Swiss Vapeur Parc

The Swiss Vapeur Parc is a miniature park in Le Bouveret, a village on Lac Léman, Switzerland. It was opened on June 6, 1989, by an International Festival of Steam (therefore steam trains).

When the park opened its total surface area was 9000 m² (2.2 acres), but the park expanded and as of 2007, the park covers a surface area of 17'000 m² (or 4.2 acres). In 1989, the park possessed only 2 locomotives (one running on benzine and one on steam). As of 2007, the number of trains running on benzine has sextupled while the number of steam trains has increased to 9 trains. By March 31, 2007, the Park has had 2'126'000 visitors.

Every June the park is host to the International Steam Festival.

While it can get busy in the weekends, don't park far away, otherwise you need to take a bus ride. You can still find parking in front of the park.

Ride the coal-powered steam locomotives & electric trains, but don't forget to check out the building replicas. Luxury of time? Take the CGN boat line to or from Montreux, Vevey, or Lausanne-Ouchy.
