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 !

“Kids loved it even in the rain.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

This is a quaint little place to visit where you and the kids can ride upon the mini trains around the track. My kids 6,3 and 2 throughly enjoyed the time there it was a little rainy when we went but the trains still kept going round. When it got busier they brought out some more trains.
Was nice to walk around as well plenty of toilets located for the little ones. The site is well done.
The price is good especially if as the little ones are all free and there is a restaurant with a choice of food to choose from. As with anywhere it can get a bit pricey if there are quite a few of you but there is the option to eat outside with a picnic too or you can leave the site and come back as they stamp your hand.
I would defintately recommend especially as this is somewhere which is open for a sunday activity where so many places here are not.

Ok, let me tell you I wouldn't have ever stopped here if I hadn't a kid.
But I'd have missed some fun!!!
We had such a good time here riding several mini vapor trains, walking along the streets and watching the mini landscape of Switzerland.
It's a funny place to spend a couple of hours.

“Fun for kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

Fun for kids to ride miniature trains and to view miniature replicas of famous spots in Switzerland. Good day outing especially if paired with boat or train ride. Check railaway special offers from Swiss Train System for discount on travel and entrance tickets.

“within minutes you go back to your kid age !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

It is nice and great. Even more when sunny. It offers a numerous sort of train and type. Travelling within a landscape that offers replica of typical places and region. Not expensive for what it is and for switzerland. only negative aspect is the restaurant inside the parc that offers a poor menu and expensive plates.

“An easy enjoyable day with kids in Switzerland”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

This park is great on a sunny day, not having to get tired and spend some easy times with kids. It is not that big -could have been more to see but actually the size is good enough for a not-so-tiring experience! The food alternatives are not much, it might be good idea to bring some food and make picnic in the park. My boys, 8 and 5, enjoyed the train rides and we did about 5 times around the parc! There is a nice and big aquaparc near by so the whole day can be spent in this area if you plan it as such! On the way back, we went Evian and then Yvoire, so it is a nice day around Lac Leman especially when it is sunny!!
