Discover a different taste of travel

Since the dawn of European history, Switzerland has enjoyed a privileged position at the crossroads of the Continent. For centuries, the Lake Geneva Region in particular has been a key communications hub. The region possesses a highly efficient public transport system of remarkable diversity and density. From funicular and aerial cableway to steam train and ship, we invite you to discover a different taste of travel, a wealth of scenic splendours and a region rich in heritage and history. The countless combinations of transport permit you to create your own “à la carte” itineraries and excursions. We recommend in particular two attractive public transport offers – the Regional Pass “Lake Geneva-Alps” and the Swiss Travel System. Each enables you to criss-cross the Lake Geneva Region as you wish and to explore its many diverse delights. Both are explained on page 16 of this guide.

Access The main railway routes of Europe converge in the heart of the Lake Geneva Region. The TGV Lyria links Paris with Lausanne, and the TGV South-East connects Montpellier and Marseille with Geneva *. The Pau Casals travels from Barcelona to Lausanne, which is also directly accessible from Milan, Florence or Venice. From Hamburg, Berlin and Frankfurt you can travel to Basel ** by the ICE. Geneva’s international airport and integral railway station, served by many major airlines, is a convenient gateway that opens up the Lake Geneva Region to the world. * Geneva – Lausanne: 33 minutes ** Basel – Lausanne: 2 hours 08 minutes

Unusual forms of Transport

DREAMING ALONG THE RIGHT TRACK Among all the many means of transport operating throughout the Lake Geneva Region, there are some which never fail to fascinate just that little bit more – to make the heart beat faster and to fire the imagination.They have their origins in times long gone and bear witness to a proud and pioneering past. They represent a certain way of life, a nostalgic taste of travel deep-rooted in our dreams. They operate at varying times (depending on the season and locality), so please consult the local tourist offices, timetables and ticket offices for full information. For local tourist office addresses and numbers > see page 18

Cogwheel

Post Buses

As their name suggests, these trains are equipped with a central cogwheel which engages with a toothed rack between the rails so as to provide traction. In this way they are able to climb and descend the steepest slopes in perfect safety. Several of them date from the Belle Epoque.

Switzerland’s famous fleet of yellow post buses offers a huge choice of excursion destinations and countless combinations with other means of public transport. T : 0900 40 20 40 (CHF1.19.-/min) _www.carpostal.ch PubliCar is a special “à la carte” minibus service, which takes you to more remote and less frequented regions. A phone call is all that’s needed! T : 0800 60 30 60 (toll-free number)

Old-timer trains

Steamships the legends live on! The Compagnie Générale de Navigation sur le lac Léman (Lake Geneva Navigation Company) was founded in 1873 – today it operates a fleet of 17 stately cruise vessels. The newest is the “Lavaux”, launched in 2006. The oldest is the “Montreux”, which entered service in 1904. The fleet includes no fewer than eight paddle-wheel vessels dating from the Belle Epoque, of which five (including the “Montreux”) are steam-driven. The finest fleet of its kind in Europe! (See page 3).

Re-live the magic and the memories of a more leisurely lifestyle – climb aboard the old-timer trains on our dream lines.

Cable Car The various skiing regions throughout the Lake Geneva Region Alps are served by no fewer than 200 mountain transport installations. These ensure winter season access to some 400 kilometers of superb ski slopes, heavenly hiking trails throughout the summer and panoramas of breathtaking beauty – many of which can be enjoyed while you dine and wine on traditional local specialties.

As a flagship of the Swiss patrimony, the Lavaux region, a characteristic vineyard

built on terraces for almost 14 km along Lake Geneva, has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Programme since June 2007. A well deserved distinction for this wine-growing region offering a marvelous view of the lake and the snowcovered mountain peaks.
