Public tours on Sundays in Lavaux

Every Sunday, from May to October, tour Lavaux with a qualified guide and experience Lavaux to the full.

From the banks of the wine-growing town of Cully to the charming little village of Grandvaux, this educational and fun walk gives you the chance to soak in the exceptional atmosphere that you’ll find both in the narrow streets and in the millennia-old vineyards. 

 

Afterwards, in the heart of the vineyard or the gardens of the Maison Buttin-de-Loës, itself a listed building, you’ll be treated to a convivial drink.  As you gently make your way back down to Cully, take in the breathtaking views over the 
10 000 terraces and 400 km of walls of this incomparable vineyard.

Photographic excursion in Lavaux

Click!  Click!  Turn yourself into a photojournalist in an idyllic setting thanks to this day of discovery at the Swiss Camera Museum and in the heart of the terraced vineyards of Lavaux.

The school outing starts off with a visit to the Swiss Camera Museum, then a photographer will introduce the participants to the basic techniques used both with a high performance camera and a simple mobile phone.  During your visit, we will take a photograph of your class inside the Museum and we will forward you the file by email.

After some free time for a midday picnic (in the museum gardens or beside Lake Vevey), you will take the train to Saint-Saphorin where a Guide from Lavaux Heritage will welcome you.  He will reveal to you the secrets which led this unique landscape to being listed as a UNESCO World heritage site and will help you to discover the charm of one of the most beautiful Swiss villages.  With your cameras, you will be able to set to work capturing the moment in this magnificent setting.
