Overview
More
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 !

The Swiss Vapeur Parc is brilliant. There is a fantastic range of trains, ranging from real steam to electrics and diesels. The tracks are long and varied (and being expanded when we visited) with lots of interesting bridges, tunnels and features. There are various stations...More

This was such a lovely little place and a fun day out. We went near Halloween and it was all decorated and the staff painted their faces. The trains were great and the attention to detail around the park was brilliant.
